If you've previously setup your Pacer Account and now you can't login, you'll need to call or visit the Help Desk.

Visit the Help Desk in person with a valid USCA ID and we'll let you set your password on the spot.

Call in, email or visit without your USCA ID and we'll have to reset your account to a temporary password.  You'll then need to change it to something unique the next time you log into a campus computer.
