Additional highlights and services

Every student, staff and faculty member at St. Louis Community has something called a mySTLCC ID, an A-number, and an STLCC email address. The mySTLCC ID is your universal username for all the systems for the College.

A-Number

Think of your A-number as your St. Louis Community College social security number. Your A-number is provided to you either by your hiring manager or HR. It is a very good idea to memorize this number as you will need it for many processes for the college.

mySTLCC ID

This is a unique username issued to you. The id is created by an algorithm using your first name, last name, and if needed numbers. To find out your mySTLCC ID, click the link below, enter your A# number, last name, and birthday to reveal your MySTLCC ID and email.

Access your MySTLCC ID

mySTLCC Password

Your mySTLCC password allows you access to virtually al systems on campus. The default password is set to your A-number followed by the pound or number sign (#). For Example, if your A-number is A001234567 your default password would be A001234567#. Your password expires every 365 days. You will receive reminders when your password is about to expire but remember to change it.

Be secure and change your password

When changing your password, ensure that you always use a new, never before used password that meets the following rules

  • Minimum of 10 characters, max of 23
  • At least:
    • 1 capital letter
    • 1 lower case letter
    • 1 number
    • Special character, for example #$%^&*(^@
  • No repeating letters or numbers, for example AAA or 111
  • No simple words
  • No previously used passwords or phrases

Security Questions

It's easy to come back from a semester break and not quite remember your MySTLCC account password. Set up three security questions so regaining access is as stress-free as your break.

St. Louis Community College uses Blackboard Learn for its learning management system. The Online Education Group partners with IT to provide a holistic support approach to our faculty members for Blackboard Learn.

Accessing Blackboard Learn

The nice thing about Blackboard Learn is that it can be used in a variety of ways and it has many interactive tools and features from which you can choose. Blackboard Learn is a great place to post your syllabus, PowerPoint presentations, YouTube videos, web links, and grades in the My Grades tool. This gives students access to your course materials without having to carry a lot of paperwork around and especially right now in our remote times. The course information is available to them 24/7 anywhere they can access Wi-Fi or use a mobile app. In addition, Blackboard Learn has communication and assessment tools. Potential ways to leverage Blackboard Learn in your course may include:

  • Posting and/or Curating Content: Word, PowerPoint, Excel, PDF, audio files, image files, links to websites, links to videos, YouTube videos, Flickr images, links to library e-reserves
  • Communicating with Students: announcements, external email, internal messages, threaded discussion boards, blogs, journals, wikis, calendar
  • Assessing Students: assignments, tests, rubrics
  • Grading and Evaluation: grades can be made available to students
  • Fostering Collaborative Learning: Utilizing Blackboard Collaborate to provide live streaming of your lecture, student collaboration on assignments, discussion boards, journals, blogs and wikis
