Dual Enrollment

On July 15th, The Virginia Community College System launched a new portal for Patrick Henry students and employees. This new myPHCC is more secure, provides more customization and is compatible with all modern browsers.

The new system incorporates a new password scheme and more complex user authentication in order to keep your information safe from hackers.

Your new password must be:

  • Greater than seven characters but can be up to 32 characters in length
  • Must contain at least one upper case letter
  • Must contain at least one lower case letter
  • Must contain at least one numeric digit
  • Must contain at least one special character

You must create five challenge questions with answers. If you forget your password you must successfully answer three of those challenge questions.

We have prepared some simple to follow instructions on how to establish your myPHCCC account.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I am a former student, but still use the VCCS email. The system will not allow me to check my email.

A: Usually this means that your password does not match the new scheme. You should change your password by clicking the "Forgot Password". Wait 15 minutes and then try again. Once you have changed your password you can use the direct link to get to email which is http://mail.email.vccs.edu.

 

Q: I have changed my password but I get an "Internal Server Error" everytime I try to login. 

A: The system is stuck in a loop which the developers are working to resolve. Close all of your browser windows and try again. In some instances you will need to reboot your computer.

 

Q: I logged out of BlackBoard and myPHCC just keeps saying "Authenticating".

A: The system is stuck in a loop which the developers are working to resolve. Close all of your browser windows and try again. In some instances you will need to reboot your computer.

 
{We will continue to add new items to this list as we become aware of issues.}

Students who live within PHCC’s service region (Martinsville, Henry County, Franklin County and Patrick County) are required to take all proctored tests on campus or at the Franklin or Patrick County Site. Students living outside the Martinsville and Henry County area must complete a Student-Proctor Agreement form and submit to the Testing Center for approval.

Proctor Requirement – PHCC must be able to verify proctor’s employment and position within an organization. We reserve the right to decline requests for proctors for any reason. Proctors……..
* MUST be a community college or university testing center, an education administrator,  full-time college or university faculty member or a professional librarian
      - Military students may use an educational officer, or any commissioned officer of higher rank
* IF a student has a legitimate reason they are not able to use one of the above, the student may suggest an alternative proctor (preferably an educator). The proctor would have to be approved by both the Testing Center and Instructor before testing material can be sent.
* CANNOT be an employee, someone with whom you work, athletic coach, or student worker
* CANNOT be a family member, resident at the same address as the student, a friend, nor neighbor

Procedures:
* The student secures a Student Proctor Agreement form and returns the completed form (filled out and signed by both student and proctor) to PHCC Testing Center in the Learning Resource Center. Forms must be submitted to the Testing Center at least 1 week prior to taking their test.
* Upon approval, all tests/passwords will be sent directly to the Proctor when received from instructor.
* The proctor will administer the exams in a quiet and secure environment, insuring the testing instructions are followed. Students are not allowed books, notes, or calculators unless otherwise instructed. For online tests, the student logs in to their course and the proctor is to enter the password. Under no circumstance is the student allowed access to the Password.
* The test proctor maintains the integrity of the tests at all times. Students are only allowed access to tests at the time of administration. No photocopies allowed. Students are not allowed any electronic device (cell phones, IPODS, BlackBerry, etc.), nor headphones while taking tests.
* If there is a problem while taking a computer exam, it is the proctor’s responsibility to immediately notify the instructor either by phone or email informing the instructor of the problem. If this is not done, the student may not be able to retake the exam.
* The proctor is responsible for mailing the original paper test(s) back to the Testing Center if required.
* Any fees for proctoring are solely the responsibility of the student and the student is responsible for reimbursement of mailing costs where necessary.
