Effective August 18, 2021, Masks are required in all indoor spaces at BCC. This applies to any vaccination status. For more, please see our COVID-19 Policies page.


Information Technology (IT)

All BCC students are required to change their BCC password by April 1, 2021.

Beginning on April 1 at 4pm any student who has not updated their password will be locked out of their BCC account until a password change is completed.  Click here for instructions and/or help with changing your BCC password.

If you have already updated your password within the past several weeks then no further action is necessary.

Current Status

 The MyBCC Portal is being updated to serve you better.

We will continue to keep you updated as work progresses.

The Information Technology department at BCC ensures that the College's computer hardware, software, educational technology, network, and data assets are available, effective and secure.

IT Department roles include:

  • Deploying new technology to solve problems and meet College needs
  • Maintaining existing technology implementations
  • Establishing user accounts, including access to email and cloud storage, for students, faculty and staff
  • Administering College networks and systems on an ongoing basis, including coordinating sustainability expansions
  • Providing appropriate access to, and rigorous security for, College information databases

Stay Connected!

High-speed wifi is available on campus for all students to use. You don't even have to leave your car! Wifi is available in some of the campus parking lots, as well as inside all campus buildings. We ask that students fill out a Campus Access Request Form if they're coming indoors, but you can take advantage of the wifi from outside without needing a form.

    While we continue to work as hard as ever to restore the computer services, the pace at which we hit benchmarks that are noticeable to our campus as whole has slowed.  We are therefore going to update you once a day. We will obviously make exceptions to this if the situation warrants. It is important to us that we keep you informed of our progress as best we can so that we can maintain the trust of the community.

    We currently have one change in the status of BCC’s computer systems to report.

    The BCC Apply Online app is back up and functional.

    It was a long weekend but we can report that CROA is back up and operational.

    While we have prioritized the restoration of services used in the teaching and support of our students, the portal currently remains down, and therefore so does WebAdvisor.

    As we mentioned in our Friday morning update, students who had not logged in to MyBCC prior to last Tuesday will have problems accessing Moodle and their BCC email accounts.  Please have them email the Help Desk. We need to make a slight adjustment to their account.

    Our outside contractors start today.  They will not only help us recover but also provide suggestions so that we may better serve you in the future.

    We will continue to keep you updated.  And we are again sorry for the frustration and inconvenience you are all experiencing,

     The MyBCC portal is still down. Please use the following direct links to access Moodle or your BCC email:

    • Moodle: https://moodle.berkshirecc.edu - You will log in with your BCC username (“s” + “your student ID number” without  the @berkshirecc.edu on the end”) and password. 
    • BCC Email: https://outlook.com/berkshirecc.edu - For this login with your complete email address (“s” + “your student ID number” with  the @berkshirecc.edu on the end”) and password.

    If a student had never logged in to MyBCC before this incident they won’t be able access either email or Moodle with their initial password. We need to make a slight adjustment so that they can log in. Please email the Help Desk.

    We will continue to keep you updated as work progresses.

    The MyBCC portal is currently down; the IT department has been notified. Moodle is unaffected and is currently functioning as usual, but must be accessed via the direct link until the portal issue is resolved:

    This type of issue is usually resolved quickly, but in the meantime please use the direct link and share with students as needed. We will follow up when the MyBCC portal has been restored.
