Step 2: Pirates Net & Student Email

All MJC Students have access to PiratesNet, our student portal which will allow you to register for classes, check your grades, pay fees, and much more. 

MJC students also receive an email account through Microsoft Office 365. This includes the full suite of Microsoft Office programs.

Your student email account is your link to Modesto Junior College professors, departments, and other students! Student email addresses will be used by faculty to contact students enrolled in their classes and for college staff to inform you of important announcements like your registration dates and times, payment dates, financial aid, class cancellations, new class offerings and more. Make sure you check it regularly.

Your account will have a 5GB mailbox size and a 10MB attachment limit. You may use this account to easily send and receive messages, manage your calendar, and track contacts. Your email account is web-based and can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection.
