Summer students must attend at least two of the three services each week at Campus Church. Contact the Seminary-Graduate Studies Office if you have questions about church attendance. Please help us by sitting in the front sections of the Crowne Centre, rather than the back and side sections.

Library Use

Students may use the PTS, PCC, Pensacola State College, and University of West Florida libraries for research. Also, you may bring your own reference books.

Students who access the Internet are responsible to view appropriate material only.

Biblical Principles

The Bible is the final authority for all things and the means by which God provides principles for living in a way that protects from harmful thinking and behavior. Scripture clearly teaches how Christians are to live. In light of the wonderful gift of salvation, we are to live our lives in active pursuit of a lifestyle that keeps us pure and clean before God with careful attention to avoiding anything that detracts from our relationship with Christ.

Titus 2:11–14

For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Romans 12:1–2

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

In light of these principles, PCC has adopted standards to promote an environment that is conducive to academic, social, and spiritual growth. Where the Bible directly addresses a matter, standards are set accordingly. However, since God’s Word does not mention every aspect of college life, biblical principles are followed and conservative expectations have been established to encourage right Christian living and to be a protection against doing wrong. By enrolling in Pensacola Christian College, each student personally accepts and agrees to follow the guidelines set forth in the Code of Conduct.

Code of Conduct

Personal Character

Each student is expected to act in a manner that reflects biblical values and to develop personal character traits that show maturity. Further, as a community of Christians, students should encourage and support others to live in a manner that pleases God. The following characteristics are representative of Scriptural standards that should be emulated.

Love for God's Word—There is no greater source for direction and encouragement than the Bible. PCC places God’s Word in the highest regard, and every student is urged to spend personal time in it regularly. (Josh. 1:8; Ps. 19:10; Ps. 119:97, 119:127, 119:165; Col. 3:16)

Respect for God, other people, and property—God deserves reverence and respect, and our lifestyle and worship should reflect the honor we owe Him. We are also commanded to show respect to those God has given to be in authority. Further, each person should be mindful about how he treats other people and their property. (1 Pet. 2:17, Prov. 9:10, Eccl. 12:13, Rom. 13:7, Phil. 2:3, Rom. 12:16–18, Eph. 6:5–9)

Kindness and consideration for others—Christians are to actively seek opportunities to show kindness to others. Common courtesy and politeness are qualities to be developed. PCC has historically been known as a friendly campus because its students promote these traits. Good sportsmanship is also expected in all athletic endeavors. (Eph. 4:32, Matt. 7:12, Luke 6:31, Phil. 2:4, 1 Thess. 5:15)

Compassion and Christian love—God’s great love for us is reflected when we act with genuine care and concern for others. The Bible teaches that this is the hallmark of a true disciple. (Eph. 5:2, Luke 10:25–37, Jude 22, 1 John 4:7–8, John 13:34–35)

Honesty and integrity—It is necessary that each student deal truthfully with others and maintain a reputation for choosing to do what is right. Without these traits, it is not possible to properly interact with other people or with God. (Ps. 25:21, Ps. 15:1–2, Prov. 12:22, 2 Cor. 8:21, Phil. 4:8, Prov. 11:3, Rom. 12:17–21, 2 Cor. 4:2, Matt. 5:37)

Discipline and self-control—Christians are to exercise control over their emotions and desires so that behavior is appropriate and right. This is accomplished as the Holy Spirit is allowed to guide every decision and direct each action. (Gal 5:16–26, Rom. 6:12–13, 1 Cor. 9:24–27)

Modesty and purity—Christian men and women are expected to maintain the highest moral standards as a reflection of God’s holiness and as a protection against the effects of sin. While much of today’s culture has abandoned these precepts, the biblical principles for behavior and dress are essential. (Ps. 51:9–10, 1 Tim. 2:9, 1 Cor. 6:19–20, 1 Pet. 3:3–4, Ps. 24:3–5, 1 Tim. 4:12)

Diligence—The ability to work hard is important for professional life and is a characteristic that the Bible encourages. Being available and willing to work with intelligent effort is necessary to further gospel endeavors and contribute as a citizen. (Prov. 13:4, Deut. 6:17, Prov. 22:29, Col. 3:23)

Responsibility—The Bible teaches that each person must give account for his actions; taking personal responsibility for one’s life is the beginning of real stewardship. Making it your duty to be reliable, so that others can depend upon you, is a mark of true maturity. (2 Cor. 5:10, 1 Cor. 4:2–4, Gal. 6:4–5)

