Please Note

Are You a Returning Student?

If you do not remember what your username or password is, go to the online  Password Manager and use the "Forgotten Username" or "Forgotten Password" tool. To retrieve your username, you will need your 7 digit MATC ID number, as found on your Stormer Card or class schedule.

  • Route 1: Log into the MATC portal and use the Blackboard module's links to view your courses.
