What you will need:

  • A computer running either Windows or MacOS*
  • The Chrome web browser (visit https://www.google.com/chrome/ if you do not already have this installed)
  • Your OCSD student email address and password

*Note: this guide applies to Windows and MacOS. For chromebooks see: https://support.google.com/chromebook/answer/1059242?hl=en

1. First open the Chrome browser:

2. Add a new user so that you can switch between using your OCSD user for school related activities and using your personal user for non school related activities:

3. Give the new user a descriptive name and select "Add":

4. Now you can sync your school account to this Chrome user (make sure you are syncing the user you created in the previous step):

5. Enter your school email and password as prompted:

6. Select "Continue" to verify your account, then select "Link data":


7. Finally, select "Yes, I'm in" to sync your account:

Now your bookmarks, extensions, settings, etc. will apply to this user and you can access resources similarly to when you are logged into a school Chromebook.
