Orientation and Account Activation

Each year, students need to complete an online orientation on any computer at a Computer Resource Center or PCC library to establish a lab login. This is the same login and password students will use for GoPrint printing. Only currently enrolled students are eligible to take the orientation and create a login.

Each term, students will need to re-activate their accounts using the "Update Account" button on the screen. Once activated, the CRC account is valid for the CRC and library at any PCC campus for the duration of the term.

Working at the Cascade CRC

Each term, the Cascade CRC hires Lab Assistants to help in the CRC and other computer labs around campus. We need people with good customer service skills as well as knowledge of the computer programs and systems (MyPCC, D2L, etc.) in use here at PCC. If you are interested in working with us, print the application form and return it to the CRC before the end of any term. We also accept applications for work study students throughout the term. The PCC Financial Aid web site has information on the Federal Work-Study Program.
