About Student E-mail

Microsoft Office 365 for education is here!

Pine Technical College is proud to present Office 365 for education — including e-mail, instant messaging, group video and voice chat, and online document viewing and editing. With Office 365, students, faculty, and staff are able to access the same great Office 365 tools businesses around the world use every day including:

E-mail and Calendars

 - Cloud-based email and calendars powered by Microsoft Exchange Online
 - 25 GB storage per user

Web Conferencing

 - Rich online meetings with audio and video, desktop sharing, and virtual whiteboard
 - Excellent for distance learning

Office Web Apps

 - Create and edit Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft OneNote documents using your favorite web browser.

With Office 365, you have two separate accounts

Office 365 account

E-mail: You will continue to use Microsoft Outlook Web App or Microsoft Outlook to view and send e-mail from your school account, but you will sign in at https://www.outlook.com/go.pinetech.edu using the same user name and password. Please note: In Office 365 you will not see our logo, but Pine Technical College still administers this account.

File Sharing: PTC will use Microsoft SharePoint Online for sharing files and Microsoft Office Web Apps for creating and reading documents.

Instant Messaging and Online Meetings: PTC will use Microsoft Lync Online for both instant messaging and online meetings.

Personal Microsoft account

Your personal account will give you access to all existing SkyDrive content, Messenger, and other Microsoft services. You will use the same user name and password that was used to access Live@edu. Note that Pine Technical College no longer administers this account. As a result, we cannot reset the password for you. Use https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx to reset the password for your personal account after the upgrade.

 - Sign into SkyDrive using your Live@edu user name and password
 - Bookmark SkyDrive: https://skydrive.live.com

If you use Internet Explorer 7 or an earlier version...

If you use Internet Explorer 7 or an earlier version, you will need to upgrade to a newer version of Internet Explorer. If you use Microsoft Outlook to read your e-mail and use Microsoft Office 2003 or earlier, you will need to upgrade to Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 to continue using Outlook. For more information about the upgrade, see the Checklist for users.

"So, what's my Email address and password?”

Sample e-mail addresses for PTC students:
 - John Smith jsmith@go.pinetech.edu  
 -
Linda Olson lolson@go.pinetech.edu

Your password is the same as the one you currently use to access campus computers.
