Getting Started

Multi-Factor Security - Microsoft Authenticator

1. Activating your account

You will receive an email from the EBC IT Department with your username and temporary password.  You will need this information in order to log on for the first time.

 

Activate Your Account

  1. Click on the link in the email to log on for the very first time
  2. Type in your MyEBC email address
  3. Type in the temporary password and log in

Pick a strong password

  1. If you have not already, watch the 3 minute video on our Cyber Security page (link) about how to pick a good password
  2. Choose and type in in a password that is unique to this account, and has strong protection.
2. Set up Recovery Email Address

Set up a recovery email address for your MyEBC account. This is critical in case you ever lose your phone or change your number.  If you don’t set up a recovery email address, you may end up locked out of your account.

  1. Go to the security information page and “Add sign-in method” for email, here: https://mysignins.microsoft.com/security-info

3. Install Microsoft Teams on your Devices or Laptop

In order to receive hours for attendance, your laptop, iPhone or Android mobile device you need to have the Microsoft Teams application.

You can find the Microsoft Teams application in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store

4. Add your student email to your mobile device

In order to check your student email on your iPhone or Android mobile device, you must install the Microsoft Outlook application.

 

Other email applications do not properly enforce the security protections that we require for your email.

You can find the Microsoft Outlook application in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store

5. Check your student email

Once you have activated your account, use the link in the student portal to log into your student email.

You can find the link on the side of the student portal website.

At Evergreen Beauty College, we handle sensitive student information, such as your account and financial aid information.  As a result, the system will let you log in a few times before you are required to install the Microsoft Authenticator application. If you see the screen shot below, be sure to follow its instructions to set up your authentication checks.
