Accepted Student FAQs
After you register for courses, you can access your MyMAC portal page by going to portal.mtaloy.edu. Your username will be everything before the @student.mtaloy.edu of your email address and your password will be your student ID number. You can also access Blackboard and your student email from the portal.
Housing assignments are typically released in early July. You will receive information on which residence hall you are assigned to, as well as your roommate’s contact information.
Housing assignments are made based on the date of the housing deposit and housing application forms. The earlier you put down your housing deposit, the more likely you are to get your housing preferences.
The Residence Life Staff will try their best to honor student preferences when it comes to housing, though no guarantees can be made. You can request a specific roommate on the housing application form, but it must be a mutual request for it to be considered (in other words, your desired roommate must fill out the application and request you as a roommate as well).
Students check in with Residence Life first to get their keys and sign paperwork. They can then move their belongings into the residence halls. Typically, move-in is from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
We require certain health forms before you start school. For a complete listing, please click here: https://mtaloy.edu/health-services/.
