How do I get started?
To access TConnect go to the Temple College web page at www.templejc.edu and select the TConnect link or the Web Registration link.

How do I get a user name and password?
Your user name and password are automatically set up when you register for classes at Temple College.  

If you are an employee of Temple College, your user name and password will follow the same format as shown below.  

Your user name consists of the following: 
  • Your last name plus first initial and the last 3 numbers of your Student or employee ID
  • Your initial password is your 6-digit birth date in the mmddyy format
User name example:  Nora Jones ID #0020243 = jonesn243
Password example:  January 1, 1985 = 010185

The first time you log into TConnect, you will be required to change your password for security purposes.  The new password:
  • must contain at least 6 characters but no more than 9
  • is required to include both letters and numbers
  • will be case sensitive (if you enter it with upper case letters you will always have to enter it that way)
  • must be completely different than your initial password
  • cannot include your name or birth date in any form
You can also leave a “hint” in case you forget your password!  However, if you forget your password and did not leave a hint or the hint just doesn't help you remember, you can have a temporary password e-mailed to your TC WebMail account by clicking on the For Students menu and selecting "What's My Password?".  After you enter last name and Student ID or Social Security Number your new temporary password will be sent to your Temple College e-mail account..  

HELPFUL TIPS
  • Before using TConnect for the first time, it may be helpful to click on the FAQ button included in the TConnect menu at the top right of the screen and to review the TConnect User's Guide.
  • Your initial TConnect password and your WebMail password are NOT the same
    • The TConnect password is entered in the mmddyy format and you will be required to change it the first time you log in.
    • The WebMail password is entered in the mmddyyyy format and will NOT change when you reset your TConnect password!
  • Use the mouse to make selections - DO NOT press the Enter key.
  • To move around in forms, use the tab key or the mouse.
  • Don't use the browser's back button (this seems to confuse the program sometimes) so always click Menu or Submit when you want to move from page to page.
  • On some screens, you may need to scroll down to see the Submit button.
  • Print from TConnect by selecting File and Print from the Menu Bar. Selecting landscape instead of portrait from the print menu may be best for some pages!
  • When clicking of the Submit button, click once and wait!.  If you click more than once, you will get a "Multiple Submit" warning and have to start over again so try to be patient especially during busy times like registration!
