Welcome Letter

Dear Student,

Welcome to Pennsylvania Highlands Community College’s Online Courses!  This letter includes important information for students enrolled in online courses at Pennsylvania Highlands Community College.

You will notice that online learning is quite different than classroom learning because the responsibility lies with you, the student.  Taking an online course can be challenging and time-consuming.  However, you will find this style of learning will suit your needs, if you can work independently and use good time management skills.

You should plan to spend several hours on your course a few times each week!  Be sure to pay close attention to deadlines, instructions, announcements and emails from your instructor.


  • Purchase the book you will need for your class by visiting or contacting the College Bookstore at 814.262.6453.

  • Review the Pennsylvania Highlands’ Distance Education website for the necessary Technical Requirements on the Technical Requirements page.

  • Follow the instructions on myPEAK found under the Student tab underneath the Jenzabar eLearning page.

  • If you have trouble logging in please see the Help section on the myPEAK portal or contact the Pennsylvania Highlands IT Help Desk at 814.262.6470 or email them at helpdesk@pennhighlands.edu.

You will have access to your online class beginning at 10:00 a.m. on the first day of the term.  Once you have entered your online course in Jenzabar eLearning on myPEAK, your instructor will have an announcement with details on the next steps to take. 

Once again, I welcome you to Pennsylvania Highlands Community College and wish you a great semester!
