At Your Fingertips - Online Services

Glen Oaks Community College provides several online services to support student success.  Students are expected to become familiar with and utilize these resources to manage their academic and financial responsibilities with GOCC.  

Our primary services include:


MyGOCC is the online portal for GOCC students, faculty, and staff.  Upon admission, each student is issued an email address, a user name, and a temporary password.  Students are required to change this temporary password for ongoing access to the MyGOCC portal.  Students access the MyGOCC portal and its related services by using a single sign-on of their username and password.  You are responsible for the security of your electronic credentials.  Usernames and passwords should not be shared with anyone else.  

By logging into MyGOCC, students can access personal information related to their academic attendance and planning;  campus work information;  finances/accounts and financial aid; grades; and tax information.   Students can log into their GOCC accounts by visiting the MyGOCC site.


Canvas is a learning management system that supports your coursework.  This software platform requires use of the student single sign-on credentials and is used by faculty members to post the course syllabus, assignments, scores and other course related information.  Scores for individual assignments or examinations may be posted in Canvas but official mid-term and final exam grades are posted in MyGOCC. Sign in to Canvas here.


Etrieve is the document management system at Glen Oaks. It contains forms needed to request specific services or control various aspects of your student record at the College. Using your student sign-on credentials, you can access and submit the forms through the Etrieve system. Sign into Etrieve here.


Watermark is a student retention software that supports your goals to earn the appropriate certificate or degree by facilitating the flow of information with your advisor, instructors, and coaches. Sign into Watermark here.


Glen Oaks Community College is committed to maintaining an environment where students, employees, and guests can take advantage of the academic and social offerings in a manner that supports the health, safety, and well-being of all individuals. If members of our community observe behaviors inconsistent with this goal, it is important to immediately report concerns to an appropriate College official for a prompt and timely investigation.  The Maxient software system allows for a convenient and confidential way to express concerns.  In addition, licensed counselors are available in the Student Services office to speak directly with students who have concerns.
