Getting Started

Student Workspace

CCA's institutional Mural account is organized into different Workspaces. For academic work, these are divided into CCA's four academic divisions. There is also a Student Workspace for individual users and student organizations. Click here to join the student workspace. If you do not already have an account, this link will prompt you to create one. You will be added to divisional workspaces if and when you are invited by an instructor.

Activate your account

The first time you are provided an invitation to use Mural, you will be prompted to create a Mural account using your CCA email address. Once you have an active account, you can create your own Boards or Private Rooms for your creative or academic projects.

If you have not been invited to create an account, you can email or submit a ticket for an invitation link.

Invitation from instructors

Instructors may direct you to a specific Board or to a Private Room designated for your course through an invitation link.
