Information for Accepted Students

Welcome Accepted PA Students!

Please follow the steps below in order to set up your Pace Portal account. Once your account has been set up you will be able to make the deposit to secure your seat in the program. Please be sure to follow the steps as outlined below.

What is Pace Portal?

You will use Pace Portal to access information about Pace activities, events, and news. In addition, the Portal will give you access to your courses, accounts, financial aid, registration, grades, and much more! It is available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

How do I access my Pace Portal Account?

If you are a first time user and have never logged into your Pace Portal account, you will need to activate your account and set up your password first. You will also be asked to set up your secret questions which are helpful in the future if you have to change or reset your password. This username and password will be used for all your Pace accounts including the Portal, Email, Classes, Web File System, and ITS Helpdesk—so make it a strong one! Any future password changes will apply to all of these accounts.

Step 1: Find your Pace Portal Username

  1. Go to the Pace University Directory.
  2. Type your First and Last name in the Name textbox.
  3. Select Applicants in the Person Type textbox.
  4. Click Search.
  5. After receiving results, click View Details next to your name.
  6. Write down your Username. It will begin with your initials, followed by a sequence of numbers and a letter.

Note: If your name does not appear, you may also try typing only your Last Name in the Name textbox and select All Staff, Faculty, and Students in the Person Type textbox.

Step 2: Set-up a New Password

If you have never logged in, your password will be your initials from your first and last name (lower-case), followed by a hyphen, and then your date of birth in MMDDYY format. For example, if your name is John Smith, and you were born on January 3, 1990, your default password would be js-010390. If you are visiting Pace, the person who requested your account will have your initial password.

  1. Go to the Apps/Downloads/Account Management website.
  2. Click Account Activation (right-hand side).
  3. Click Begin Activation.
  4. Type your Pace Portal Username in the Username textbox.
  5. Type your Default Pace Portal Password in the Password textbox.
  6. Click Log In.
  7. Type your Default Pace Portal Password (Example: jd-010190).
  8. Type your New Pace Portal Password.
  9. Confirm your New Pace Portal Password.
  10. Click Change Password and then click Continue.
  11. Answer two different Security questions. (Answers are all case sensitive.)
  12. Click Save and then click Continue.
  13. Click Logout in the upper right hand corner.

Note: Once your password is reset, you CANNOT reset it again for another 24hrs. To create new passwords, see our Password Guidelines.

Step 3: Make your Tuition Deposit
