What is PAWS?


The PAWS portal provides a number of features to help you interact more effectively with your university or with colleagues at your institution, such as e-mail, course tools, and other features. Through PAWS, you will have access to e-mail, announcements and message boards, headlines, and more. Bobcats email is the official means of communication at GC and is accessed through the PAWS portal. CLICK HERE to learn more about all the services PAWS offers to Georgia College Students.

1. Go to http://paws.gcsu.edu

Click the PAWS Login Page link and click "Enter Secure Area".  To login to the PAWS system, you will need your GCID (see step 2 below) and your PIN (see step 3 below).

2. To identify your GCID, click the “Lookup GCID” button.  Enter the information requested and click “Get GCID Number.”  IMPORTANT:  If you receive an error message that says “No GCID was found,” please click your browser’s back button, and re-enter your information.  Pay close attention to the SSN field (asks for last FIVE digits) and the date of birth field (asks for MMDDYYYY format).  If you still receive this error, please contact our office at (478)445-2774.

3. Your PIN is your date of birth in MMDDYY format.  Enter your PIN in the field provided, then click login.  You will be prompted to confirm your PIN, and then set up a Security Question.  Complete this step and click “Submit” and you will be logged into the PAWS system. If you experience any difficulty with your PAWS login, please contact the Registrar's Office at (478) 445-6286.