Thankfulness—Beyond a polite gesture of gratitude, thankfulness displays a spirit of contentment along with the realization that God is the ultimate source of all good things and that He often uses people as the instruments of His blessing. (1 Thess. 5:18; Eph. 5:20; Col. 2:7; Ps. 92:1, 118:29)

Etiquette and manners—Mature and educated individuals know how to speak and act in an expected way according to what is appropriate for the setting. College life provides opportunities to learn and practice these skills. (1 Cor. 15:33, Col. 4:5–6, 1 Cor. 14:40)

Prohibited Activities

Each student accepts the responsibility to actively uphold the Code of Conduct and to refrain from any action that would be detrimental to spiritual growth, the safety or well-being of others, or that would impair the ability of others to follow the Code of Conduct. (1 Pet. 2:11, Rom. 14:13) For this reason, students who participate in illegal or prohibited activities or who build a reputation for involvement in these activities will be subject to discipline including but not limited to demerits, referral, retribution, suspension, or dismissal.

Use, possession, or association with alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs—As a protection against harmful effects and the controlling nature of these substances, Scripture teaches us to avoid them. In addition, state and federal law prohibits the unlawful sale, use, or possession of drugs and alcohol. (Prov. 23:31; Rom. 12:1; Prov. 20:1; 1 Cor. 6:19–20)

Pornography or sexual immorality—The Bible indicates that all sexual activity outside of marriage is sin. Therefore, the following is considered to be sexually immoral: fornication, adultery, homosexual behavior, or any other sexual perversion. Also, any involvement in pornography or sexual communications, including verbal, written, or electronic, is prohibited. (1 Cor. 6:9–10, 18–20, Matt. 5:28, Heb. 13:4, Rom. 1:26–27, Ps. 119:37, 1 John 2:16)

Dancing—The seductive nature and worldly music of most forms of dancing are contrary to biblical principles. PCC wants students to have a wholesome relationship with members of the opposite gender without the temptations that are often associated with dancing, so dancing is not permitted. (1 Tim. 4:12, 1 Cor. 7:1)

Profanity or obscenity—Inappropriate language must be avoided whether it be written, electronic, or verbal. (Eph. 4:29, Col. 3:8, James 5:12)

Harassment, abuse, and discrimination—The safety and well-being of students is of utmost importance. PCC does not tolerate hazing, physical or verbal abuse, coercion, stalking, intimidation, harassment (verbal or sexual), discrimination, or any other behavior that places the health and safety of other students in jeopardy. Students must avoid the use of divisive or inflammatory comments, symbols, or actions of any kind, even in jest. (Col. 3:8; 4:6; Eph. 4:29–32)

Gambling (including the lottery)—Christians are called to be good stewards of that which God has given. Gambling is rooted in greed and materialism and against the principles found in the Word of God. Therefore, students should not participate in any form of gambling. Using playing cards generally associated with gambling should be avoided, and visiting casinos can cause one’s testimony to be tarnished. (Prov. 13:11; Prov. 28:22)

Stealing—The Bible clearly teaches that stealing is wrong. Taking or using what does not belong to you without the owner’s consent is considered stealing. (Rom. 13: 8–10)

Witchcraft, séances, astrology, or any other satanic practices—Anything associated with these activities is in direct contradiction to biblical principles. (Gal. 5:19–21)

College Standards

The following positions have been formulated to give direction in matters that require discernment. While not trying to be unkind to those who have adopted different standards, the College has applied these guidelines in an effort to align with the spirit and intention of biblical principles and to reflect conservative values.

Men's Clothing and Appearance

The expectations for student dress are designed to reflect the principles of modesty, distinction, and appropriateness. All students, as well as the spouses of students, are expected to dress modestly, in conservative fashions, and with a level of propriety that encourages purity. It is considered immodest to wear clothing that is tight-fitting. Men and women should be distinctive in their appearance. For this reason, men are not to wear effeminate hairstyles or apparel.

Appropriateness in dress is related to the setting and activity. In this Christian college setting, care must be taken to avoid association with companies (Hollister, Abercrombie and Fitch, etc.), lifestyles, and trends that oppose Christian values, including gothic dress styles, tattoos, body piercings or ear piercings, and unnatural hair colors (e.g., pink, green, blue).

Other than pocket-sized logos, clothing may not have pictures or writing other than PCC attire.

Men are to be clean shaven (beards/mustaches are permitted only if worn prior to enrollment in the summer graduate program), with sideburns no lower than the middle of the ear. Hair must be neatly combed and tapered (no braids, extreme fads, or designs cut into the hair) and may not come over the ears, eyebrows, or collar.

Necklaces and earrings are not acceptable.

Appropriate Attire for Men

Professional/Church: Sharp, conservative styles that show appropriate reverence and respect are worn for all church services and Sunday meals.

