You need to access a variety of resources just to navigate the administrative aspects of going to school. Here are the links and processes for getting into Blackboard, RC Email, and Campus Connect as well as other facilities and tools.
Ranger College uses Google for many services, including email.
To set up your email account for the first time, visit the Gmail homepage. Depending on whether or not your computer is public, like in the library, or private, you may see a list of other accounts. At the bottom of that list is an option to “Use Another Account.” Select that option and enter the requested information.
The username is email@example.com. The password is ranger1926.
Once you have logged into the account the first time, you will need to change your password. Select the Google apps icon in the upper right corner.
Then choose Account then Security. Click on the word Password in the third box and follow the instructions. First, it will ask you to confirm your identity by entering the current password. On the next page, you will need to enter the new password twice.
You may set your email account up to be forwarded to another account you check more regularly. At the top right corner of your email page, select the Settings button (looks like a gear), then select See All Settings.
Select the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab (sixth tab across).
Select the Add a forwarding address button and enter the personal email address the RC email needs to be forwarded to. Select Next and then Proceed. A confirmation email will go to the forward address.
