Valencia Atlas Password and Personal Identification Number (PIN)
A Personal Identification Number (PIN) is a unique password that allows you to access your student records and register for classes electronically. When you establish your Valencia Atlas account, you will be asked to select an alpha-numeric password that will serve as your PIN each time you log in.
Creating a unique PIN will help provide increased security for your student records. You mustn’t forget your PIN since you must enter it every time you log in to Atlas.
If you do forget your PIN, you should follow the directions on the myAtlas home page to re-set your PIN. Your PIN should be kept secure; you should not share it with anyone.
Valencia College Atlas and student email accounts
As an admitted Valencia student, you will be assigned an email account through Atlas; this will be the primary and official form of communication from Valencia to you.
Atlas email is the official form of communication from Valencia College assigned to students. Atlas email accounts follow the format: (first initial) (last name) (given number if there is more than one person in Atlas with the same first initial and last name) @mail.valenciacollege.edu. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org.
You should not forward your Atlas email as many Internet service providers filter Atlas email as SPAM, and you may not receive all college communications.
Official Valencia notices and helpful information will be provided to you through your Atlas email, individual course sites, and throughout Atlas as general information.
