Guest Accounts for Five College Students
or Other non-MHC Students Registered for a Course or Courses

Revised: 05 August 2013

The "ella" learning management system at Mount Holyoke has been retired.

We are now using Moodle which may be found at

Five College students

The Moodle login uses the login credentials of your home institution.

It is not necessary to have an MHC guest account to log into our moodle server.

Unless arrangements have been made with the faculty member for the course, to gain access to the course, the registration information from your campus needs to be in our Registrar's system.

Exception:   if your course requires access to a computer system other than Moodle, you may need to get an MHC guest account. More information is here.

Other students

If you do not have a Five College account from Amherst, Hampshire, Smith, or UMass, you will need to have a one-semster MHC guest account.

A guest account requires that you are registered for a course and that you have provided the Registrar's office with a current email address.
