Registration for SCC Students

As an SCC student, you've already been assigned an e-mail address from Microsoft's Office 365 cloud service ( and a password (the same one you use on campus computers or the MyBigfoot student portal) that you can use to register with Microsoft IT Academy. Alternatively, a Live, Hotmail, Outlook, or Xbox account will also work. If you're accessing this from off campus, you will be asked to sign in first with your Bigfoot username and password to verify that you're a student before being redirected to the registration site.
