  1. Once you connect it should redirect you to the portal. If you do not connect to the portal then you'll need to open Chrome and navigate to https://onboard.mendocino.edu
  2. Agree to the Terms of Service
  3. Select 'Staff' or 'Student'
  4. Log in with your college credentials
    1. Microsoft OR Google

      2. Your school e-mail password
  5. Name your device - This is specifically for you to know what you have connected to the college wifi.

  6. Finalize your config
    1. Windows: you'll need to install an exe
