Frequently Asked Questions

What if there is only the CPCC email and no personal email or the personal email address listed is not accessible?

If you cannot access any of the email addresses in the "Select Email ID" dropdown, call the Service Desk to obtain assistance with resetting your password. Once your password has been reset, we recommend that you add a personal email address to your account to make future password resets easier (see "Adding Additional Emails to AMP" for instructions).

Can an employee or student get their password reset in person?

Yes, passwords can be reset by visiting the Service Desk. Our address, contact information, & hours of operation are posted on the homepage of our Client Portal.

What if I have forgotten my username?

We can only provide you with your username after verifying your identity. Please call the Service Desk or visit us in person for further assistance. If you choose to call, be advised that we will need to initiate a brief video call with you in order to verify a photo ID.
