MyCCRI Error Messages

I am my wireless laptop at home, and I being prompted for a User ID and pin number.

You will need to check the firewall setting on your router. If it is set to high or medium, you will need to set it to low. You may also want to add *.ccri.edu as a trusted site in your browser.

Why am I getting a "Time Out or Session Expired" error?

You may get a Time Out or Session Expired message for a few reasons:

  • Some firewall products, for example Zone Alarm, will cause this message to appear. Try changing the security level (for example: from high to medium) or try temporarily disabling your firewall. After making any changes, remember to close out of your browser, reopen it and then try logging in again.
  • If you are using Internet Explorer, be sure that you are going out to the Microsoft site for the Windows critical updates and installing them.
  • Be sure that cookies are enabled.

Why am I being prompted to enter a User ID and pin when trying to access the tools under the For Students tab?

You may be prompted for a user id and pin for one of the following reasons:

1. If you are at your place of employment it is probably a firewall issue. The networking department may have ports 9000 or 9443 blocked which will prohibit a student from accessing the tools under the For Students tab.

2. If you are at home and are on a wireless laptop, it may be the firewall that is setup on the router. You need to either configure the router to allow access to *.ccri or disable the firewall.

3. When you login to your MyCCRI account, your credentials are verified with our student database and if there is a delay in the verification process, when you attempt to access the tools under the For Students tab you will be prompted to enter a User ID and pin number. If this is the case, just log out of your MyCCRI account and then log back in and that should resolve the issue.

Be sure that cookies are enabled and add CCRI as a trusted site in your browser.

  • If you are a student and haven't attended classes at CCRI in the last two academic years (in this case your account is no longer active) you will need to reactivate your account; do the Finding Your User Name to lookup your username which will activate your account

Why am I getting timed out from MyCCRI?

MyCCRI is currently set to time out after 15 minutes of inactivity. The timeout was established to minimize the risk of unauthorized access to personal data from a MyCCRI session that may be left on at a desktop computer or a computer in a lab or other public location. This is consistent with what you might experience with an online banking service.

However, you can now change the length of time your system can sit idle before it automatically times out. To do this, click on Options, located next to the Logout icon in the upper left corner. Under User Options Menu, click on Timeout and you will be able to set the System Timeout to log you out anywhere from 5 minutes to 180 minutes.

The following are possible reasons and their respective solutions for the error message:

  • Your date of birth on file at CCRI are incorrect. Contact the Office of Enrollment Services to determine the validity of your date of birth on file. The Office of Enrollment Services can be contacted by telephone at 825-2003 or by e-mail at webadmission@ccri.edu.

Why when I access the Internet am I taken to a web page other than my default home page appear?

A common example of this type of malicious program is “Internet Optimizer”. This program will redirect you to its own website when you attempt to access the Internet.

The Service Desk recommends all users install preventative measures against spyware, adware, parasites and viruses. These programs can essentially hijack your browser to other websites.

To Prevent Infection:

Ad-aware and SpyBot are simple to use tools for removing and preventing infection of spyware, adware and parasites including Internet Optimizer. Install at least one of these programs and run at least once to remove any items that they uncover. Such software can be found on: http://www.download.com

There are inherent risks with installing any new software onto your computer. Please check with your preferred expert for their recommendations before proceeding.

Solutions:

Remove file sharing programs and spyware. To get rid of spyware, visit http://www.lavasoft.com/ and download the Ad Aware program which you will find under Products and selecting Ad-Aware Personal. After downloading and installing the program, run it and have it search your computer system. Ask it to remove anything it finds, exit the program and reboot the computer system. However, note that many free file sharing programs might not function if the spyware programs are removed. Another solution is to run Windows XP System Restore, and restore your system back to a time before the file sharing software was installed. Also: In Windows go to the Start menu and select Settings. Open the Control Panel and choose Add/Remove Programs.

Look for Active Alert and Internet Optimizer. If these entries are there, select Change Remove for each one in turn. Follow the steps to remove the program.

Using a MAC, why am I getting username/password pair not found?

Please check to see the supported versions of your Internet browser and upgrade if necessary.

Please go to the MyCCRI login page http://myccri.ccri.edu and login from here rather than the College home page.

  • click on Safari in the menu bar
  • select Preferences
  • select Security
  • turn on: accept cookies only from sites you navigate to
