The first thing all faculty, staff, and students should do is to login to myACcount.actx.edu at the beginning of each semester. The myACcount system is where you go to setup and maintain your technology accounts (e.g. change passwords, change information about you in Amarillo College records, create or change an email alias, etc. To log on to myACcount, go to https://myaccount.actx.edu (or click on myACcount link from the main Amarillo College main page) and log on with your ACNetID and password.
This system allows you to monitor how Amarillo College may contact you in the case of emergencies and school closures. All employees and students are automatically entered into the AC Alert system; however participants may always opt out at their discretion. You may desire to change some of the information such as requesting text notifications, change email addresses, and add/remove telephone numbers and email addresses, or exempt yourself from any notifications. Check out AC Alerts at http://www.actx.edu/acalert or select the AC Alerts link from your myACcount main page.
Amarillo College provides students with an easy-to-use set of communication and collaboration tools from Google known as Google Apps. Gmail is one of those applications, and it provides extensive email services; and this email account is for life. Campus constituents should recognize that email is the official mode of communication with our students.
