To register for a PACE course or program, students must have an email account from one of the external providers listed below. This eliminates PACE having access to the student’s password and is an added level of security against threats to student accounts. We are unable to accept registrations from any other providers. There are no exceptions to this login method. If a student does not have an account with one of the providers listed below, they will need to create one to use for their registration. All (except OSU) are free and easy to set up.

  • Google
  • Yahoo
  • Facebook
  • Microsoft (Hotmail, Outlook, Windows Live)

All courses must be completely paid for on the first day of the course. If payment is not received by the first day of the course, the student’s enrollment in the course will be canceled and access to the course will be denied until such time as the full balance is received by Professional and Continuing Education. See also Paying by Check Policy.



Registration will not be finalized until payment has been received.
