We offer a free ride to campus from the Pensacola airport or bus depot beginning the day residence halls open and continuing through the arrival deadline. If you will need this service, submit a shuttle request or call 1-800-PCC-INFO at least 24 hours in advance to inform Admissions of the place and time of your arrival. If you’re a new student, submit a shuttle request through your Applicant Portal or contact your enrollment advisor.
When you arrive on campus, come to the Check-In Desk in the Administration Building. Here you pick up your Welcome Notice, PCC (ID) Card, technology user account information, and Registration Booklet. You will receive instructions on how to register your vehicle. You will then be able to go to your residence hall room. Students wearing name badges are available specifically to provide direction and answer questions, but any student will be happy to help you.
The Welcome Notice includes your room number, mailbox combination, faculty advisor, and work area (if you signed up for the work program).
If you have not already submitted necessary admissions and medical paperwork, verified your major of choice, and paid your school bill (pcci.edu/payments), your Welcome Notice will tell you how to fulfill any of these outstanding requirements before registration.
Your PCC Card serves as a campus access card to the residence halls and your room, dining facilities, the Sports Center, and other areas. After funds have been added to your PCC Card Account online or at one of the Add Value Machines located around campus, you can also use your PCC Card to make on-campus purchases.
Add Value Machines can be found in the following locations:
Only the person whose name appears on the card is authorized to use it, with the exception of picking up meals for an ill student. If you lose your card, go to the PCC Card Office (Academic Ctr. 1st floor) during office hours for a replacement (charged to your college account). On weekends or evenings if you need a replacement card you may get one from the Information Desk.
You will want to set up your on-campus wireless access as soon as possible using the instructions in your Registration Booklet. Once online, log on to Eagle’s Nest (PCC’s online student hub for information, including campus e-mail). At Check-In, you will receive your campus e-mail address.
If you require banking services but do not have your own bank account, Bank of America and Regions Bank offer an inexpensive package of student banking services, including no-cost checking accounts (no minimum balance required) and ATMs conveniently located in the Commons. Any ATM card may be used at these machines; however, there is usually a nominal transaction charge when using cards not issued by Bank of America or Regions. Bank of America representatives will be available to assist you if you choose to open a checking account when you arrive on campus. Since PCC is a direct-deposit employer, student workers need to have their own bank accounts.
