The Information Technology Services (ITS) office supports both academic and administrative areas with a wide range of hardware and software resources and technical personnel. The College is continually upgrading its technology infrastructure and campus servers.

Panola College has a high-speed fiber optic network connecting all major campus buildings, including the residence halls. The College’s main administrative information system is Jenzabar’s PX/POISE software. Students can access a number of web-based services through the PX/POISE CampusConnect system, including online registration, grades, transcripts and class schedules. Students have access to over 900 Internet-connected computers in various labs around campus. Wifi is available in all college buildings, campus apartments, and many outside areas of the campus.

The College is a member of the Northeast Texas Network Consortium (NETnet), a group of 12 colleges and universities in northeast Texas. NETnet provides the College with Internet service at 350 megabits per second, providing students, faculty and staff the bandwidth necessary to accomplish their goals.

Panola College participates in The Center for Digital Education (CDE) Survey. The CDE, in conjunction with the American Association of Community Colleges, conducts the Digital Community Colleges Survey, which examines and documents how community colleges have progressed in using information technology to deliver services to their students, faculty and staff. Presidents at nearly 1,000 community colleges across the United States are invited to participate in the survey. Panola College has placed in the TOP TEN small college category in 11 of the 12 times the survey has been conducted. In the most recent survey (2017-2018), the College placed seventh in the nation.
