Online Registration Help

Here are a few frequently asked questions for our online registration portal:

How do I sign in as a student?
There are three options to sign in as a student.

  1. If you already have a PacificNet ID, do not use the option on the left, register like you are a new user.
  2. If you are a new user, then you need to register for a new account using the option on the right. You will be emailed a username and temporary password to use for our registration portal (
  3. Once you receive the email with your usename and temporary password, you will use the option in the middle to sign in.

I am a current Pacific student, but I am receiving a "validation error" when trying to login through Canvas. How do I resolve this?
University College registration is separate from the University of the Pacific's registration. Please use the third column that states: "I am a new user.." You may still use your student pacific email address. New login information will be sent to the email address you provided.
