Getting Academic Help
Faculty, Chairs, and Deans
Faculty members are available to answer any academic questions during their posted office hours or by appointment, except for midterm and final exam weeks.
Academic chairs and deans are also available to help you. Make an appointment through the chair’s secretary or submit an Academic Information Request form on Eagle’s Nest.
The Academic Advising Office (Academic Ctr. 1st floor) is available to help students develop effective study habits, test-taking strategies, time-management skills, and other skills that contribute to general academic success.
If you would like extra academic help, Eagle’s Nest lists available tutors.
Writing Support Services
Freshmen and sophomores may benefit from the free writing assistance provided by Writing Support Services. Schedule an appointment on Eagle’s Nest.
PCC’s standard for appropriate style and form for class papers is found in Kate Turabian’s A Manual for Writers (8th edition). Eagle’s Nest gives helpful information to simplify some of Turabian’s instructions.
Those who type papers for other students are expected to reproduce the text verbatim. Corrections, whether grammatical, spelling, or otherwise, should be done solely by the author. Students should not ask office personnel to do typing for them.
