Technology Support Services
Welcome to Technology Support Services (TSS). We support Moreno Valley College and the success of our students by providing useful information in a timely manner, providing technical support to all users, and by meeting the needs of the learning process in regards to the usage of technical resources.
TSS also supports all academic programs, administrative departments, and student services by enhancing technology and its usage. We strive to provide a seamless solution to the latest innovative technologies in order to support the diverse learning environments.
Technical Support for Students
Students can get help with technical support for classes, software like Microsoft Office and Adobe, and more from the Computer Lab Helpdesk. The Computer Lab Helpdesk cannot help with account issues such as password resets. For account support with items such as access and password recovery, contact the student helpdesk.
Technology Support Services supports the Moreno Valley College and Ben Clark Training Center in three major areas: audio/visual services and equipment, information technology, and web development. All requests for support must be filed through ServiceDesk.
Provides training, service and support with all A/V equipment and services (LCD projectors, video conferencing, document cameras, etcetera).
Information Technology (IT)
Provides service and support for all technology devices (computers, laptops, printers, etcetera).
Provides service and support for all requests related to websites and web-based services at MVC.
The RCCD Helpdesk answers service calls, routes service tickets to appropriate support teams, and monitors quality of service. It can also provide guidance on how to submit requests.
Students may request basic technology and account support with items such as access and password issues through the student helpdesk by calling (951) 222-8388 and pressing 2 when prompted, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any staff or faculty member can submit their own Helpdesk requests/tickets by going to the ServiceDesk* (this is the preferred method) and logging in with your employee email and password. You can also contact the district Helpdesk at email@example.com or at (951) 222-8388.

RCCD's SSO portal allows access to email, 25Live, Canvas, electronic forms, as well as software like Microsoft Office and Adobe. Students and employees must know their RCCD email and password. Simply log in and click on the icon of the service you wish to access.
