Username and Password Assistance

Central Arizona College Domain Account

All Central Arizona College students are automatically assigned a Central Arizona College Domain Account upon admission to CAC.   This account is used to access Blackboard and the CAC Student E-mail, and to login to computer in the computer labs across the district.  You can look up your domain account information in the "Online Services" area under personal information and e-mail addresses.

One Account for Multiple Purposes

Students no longer have separate usernames and passwords for Blackboard, E-mail and the Network.  Students now use a single account - their CAC Domain Account - to access all three areas.

Account Format

Your CAC Domain Account username is your full CAC Student e-mail address.  The full e-mail address is required to login.  If a name has been duplicated numbers are added at the end of the usernames.  Hyphenated lastnames do not have a – in the username.  Double firstnames do not have a space or – in the username.

For example:,,

Default Account Password

The default password is your birthday in MMDDYYYY format - 8 numbers are required.  For example, if you were born March 15, 1986 your password will be 03151986.
