PAC Account Administration

Account creation, deletion and management of privileges for PAC, the University's human resources system.

Also known as PAC Access Request or MSS Access Request.

To become an PAC (People at Columbia) application user or to make a change your existing role (and corresponding accesses) in PAC, please fill out the PAC access request form. The PAC Security Team will grant access after receiving the appropriate approvals from the requestor’s manager and the departmental access approvers.

Once the Security Team receives all approvals, you will receive your PAC account user ID (or your accesses will be updated) within two business days.

A handbook is available which is designed to assist you in understanding the various roles for PAC. You can access the Handbook here.


CUIT can only administer access after receiving all approvals, we recommend contacting your manager to confirm they have approved. Once all approvals are received by CUIT, your ID will be administered within two business days.
