Registration for Prince Georges Community College summer classes will be held on Thursday, May 31. You must first preregister, get a student ID, a user name and password. Here’s how:
IF YOU HAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS: Go to http://www.pgcc.edu. Click Owl Link at top. On the next page, click on Workforce Development & Cont. Ed. Students. Next, click Enroll and Register for Courses. Next, click Create a student account. On the Personal Identification screen, complete all required fields (marked *); others are optional. Check the box at the bottom of the page to certify your identity. Click SUBMIT.
Keep http://www.pgcc.edu open and open your email in another window. You will see two separate emails; one has Username/ID, and the second has your temporary password. Keep the emails open. Go back to http://www.pgcc.edu, click MAIN MENU at the top; then click LOG IN using the Username/ID and the exact password from the emails.
The message “Your password has expired!” appears. Now reset your password to a new one — at least eight characters, including at least one capital letter, one lowercase letter and one number. No special characters! Save your student ID number, this username, and your password; you will need them every semester to register for classes. Need help? Lakeside Commons Computer Lab has mentors on Thursdays, 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Come well before May 31.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS OR ELECTRONIC DEVICE: Call Workforce Development, Continuing Education Customer Service 1-301-546-0159
Request a Student ID number. You must do this soon. Registration is busy. If needed, leave a voice mail with full name, address, phone number, date of birth.
When you have a Student ID number, call PGCC Help 1-301-546-0637. Give them your Student ID number and request a username and temporary password. Write down your username and temporary password exactly including capital and lowercase letters.
Save your student ID number, username and password. You will need them each semester to register. Detailed instructions for registration will be in a new Reporter article in May.
