What Is My Condor ID and Password?

Your Condor ID

Your Condor ID is your first initial, and last name. Variations can occur if you share a name with a current college employee. For example, if there were two John Smiths at the college, the second would be jsmith1.

Your Email Address

Your email address contains your Condor ID, and the @conestogac.on.ca email suffix.

Your Default Password

Default passwords have the format Cc and your employee number.  Whenever you reset your password with IT Services, we will reset it to this.
