How does testing work?

All tests are completed online through Canvas, PCC’s online learning management system, and may be proctored by a remote online proctor or approved in-person proctor. There is no charge to use remote proctoring.

What are the computer requirements?

If you will be using online proctoring, you need to take your tests and exams using a PC or Mac desktop computer, laptop, iPad, or Chromebook. A webcam and microphone are required. Cell phones cannot be used.

Do I need a proctor?

Yes, a proctor is required for online classes. Online proctoring is our preferred proctoring method for tests and exams. However, if you choose to use a live proctor, there is a $10 proctor verification fee, and the proctor must be approved. The proctor must be a member of your local church staff or the staff of a Christian school. Relatives, peers, or other students enrolled in online courses are not allowed to be proctors. Your proctor should be available throughout the term to proctor your tests, and you will need to plan your testing times around your proctor’s schedule.

What if I need help deciding which courses to take?

An academic advisor would be happy to help you choose courses that will best fit your course of study.

Is PCC accredited?

Yes, Pensacola Christian College is accredited by TRACS. Students planning to transfer credits to another institution are responsible to confirm whether courses meet the institutional and specific degree requirements of the transfer institution.

What can I expect when taking online courses?

You’ll access your courses online through Canvas, an online learning management system where you can watch course videos, turn in assignments, take quizzes and tests, and communicate with other students, your teacher, and the Online Learning Office. Online courses have the same lectures and course requirements as on-campus college courses. For a 3-credit course, plan to spend about 9 hours a week watching course lectures, studying, and completing course assignments. Plan 6 hours weekly for 2-credit courses and 12 hours weekly for 4-credit courses.

What if I decide to drop a course?

You’ll need to notify us of your request in writing by emailing
