Procedures for NEW STUDENTS

Default / Initial Password
When a new OTC student’s e-mail account is first created on the Office 365 site, an initial password is automatically generated. It is composed of Otc and the student’s birthday. More specifically, it starts with a capital “O” and lowercase “tc” (the initials OTC are an abbreviation for Okefenokee Technical College) plus the student’s birth date in MMDDYY format, where MM stands for the two-digit number of the month, DD stands for the date (use a leading zero if before the 10th of the month), and YY stands for the two-digit year.

Passwords are case-sensitive; usernames are not.
