How To Contact NCMC IT Helpdesk

Be sure emails include:

  • A summary of the problem in the email subject;
  • Enough information in the email body to allow IT Services staff to investigate the issue (for example: Brightspace troubleshooting usually requires CourseID and assignment title);
  • Any relevant attachments (for example: screenshots of errors).

Additional Recommendations:

  • Include your NCMC Username.
  • For network connectivity problems, include the device’s Mac Address which can be located in the devices network settings. (for example: PlayStation, Smart TV, etc.)
  • Users having issues with our Self-Service Network Account Tools will need to contact the IT Helpdesk by phone.  Self-Service issues will NOT be handled through email.

Note: If your call or email is received outside of business hours, IT Services will respond when we return to the office.