  • Suit or sport coat

  • Swim trunks for beach and water park
  • Shorts/shirt to and from Swim Center and beach
  • Long pants to and from the water park
  • Ball caps worn properly, not backward or sideways

Women's Clothing and Appearance

The expectations for student dress are designed to reflect the principles of modesty, distinction, and appropriateness. All students, as well as the spouses of students, are expected to dress modestly, in conservative fashions, and with a level of propriety that encourages purity. It is considered immodest to wear clothing that is revealing or tight-fitting. Men and women should be distinctive in their appearance. For this reason, women are not to wear masculine hairstyles or pants.

Appropriateness in dress is related to the setting and activity. In this Christian college setting, care must be taken to avoid association with companies (Hollister, Abercrombie and Fitch, etc.), lifestyles, and trends that oppose Christian values, including gothic dress styles/nail polish, tattoos, body piercings, and unnatural hair colors (e.g., pink, green, blue).

Hemlines and slits should be no higher than the top of the knee—sitting or standing. Tops must cover the shoulders, and necklines should not reveal any hint of cleavage. Allow enough ease so that clothing is not tight. Undergarments are not to be seen. (Avoid oversized armholes, sheer material, and figure-hugging apparel.) Garments that are backless or revealing in any position are immodest.

Other than pocket-sized logos, clothing may not have pictures or writing other than PCC attire. Earrings/ear cuffs in the cartilage are not permitted, and no more than two piercings in an earlobe are allowed.

Appropriate Attire for Women

Professional/Church: Sharp, conservative styles that show appropriate reverence and respect are worn for all church services and Sunday meals.

  • Sun. dress or skirt with coordinating top
  • Dress shoes

Smart Casual: Apparel that is relaxed with a neat, conservative appearance for classes, chapel, all meals, Sun. (except for church and noon meal), and until 5 p.m.

  • Conservative swimsuit must fully cover the midriff (also wear T-shirt in water park)
  • Walking shorts and shirt over conservative swimsuit to and from beach, pool, West Campus, and sundeck
  • Ball caps worn properly, not backward or sideways

Music

Music has the potential to direct our thoughts and emotions, and it reflects our values and philosophies. The music we listen to can either affect us in a way that encourages biblical thinking and actions or in a way that promotes worldly ideals. While not all music must be religious or sacred, it is healthy for Christians to develop a conscience for music that honors God. In accordance with Philippians 4:8, acceptable music focuses on what is true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous, and praiseworthy. Such music builds an appreciation for beauty, does not desensitize us to worldly living, and can be capable of turning our hearts toward the things of Christ.

While there is a wide range of musical styles and artists, finding appropriate music requires discernment. Certain types of music that are typically not associated with sensual or inappropriate themes and are generally acceptable include classical and semi-classical, traditional and patriotic, concert and marching band, and hymns and choruses. Any music that promotes worldly values or associations in its lyrics or style should be avoided. Whether or not the lyrics are Christian, music in the style of jazz, rock, rap, R&B, pop, country, or contemporary Christian is prohibited and may not be in a student’s possession or use on or off campus.

Students are encouraged to use discernment when listening to music. Play it at times when it is not a distraction to others who are studying, and control volume as appropriate for the setting. As a matter of personal accountability, headphones and earbuds are not to be used.

Entertainment

To provide an atmosphere free from the distraction of prevalent worldly influences and to encourage academic focus, students may not watch television on campus. Movies are not permitted on or off campus (regardless of the movie’s rating) with the exception of PCC library resources.

Any media or form of entertainment including but not limited to books, magazines, apps, computer and video games, which contain violence, sensual or demonic themes, suggestive dress, profanity, or rock music are not permitted. Computer and video games rated above E-10 are not permitted.

Social Life

On-Campus Apartments

Graduate students may visit in on-campus staff apartments of those of the same gender.

Dating

Graduate students may date each other on or off campus without approved chaperones. Graduate students may date undergraduates if the undergraduate students are at least 20 years old or juniors. Graduate Assistants may not date students they teach or supervise. Graduate men may date undergraduate women on campus or off campus as long as an approved chaperone is present. Graduate women may date undergraduate men off campus without a chaperone. Graduate students may also date faculty/staff members on or off campus without chaperones, provided the faculty/staff member is not the student’s teacher.

Conduct between men and women should always be of such a nature that their testimony is above question—especially since we have high standards for undergraduate students. We ask that dating couples refrain from physical contact.

The classroom buildings are not considered appropriate places for dating.

