Accessing Your Online Course (after you register)

After you register for the course, there are two more steps to follow to get into your online course:

I. Creating a myTC3 Account

To access your online course, you must first create a myTC3 Account (if you do not already have one):

  • Select “myTC3” at the top of the page.
  • Then select “myINFO”.
  • If you are a new user you will have to request access.
  • Select “New User
  • Under the myINFO section, select “Set up your account
  • Fill in all information and request an account.

You now have been issued a myTC3 username/password along with your student ID, which is provided under the “My ID Card Number” link. Please make note of your myTC3 username/password and student ID number, you will need them throughout your education experience with CollegeNow.

II. Logging Into Your Course

After creating your myTC3 account, you will now need to access your online course by:

  • Select “myTC3” at the top of the page
  • Select “Web Courses”.
  • Follow the instructions that follow.

Once you have access to your online course, it is highly recommended that you complete the online student orientation at least one-week prior to the start date of the course.
