My Mac.edu

My Mac.edu

My Mac.edu is MacMurray College's web-based portal for students, families, faculty, and staff. The portal is a versatile tool that aims to improve communication between all facets of the campus community.

Logging In

Your username for My Mac.edu is your MacMurray ID number. This six-digit number is assigned to students, faculty, and staff upon joining MacMurray College.

To procure a password, new users must enter their ID number into the username field in the upper right hand corner of the window and click I forgot my password. This will generate an email with a new password with which you may sign in. The email address to which the password is sent will be your MacMurray-issued email address.

Once you are logged in, you may change this password to whatever you like by clicking Personal Info in the upper right hand corner of the window, next to your name.

Guests are allowed to navigate certain portions of the portal without logging in. These include the home page and the Admissions tab.

Navigation

Even though the portal is browser-based, it relies heavily on its own navigation tools instead of those built into your web browser. Because of this, the Back and Refresh buttons in your browser will sometimes generate errors when used.

To avoid this, please be sure to use links within the portal itself to navigate. Each page has breadcrumb links (prefaced with "You are here:") underneath the blue main menu that will aid in this.

Links in the blue main menu are referred to as "tabs." Large bold links denoted by a folder icon in the blue menus on the left hand side of the page are referred to as "sub-sections." Smaller bold links in the blue menus on the left hand side of the page are referred to as "pages."
