Student Perspective

At PCC you can push your personal limits. Teachers had the flexibility of allowing me to go the extra mile; if I wanted to think completely out of the box and go the extra mile, they wouldn’t stop me. They let you think. They empower you.

Top FAQs

If I study online, will I have to watch lectures live?

While you’ll get the same full-length lectures as on-campus students, they’re prerecorded in-classroom so you can fit them around your schedule. Every lecture will be available 24/7 on your easy-to-use online dashboard.

Can I transfer credits from somewhere else?

Up to 3 hours of approved graduate credit can be transferred prior to starting your Master of Business Administration.

Can I take a semester off between classes?

Feel free to take semesters off when you need to! If you take off 12 months or more between classes, though, you’ll be considered a reenrolling student and need to reapply. Also keep in mind you have 7 years to complete your degree from the date you start.
