All Users - Students, Faculty and Employees
For New Students:
New students are issued a username and password for CougarWeb as well as a campus wide identification number (CWID) at the completion of admission.
If you do not have your username and password, take a picture ID to the Admissions and Records Office at a campus near you or e-mail email@example.com. Requests should be generated from the email address on the student's Collin College application or from the email address on file with Collin's Admissions and Records office. The request should also include the student's full legal name and date of birth.
