Registration for Prince Georges Community College 2018 fall classes is Tuesday, September 18. You will need a username and password to register. Please find that information from your previous enrollments, or as a new student, get it!
NEW TO RIDERWOOD? NEW TO CLASSES? To register for courses, 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 Personal Identification screen, complete all required fields (marked *). 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 e-mails; one has the Username/ID, and the second, your temporary password. Keep this e-mail open. Go back to http://www.pgcc.edu, click MAIN MENU at top; then click LOG IN using the Username/ID and exact password from e-mails.
A message “Your password has expired!” appears. Now reset your password to a new one — at least 8 characters, including at least one capital letter, one lowercase 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? The Lakeside Commons Computer Lab has mentors on Thursdays, 3:15 to 4:15 p.m. Come well before September 18!
NO EMAIL ADDRESS or electronic device:
• Call Workforce Development, Continuing Education Customer Service 1-301-546-0159, and request a Student ID number. You MUST do this soon. If the phone number is busy, leave a voice mail with your full name, address, phone number, date of birth.
• When you have a Student ID number, call PGCC Help 1-301-546-0637. Request a username and temporary password.
• WRITE DOWN the username and temporary password EXACTLY, including capital and lowercase letters.
Save your student ID number, username, and password for use each semester to register. Detailed instructions for registration will be in a new Reporter article in September.
