Welcome to the New Augusta Technical College Portal

Augusta Technical College updated the SmartWeb student portal in February 2015. SmartWeb is your student information portal and the official method of communication used by the College. If you used the previous portal, you can see that things have changed. First of all, email is now through Gmail, for student and adjuncts, and can be accessed by clicking the  icon to the left. Secondly, Banner Web can be accessed by clicking the Banner WebSSB Bannner icon. For further info on how to use the portal, please continue.   

 

 

To log into the portal, do the following:

  1. Navigate to the website https://smartweb.augustatech.edu, or click on the SmartWeb tab on the www.augustatech.edu website. This will bring you to the Augusta Technical College portal page.

(Note: On the login page, there are some helpful links to assist in making logging in an easy process. The first link, 'READ THIS FIRST', is to provide instructions to logging into the portal. The last two links, 'Forgot Password' and 'Reset Password', are to provide a way to reset a password in case it is forgotten.)

  1. Your login name will be your Augusta Technical College credentials.
    1. For full-time faculty & staff members use your work computer username and password.
    2. For adjunct faculty & students use your SmartWeb user name. If this your first time using the new SmartWeb portal, the password will be your Student ID, or 900 number. For example, 900######.
  2. Before you can continue to the new SmartWeb portal you must answer and save the 5 password reset security questions. Every question must be completed and the answers should be at least 3 characters in length. Be sure to remember your answers because they will be needed in case you forget your password. This will happen automatically for first time users only.

  1. Once you are finished, make sure to select the "Save" button on the bottom of the page. Upon completion you will see a "Questions updated successfully" note appear near the top of the page.

  2. From here you can proceed to Step 2 and create a new password by entering and then verifying that new password. Click OK.

  1. To complete your password change, please click the 'SignOut' button and log in with your new password.
