Getting Started - Craete a Login Account for the PCC Portal

Each faculty, staff and manager that has a network ID can be set up with a login for the new content management system portal. There are many features to help you publish material for your course, department or to add news or events on the web site, and you can now do this from any browser, on campus or off.

Select Staff Services on the main navigation bar of the web site.

  • You will need to have your network login (which is also usually the same as your email account name without the or usually first initial, middle initial, last name).
    Note: If you don't have a network login you will need to get one from MIS in C145

Note: If you are a new hire and not in the Human Resources database yet, you may get a message that your information was not found. The system will then prompt you fill in information and will send it to the Web Producer who will followup with you up once you are in the system.

3.     Once your network ID is checked, the set up will ask for your info.

  • Password of your choice. Repeat it to confirm you typed it as intended.
  • Security Question and Answer: Pick from the list of questions, one that you will easily be able to supply the answer to later if you ever forget the password and you need to have it reissued. Carefully type your answer. It is case sensitive. If you use capitals, you must enter it the same later.
  • Email: You are providing the email address that you want your password sent to right now and later, if you forget it.
  1. Return to the login and this time enter your username and the password you chose in the previous step.
