To provide better service to wireless users, Chemeketa’s Information Technology will be turning on user authentication for the college’s Wi-Fi network during the weekend of Aug. 21-23. After this change, students and employees will be required to log in through a webpage with their My Chemeketa username and password to use college Wi-Fi.
The first time you connect during the current term , you will need to enter a passcode that you will find on the first page of My Chemeketa. A librarian can help you get this code.
To connect to Chemeketa’s Wi-Fi network after the change:
- Connect to the Wi-Fi network of your choice (CCCEmployee for employees, and CCCStudent for students)
- You should get redirected to a login page
- Use your My Chemeketa username and password to log in
- You are connected
Note: Most devices will either redirect you automatically to the login page, or alert you that additional actions are necessary to connect to the Internet. If this does not happen, browse to a non-secure site and you should be redirected to the login page.
Should you have any issues getting connected, please contact the IT Help Desk at 503.399.7899.

A menu will appear at right. Under Essentials, choose “Learn a Language”

Due to the nature of the work being performed by the provider, additional measures have been taken for redundancy in power to avoid any interruption. However, in event of an unforeseen issue during the maintenance window, brief period of service interruption cannot be entirely ruled out.
We apologize for not providing enough advance notification for this maintenance, and will make all efforts to keep any impact to a minimum.
