Your first technology stop at Pensacola State College should be SpyGlass. Linked from the top of all pages on the http://pensacolastate.edu website, SpyGlass is the college’s information system for students. SpyGlass contains your college records, schedule information, financial aid and fee payment information, address and phone number for us to reach you and much more.
SpyGlass for Student Information
The home page of SpyGlass provides your student number, email address and library number which are all very important to your success as a student at PSC… so start memorizing that information as soon as possible.
You can login to SpyGlass the first time using your SSN and PIN. The initial PIN is the 2 digit month and 2 digit year of your birthday. On your first login, you will be required to setup security questions and establish a new PIN. Your new PIN must be at least 4 characters, can be up to 10 in any combination of alpha and numeric. Once you have logged in and recorded your student ID #, you should begin the process of memorizing it and using it to login for subsequent sessions.
Printing and Copying
Your Student ID# is also used to access copiers and printing throughout the college campuses. It is encoded on the magnetic stripe of your ID Card, but can also be typed in at the copier keypad to release print jobs and to make copies in any of the computer labs across all campuses.
PirateMail is the college’s preferred and most widely used form of communication. PirateMail is also linked at the top of every page at http://pensacolastate.edu and you should login regularly to receive information about college activities and hear from your instructors and college administrators about items requiring your attention.
Your email address used to access PirateMail can be found on the home page of SpyGlass and the initial password is LoginYYYYMMDD! – that is the entire word Login with capital L, your entire birthday starting with the 4 digit year and an exclamation point at the end. The exclamation point IS a part of the password.
Computers for student use
The same username and password used to access PirateMail will be used to login to any computer on campus, and to the campus wireless network, as well as many other sites used at Pensacola State College. Computers are available for student use at Academic labs and libraries on each campus.
Your password for PirateMail and computer access can be self-reset at https://resetpw.pensacolastate.edu. You will need to setup a security profile in order to use this self-reset system. Do this as soon as possible – and please note, this is a different security profile than what is used for SpyGlass and the passwords will remain separate.
If you should have any problems with the steps or information above, please give us a call at the Student Helpdesk 850-471-4534 and firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to help.
