Student Email

MCNY has upgraded our Student Email services. For your convenience, you can access your MCNY email account directly or go to

Getting Started

An email account will typically be created automatically for all registered students within 24 hours of registration. The standard format of the new email accounts will be your first initial combined with your last name (jdoe). In the case of a duplicate, a number will be added (jdoe1, jdoe2, etc). Here are the steps to retrieve your email account,

  1. Have your Student ID number available.
  2. Enter in your browser to get to the email home page and login screen.
  3. To begin using your student account use the Lookup My User ID tool; this will provide you with the email account that was created for you. [Note: You must be a registered student in order to retrieve your account information]
  4. Enter your 9-digit student ID and the system will return your new email User ID (email address).
  5. On the Student email homepage ( Enter your User ID. The default password is your Date of Birth in the format of "MMDDYYYY".

  • Click on the Options and Styles pull down menu towards the top-right of your screen;
  • Choose the Forwarding option;
  • In the following dialogue box, enter the email address you wish to have your MCNY Email forwarded to, and click on SAVE.
