How to get a student number?
Your student number is assigned when you apply for any of the courses at the college. The number is your academic student number and will only be yours for life. Endeavor to keep it in a safe and easily accessible place as you might need it anytime.
If you are a new student and you are yet to pick a DC course, you can get it by proceeding with your online registration. Once completed, a Durham College student number will be generated for you.
The student number assigned to you can be used for course registration and other college activities. Still, if you have been provided a student number but can’t remember it, call the Continuing Education office at 905.721.3052.

What is MyDC?
MyDC is a web-based portal for Durham College students to access campus resources and information. It is formerly known as MyCampus. Within the MyDC environment, you will be able to access your DC mail account, Self Service options, DC Connect, important dates and deadlines, Announcements, Resources, and other Helpful links.
With the platform, students are no longer required to remember their respective domain names, instead, you have the convenience of authenticating from MyDC for access to multiple applications or websites fully allowed by the school.
At first look, it is easy to assume that the MyDC is built only for full-time day students, however, Part-time and Centre for Professional students also have lots of features tailored just for them. Some of the features are checking grades, requesting transcripts, and printing your tuition tax receipt.
