Create a User Account and Login


Pellissippi State Students
After clicking the 'Apply Now' button, the software will prompt you to login using your normal PSCC username and password.  You do not need to create a new username or password.  Basic profile data about you such as your name, DOB, major, GPA, etc. will be automatically populated from the PSCC student information system.  This information is view-only and cannot be edited in the software directly.  Any changes that need to be made must be made by emailing the TnCIS office at tncis@pstcc.edu.
 
  1. Find the program to which you wish to apply and click the ‘Apply Now’ button from that page.
  2. You will be asked if you already have login credentials for the software.  You should answer that yes, you have PSCC login credentials.
  3. Log in with your normal PSCC username and password.  You do not need to create a new username or password.
  4. Select the term in which you wish to go abroad.
  5. You will be presented with the various elements of the application that are required for the program to which you are applying.  Complete each item until you have a check mark next to every item.  Then click the ‘Submit Application’ button at the top of the page.  You do not have to complete the entire application all at once.  You can complete part or all of each element and save for future use.  Once you have a check mark for a particular item, if you log out of the software, you will not lose what you have already done.
Please Note: If you have already started an application and wish to return to view it again or continue to work on it, you can merely click on the Pellissippi User Login link at the top right of the main webpage and log in.  Your application page will show all applications you have previously started and you can continue to work on them from there.
