Technical Support

We strive to provide seamless technologies that are reliable, consistent and easy for every student to use. There are times, however, when technology breaks and we need to provide some additional assistance.

Below you will find helpful information on the most frequently asked questions for FDTC Technology.

What is my FDTC Email Address?

Your FDTC email address is the most important account you will receive at FDTC as it is the gateway to all of our systems. If you do not know your FDTC email address, use our FDTC Email Address Recovery Tool to have it sent to the personal email address associated with your student or staff record.

How do I set up my FDTC Email Account or change my password?

The first thing you’ll need when setting up your FDTC email account or changing your password is your FDTC email address. If you already have your FDTC email address, setting up your account and choosing a password is a breeze. Simply follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to the FDTC Recover Account Tool
  2. Enter your FDTC email address in the first box and complete the Security Code box displayed in the image in the second box, and then click the blue next box.
  3. Choose if you would like to receive a verification code by email, text or call.
    • If you choose Text or Call you will need to know the masked (***) phone number and enter it
    • Click, Email, Text or Call
  4. Enter a brand new password for your FDTC email account
    • Your password must be at least 8 characters, have upper and lower case letters, a number and a symbol.
  5. Your FDTC email account is now set up and ready to use! You will use this account and password to access all of FDTC’s computers and applications.
What if I no longer have access to the phone number or email addresses used for account verification?

We can reset your verification options for you by calling our HelpDesk at 843-661-8123 or by Submitting a FDTC HelpDesk Ticket.
