What is My Account Information?

Prairie State College uses a single sign-on account for all users. This means that one username and password is used for the main applications that you'll use on campus. You will be notified of your username and password, but required to change your password when you login for the first time. You will also be required to change your password at least every 6 months.

Username: Your username is the first initial of your first name and your full last name, and possibly sequencing numbers. (Example: jdoe2356)

Password: Your default password is your initials plus your PSC ID number.
