Residence hall rooms are carpeted, air-conditioned, and have adjoining bath. No linens or pillows are furnished. During fall/spring semesters, rooms are double occupancy.
During the summer, residence hall accommodations are available on campus for single students and married couples with no children. During summer sessions nonstudent spouses may live in the residence halls if space is available and pay only room and board for sessions they stay.
During one-week modules, rooms are double occupancy; nonstudent spouses may also stay. Contact Admissions Department for details.
The center of spiritual vibrancy is the warm local church atmosphere of Campus Church, which operates in the spirit of an independent Baptist church. The pastor and other church staff acquaint students with the workings of a separated, Bible-believing church and encourage them in their worship and service for the Lord.
Faculty, staff, and their families—as well as many local townspeople—join the college students in Sunday school, Sunday morning and evening, and Wednesday evening services. College students that have moved to the area to attend PCC are not considered permanent residents and are therefore expected to attend all the services of Campus Church.
College chapel meets four times each week and Seminary chapel once a week. Each year, outstanding evangelists, pastors, and missionaries preach in chapel.
The Placement Office assists graduates in finding full-time employment. The office maintains a list of job opportunities and will gather information to aid the job search. The job resource library contains job and career resource material available for student review.
Standards of Conduct
Pensacola Theological Seminary and Pensacola Christian College are committed to the highest standards of Christian conduct and hold that the Bible—the infallible, divine Word of God—provides the basis for that conduct. Salvation by faith in Christ is the initial step in the Christian life, followed by spiritual growth into the image of Christ (Rom. 8:29), which is the work of the Holy Spirit (2 Cor. 3:18). The Holy Spirit makes the Christian conscious of the biblical demands for a holy life which fulfills God’s moral law (Heb. 10:15–16) and high law of love (Matt. 22:37–39; Rom. 13:8–10; Gal. 5:14). The result is a life consecrated unto God and separated from the world (James 1:27).
The Seminary and College have therefore established biblical standards of conduct in order to provide an environment conducive to spiritual growth. We contend that moral conviction, self-discipline, and enthusiasm for Christian witnessing are as important as academic excellence.
The standards of conduct expected of students at PTS and PCC are based on the following biblical imperatives. All the activities of the Christian must be subordinated to the glory of God, Who indwells us (1 Cor. 6:19–20). The Christian must endeavor to avoid practices that cause loss of sensitivity to spiritual needs of the world (1 Cor. 8:9, 12–13; 10:32) and loss of the Christian’s physical, mental, or spiritual well-being (1 Cor. 9:27). In today’s society this includes avoiding such practices as gambling, dancing, profanity, obscenity, abuse of drugs, use of tobacco and alcohol, and attendance at movie theaters. Under no circumstances will pornography, premarital or extramarital sex, homosexuality, or other sexual perversions be tolerated. We believe that every student should demonstrate loyalty to the Lord Jesus Christ in every area of life. Jesus Christ is our example and every student should bring his behavior into conformity to Him.
A student information booklet is sent in May to each summer student listing examples of policies involving attire and standards of conduct. Other policies applying to various areas of student life on campus and in residence halls are in the Seminary and Graduate Information Book and will be given out upon arrival.
Prospective students are welcome to call the Seminary-Graduate Studies Office for answers to specific questions regarding student life (1-877-PTS-GRAD [1-877-787-4723]) or to visit overnight. Academic regulations are found under Admission Requirements.
Any student has the opportunity to appeal matters that affect student conduct violations. If necessary, the Appeals Committee in the Student Care Services Office will review facts related to the case and make a final determination. The Appeals Committee is composed of a student, a faculty representative, and a representative from Student Life. The College Office maintains case records in the student’s file.
