All students who have taken at least one (1) credit or continuing education course at Carroll Community College have access to WebAdvisor, and may access their personal records. All Credit Faculty have access to WebAdvisor, and may access their individual course related records.
Access to WebAdvisor is strictly controlled to protect your privacy and the security of the information on Carroll's administrative database. Each time you access WebAdvisor you will need your User Name and your Password.
Your User Name is your first name, last name, and last four (4) digits of your College ID number - ALL in lower case with no spaces, and with no punctuation (i.e., no commas, no hyphens, no apostrophes.)
Your College ID number is located to the right of your name on your College/Library ID card if you are a credit student, and is mailed to you if you are a continuing education student.
Your PASSWORD is the last six (6) digits of your Social Security Number. For additional security, faculty are instructed to change their passwords upon entering WebAdvisor for the first time.
The only time WebAdvisor is not available is from midnight to 6:00 a.m. daily due to scheduled system maintenance. On occasion, the system may be down for maintenance and/or upgrades. Information regarding system downtime will be posted on the College web site.
WebAdvisor will operate effectively with Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla, or Netscape browsers on Windows, Macintosh, and most other operating systems. For best results, your browser should be version 5.x or newer.
Please note that older Netscape and AOL browsers have known bugs which will sometimes interfere with the proper function of WebAdvisor. If you experience difficulties when using older Netscape browsers or while using AOL please try using one of the other browsers listed above.
You can access WebAdvisor from any location with Internet access.
The information on WebAdvisor is the most current data available, since WebAdvisor is interacting directly with the College's administrative information system. Data is available immediately as it is entered or updated.
Without your User Name and Password, no one can view your information. You should protect your information by selecting the "Log Out" option when you are finished using WebAdvisor.
Sharing your WebAdvisor User Name and Password with your parents, spouse or colleague is left to your discretion. Any person who has your User Name and Password will be able to view all of your information that is available on WebAdvisor. Please note that Carroll will not give out your User Name and/or Password to anyone but you, and we will require you to secure this information in-person with proper photo ID.
