High School Orientation - Technology/Hawknet

In this section, you'll learn about your SCC email address and how to use Hawknet - SCC's portal to your education.


SCC email account

Before you can do much of anything as an SCC student, you need an SCC email account. Not only is your email account for sending and receiving emails, it is basically your username for online access. As a new student, you will be given a student e-mail account when you are further along in the registration process. We will be sending important information about your registration, drop/refund deadlines, as well as communication from faculty, midterm and final grade notifications and other valuable announcements.

Using your Hawknet

Accessing your SCC email, online class pages and WebAdvisor

  1. Go to: www.scciowa.edu
  2. Click Hawknet/Email (in top, red toolbar)
    Hawknet login link
  3. Type in your username: username@scciowa.edu in the format of first initial, middle initial, last name, then "@scciowa.edu" (which becomes your email address). If you don't have a middle name, use a lowercase x as the middle initial. All letters are lowercase.
    Example 1: John Quisquam Public would have a username of jqpublic@scciowa.edu
    Example 2: Rosemarie Chavez would have a username of rxchavez@scciowa.edu

  • Print a schedule and check your grades with WebAdvisor for Students
  • Access your SCC files
  • Sign up for SCC campus closing and emergency alerts

Hawknet landing page

It is seriously important you get comfortable using this technology. A bonus of using your Hawknet is the daily notices about instructor absences and college closings, your daily calendar and personal to-do list, and quick link to your SCC email.

NOTE: Your Hawknet and email accounts are created after you complete testing and this orientation.
