Mikenet, the Campus Network
Mikenet delivers high-speed Internet access. With a Mikenet account, students have access to their college email, the mySMC portal, and network storage space and printing from virtually anywhere on campus. Mobile and gaming devices can be registered on the campus network for high speed internet access.
Through your Mikenet account, you will have access to various academic courseware programs without having to purchase your own copy. A Mikenet account is also necessary to use the college-owned computer labs, and to access some library resources.
Employees: New employees may need to apply for a Mikenet account using our online form or in person at the Helpdesk in 221C Saint Edmund's Hall. Make sure all paperwork for employment has been completed, signed, and returned to the Human Resources office before applying for an account. A Mikenet account is a prerequisite for most other types of accounts on campus.
Students: All new undergraduate students automatically receive a Mikenet account in their New Student Guide. Graduate students who register late will need to fill out an online form.
Community Connections, mySMC
The college portal, mySMC, is the gateway to Saint Michael's digital campus. Through the portal and your Mikenet login, you will have access to email, a link to KnightVision, Canvas, and the library's online catalog and databases, as well as campus announcements and events of interest, links to the academic calendar, and campus services and resources. Announcements and events for student clubs and activities are regularly posted on mySMC and in the daily digest.
Your email account is accessible directly through the portal. Just sign on with your Mikenet username and password and click the email link. Both your Mikenet account and your campus email account are ready for you to use right now, and the email account will remain yours for life (@mail.smcvt.edu). All students are expected to use their college email account on a regular basis to ensure that they receive important campus communications. (Official campus email will always be sent with "Office of ____" in the Sender field.)
Employees: Faculty and staff are provided with Microsoft Outlook email accounts. Employees may access their email accounts via the Internet from https://smcmail.smcvt.edu or through the mySMC portal. The email address for faculty and staff is email@example.com. The username and password for email are the same as for the Mikenet account.
Students: Saint Michael's provides email access for all students via the mySMC portal or via the web at http://smcvt.edu/mail. The email address for students is firstname.lastname@example.org. Each email account may be set up to work with a mobile device as well as through an Internet browser. Before setting up your mobile device with email access, you'll need to register it on the campus network. Directions for doing may be found at the Registration page.
KnightVision is a web-based application used primarily for on-line registration for classes. In addition, there are functions for supporting the faculty and staff areas. Access the application: Knightvision
Employees: Faculty use KnightVision to view information about their advisees and to see their class rosters and course offerings. Staff members may access KnightVision to review budget information and personal leave plans.
Students: KnightVision provides students with real-time information about their class schedules, their grades and their standing in relation to degree requirements. Students can use KnightVision to look up schedules of class offerings and, during defined registration periods, to register for classes.
KnightVision accounts are automatically created for all undergraduate students and matriculated graduate students. Students may access KnightVision through the mySMC portal or on the web. The KnightVision login ID and password are the same as the Mikenet login ID and password.
