Student Portal Access

Use Student Portal Access to access students’ grades, schedule, etc. Students will see only their data. To setup or login, use the following info.
• Login is Student ID
• If students logged in last year, they will use the password they setup.
• If they are new to IC their Password is «first name initial»«last name initial»birthdate MMDDYY» (they can change their password after logging in).

Parents who forget their Portal log-in or password can click on “Problems logging in?”, type in their email address and they will be sent an email with their login information.
If an email address is used for more than one person in IC this feature will not work.
