NMC Students: Access Your Own Virtual Desktop

As part of NMC’s continuous technology improvements, students are now able to access the “NMC Student Wireless” and their own “Individual Virtual Desktop” at any computer workstations on the NMC’s Student Domain. This access is only available on campus for enrolled students at Northern Marianas College.

How do I get my domain access?

Easy! Stop by Building W, Room W4, Monday - Friday from 8:30am - 11:30am and 3:30-5:00pm. Please bring with you your current NMC Student ID and a valid government issued ID. In addition to being able to access your student email account you will be asked to read and acknowledge our “Northern Marianas College Network Access Rules” electronically. We will then verify that your email address is correct and valid and send you your domain account information via your student email.

We will also assist you in changing your password and set-up your Wi-fi connection on your mobile or laptop device.

Your domain access account information will include the following:

Username: jane.doe (all characters before the “@” sign of your student email address, some exceptions may apply)

Password: xxxxxxx (a temporary password will be provided for you)

What does access to "student desktop at any computer workstation" mean?

By agreeing to the terms and conditions of the “Northern Marianas College Network Access Rules for Students”, you will be able to log-on to any computer connected to the "Student Network Domain" using a your student domain username and password, instead of using the username “student”. Currently, the following lab classrooms/labs will require you to provide your domain access information:

1. Student Open Computer Lab – Building V (Entrance Log-in still Required)
2. Library Services
3. English Lab
4. Nursing Lab

Once you have logged in, you will be asked to change your passwords for security purposes. This also means that you are now able to access your individual virtual desktop on any computer connected to the student domain, mymarianas. You can see your desktop, save your personal files, and have your browser to conduct research on the Internet.

Of course, as a rule-of-thumb, always back up your documents in two or three other location other than your individual desktops, AND ALWAYS LOG-OFF to prevent unauthorized tampering of your account.

What does access to "NMC Student Wireless" mean?

You will use the same domain access username and passwords provided to access college wireless "NMC Student Wireless" anywhere on campus on your laptop or device. Although you will not be able to see your desktop, you can freely use the service to access the Internet.

Please note that the domain access passwords may be changed periodically, but we will inform you of such changes via email through your student email account. If you still have questions, please feel free to email us of your concerns.
