The IT department offers free services for all students. We’re here to help with issues such as:
Student Username and Password
Your username should have been provided to you. If not, your username is comprised of your initials followed by the last four digits of your student ID. For example:
John H. Doe with Student ID P000123456 would have a username of JHD3456.
All new student accounts have a default password that begins with MOC_ and ends with the last six digits of their student ID. For example:
John H. Doe with Student ID P000123456 would have a password of MOC_123456.
We strongly recommend all students change their passwords once they have successfully logged into
MyUMO for the first time. To change your password, simply click on Password Self‐Service from
MyUMO. (For a detailed explanation on how to change your password, please refer to the section titled

Cable TV IssueBack to Top
Our cable system requires a TV with a QAM tuner. Some TVs may have a QAM tuner, but do not operate on the correct band which may cause only some channels to be found.QAM is REQUIRED: QAM is the standard used to encode and transmit digital HD cable TV channels over coax cable. Many televisions manufactured after 2007 support QAM. However, since there is no FCC requirement for QAM support, most inexpensive TV models do not include a QAM tuner. Please refer to the TV's specifications for the existence of a QAM tuner before purchase for campus use. Without a QAM tuner a digital conversion box is required. See Digital Conversion Box Details below.NTSC tuners are NOT compatible: NTSC was the standard analog television system used in the United States from 1941 to 2009. TV manufacturers still include the ability to tune to this type of system because some cable TV companies continue to provide basic programming in analog.ATSC tuners are NOT compatible: ATSC tuners are tuners that allow over-the-air reception of digital television (DTV) channels transmitted by local television stations. The FCC required all television manufacturers to include an ATSC tuner in all products since 2007, and required television broadcasters to switch in 2009.You can purchase a digital QAM converter box from this website:- Amazon Smile
If you order a converter box, be sure it is the EXACT model we recommend.
The Channel Lineup will be different if using a Digital Converter.