Technology

PCC supplies a number of technology resources that provide you with information and communications ability. Information about how to set up personal user accounts and logins will be received at Check-In, and user guides are available on Eagle’s Nest. It is your responsibility to use technology sensibly in a way that protects your Christian testimony.

User Name and Passwords

Your user name, password, and other personal identification gives access to campus technology. Keep this information secure, and do not give it to anyone else under any circumstance; you are responsible for all activity, calls, interactions, and content associated with your user accounts.

On-Campus Telephone System

Residence hall students will be provided a telephone extension at check-in, which can be shared with family and friends.

Residence hall switchboard hours are 6:30 a.m.–11 p.m. From 11 p.m. to 6:30 a.m., if an emergency arises, family may call (850) 478-8496.

More information regarding charges and procedures for phone use will be provided upon arrival.

E-Mail and Voicemail

Check your e-mail and voicemail regularly. You are responsible for information and announcements distributed through these sources.

Personal Electronics

Personal computers, phones, notebooks, tablets, and other devices have become part of everyday life. You are responsible for the content of all files and media in keeping with the PCC Code of Conduct. Accordingly, you should protect the use of your devices by others and only access appropriate content.

Students are prohibited from electronic content rated teen, mature, or adult, and any content regardless of rating containing graphic violence, sensual or demonic themes, suggestive dress, foul language, or gambling. PCC reserves the right to check any electronic device if it is reported or suspected that e-mail messages, files, or media may be in violation of the policies and standards of the College. Devices may not be used to watch movies or TV.

Students may not have personal network equipment. These devices include, but are not limited to, hubs, switches, routers, repeaters, and bridges.

Internet and Social Media

PCC provides a filtered wireless system that provides safe Internet access for all students. If you inadvertently access an inappropriate site, please report the site to the system administrator at admin@students.pcci.edu. It is recommended that all computers connecting to the wireless system have current anti-virus software. For your convenience, the College provides a free copy of the Sophos anti-virus software on Eagle’s Nest.

The use of social media is permitted as long as it does not conflict with the standards and spirit of the College. Each student is expected to protect his testimony and to avoid any wrong or questionable associations. Students will be expected to take responsibility for all content posted in connection with their social media outlets, whether personally posted or submitted by others.

Faxes

Stateside faxes may be sent using your telephone authorization code at the library for the cost of the phone call. You can also send and receive faxes at the Business Office. International faxes can be sent only through the Business Office. For information about charges, see Eagle’s Nest.

To receive a fax, direct senders to use (850) 479-6577 and ask them to include your complete name to identify you as the recipient.

Skype®

PCC provides computers in the library for Skype communications with family and others from home. You may reserve 30-minute times at the Circulation Desk. Each individual or member of a group must sign in at the start of the session and out at the end. Please check at the Circulation Desk for availability and other details regarding this free service.

Appropriate and Ethical Use

Misuse of technology is a serious infraction and can result in revocation of access as well as disciplinary action. Users must never attempt to access inappropriate material (such as pornography); make efforts to bypass, modify, or disable filters or restraints established by network or account administrators; attempt to gain a higher level of access to the system than authorized; or access or modify another individual’s account.

It is also considered a misuse of privileges to send messages with vulgar, harassing, obscene, pornographic, or threatening content, or to send chain letters or group mailings for business endeavors, personal agendas, or political reasons.

Students are responsible for adhering to local, state, federal, copyright, and international laws. While PCC cannot be held responsible for the actions of individual users, we will make every effort to ensure compliance and will provide any information required by authorities. We reserve the right to monitor all activity, incoming or outgoing, on the College’s network, accounts, and on all internally linked computers.

Copyright laws and licensing agreements govern the computer software on the resources at PCC. Under United States copyright laws, no person may duplicate or distribute a work without the express permission of the author(s). (Commercial software vendors do not generally grant permission to duplicate their products; however, there are two categories of software that do allow copying and distribution of the product: public domain software and shareware.) PCC supports these laws and agreements.

Students with access to PCC computer resources must adhere to copyright laws and licensing agreements as well as to the following:

  • It is unlawful for any student to make copies of computer software owned by the College.
  • Any program designated by the author(s) as shareware may be freely copied and distributed according to the express permission of the author(s). If a student continues to use a program, he is expected to register that program with the author(s) by paying a fee. Students continuing to use unregistered shareware products may be in violation of United States copyright law.
  • It is wrong to tamper with someone else’s computer. If you have permission to use a computer, leave everything the way you found it.

Textbooks

Payments for book purchases are not handled through the Business Office; therefore, students should plan to pay for these purchases separately from tuition and fee payments.

A complete textbook list and course information sheets are available from the Seminary-Graduate Studies Office.
