    What’s this about?

    One of the highest priorities of Pacific College is to ensure that students are equipped with all of the necessary tools to be successful. This article will aid you in becoming acquainted with our various IT systems, and show you how to access everything.  

    This process will take between 15-20 minutes to complete.

    1) StudentHub

    StudentHub is where you can access all of the college’s online services in one convenient interface. You can reach Studenthub by going to https://studenthub.pacificcollege.edu/  



    2) Email

    You can access your Pacific College email from the blue “School Email” icon in StudentHub, or by navigating to http://webmail.pacificcollege.edu

    Next, you’ll be taken to the login screen shown below. To log in, you’ll have to use your Pacific College email address and temporary password given to you by [email protected] email.

    3) Setting up your login password

    Before you can access your Pacific College email and any other systems, you will need to set up your password as well as provide a secondary email and/ or phone number. Please follow the steps below.

      • Click on the "Set it up now" link next to the "Authentication Email is not configured" text.


      Click to Zoom


      • Next enter in your personal email address then click the "email me" button.

      Click to Zoom


      • From here you can either add a phone number (optional) or click the finish button.


      Click to Zoom


      • Once completed, you are done with this step. Your new password will be used to access all Pacific College systems.


      4) Office365 Home Page

      The email login process is the same as logging into MyPCOM. Once logged in, click on the “outlook” icon to access your Pacific College email. Upon your first login, you will be asked to select your time zone. 

      Email Forwarding

      It is critical to your success that you receive important notifications from the college. For this reason, your Pacific College emails are being forwarded to your personal email address. Although we do not recommend you do this, you can unlink your personal email address from your Pacific College email address by following the steps here. Please note that you are fully responsible for any missed emails/ official college communication. 

      Want the newest version of Microsoft Office for free? Done.

      During your studies, you will most likely need applications within the Microsoft Office suite. If you already have the suite, you need to do nothing more. However, if you don’t have it, or have an old version and would like to use the new one click here and follow the installation instructions.

      5) Student Portal

      The student portal is where you register for classes, view your course schedule, view final grades, view your ledger, make payments, view attendance, and more. 

      You can reach the portal by clicking on the link in MyPCOM, or by going to https://portal.pacificcollege.edu

      Once there, click on the login button on the top right, and select the “Student Portal Homepage”. On the login screen, you'll need to use your username only (e.g. jdoe). Do not use your full Pacific College email. 

      6) How to contact us

      7) The eLearning platform
