Student Accounts

PantherNet ID

The PantherNet ID is a unique account name that identifies you as a member of the PVAMU community, with access to the Prairie View A&M University network of computing resources and services. Your PantherNet ID is a permanent and visible part of your PVAMU identity; it is your name before the @ in your PVAMU email address. Your PantherNet ID will be with you throughout your affiliation with PVAMU.

Students are automatically sent a PantherNet ID and password as soon as their admission to PVAMU is complete. The account is good for the duration of your academic degree or diploma plan.

Panthertracks ID and PIN

Your User ID (Student ID) is a 9-character ID that is sent to you within your acceptance letter. Your initial PIN is sent to you in a secondary letter. If you do not know your ID it can be obtained by visiting your academic department with your picture ID or by contacting Business Affairs Information Resource at (936) 261-9350. If you need assistance with your PIN, call the IT Help Desk at (936) 261-2525.

Panthertracks Self Service Password Reset

When logging in to Panthertracks, you will be asked to select and provide answers to 2 pre-defined questions from a list. All of your answers will need to be a minimum of 8 characters. After you do this, should you forget your PIN, you will be able to immediately reset it yourself by answering these questions, without calling the IT Help Desk.

In order for this new feature to work, it is important that you make your answers to these questions memorable but difficult to guess. To do this you should come up with a strategy that will prevent people good at making educated guesses from determining your answers.
