New system goes live Jan. 2.

Columbia College has moved away from eServices to a new and improved CougarTrack portal. Thanks to all faculty, staff and students who attended the CougarTrack Showcase Dec. 4. Congratulations to the folks who participated in the raffle and won prizes, which included six Amazon gift cards, 11 Barnes & Noble gift cards, six CougarTrack polos and 12 Dulany lunch passes. Erin Wheeler, Senior Coordinator for Financial Aid, and Keith Lyles, Institutional Research Analyst, were the winners of 19-inch monitors.

CougarTrack provides the same functionality as eServices and offers:

  • New enhanced layout for easy navigation
  • One stop for important college announcements and events
  • Targeted content based on your affiliation with the college
  • Integration with Cougarmail and Exchange calendars
  • Single sign-on to Cougarmail, Exchange, WebAdvisor links (such as Registration, Grades, My Documents, etc).
  • A cohesive look and feel


Important CougarTrack notes:

  • Students need to complete an Account Re-Synch. This will take about 1 minute and does not require the student to change his or her password.  On the new CougarTrack page, click Account Synchronization on the left side of the login page.
  • Students will be prompted to enter their user name and password to access Touchnet.
  • The first time you log into Colleague via CougarTrack, you need to enter your username and password by clicking "Modify your single sign on credentials." You will not be prompted for your username and password again until you reset your password.
  • To log out you should click the Logout button or close your entire browser. Closing the tab will not log you out of CougarTrack.
