PCC administration and faculty constantly strive to provide an education that will fully prepare you for your chosen field and exceed the quality of preparation required by your future employers. You will be required to complete a minimum of 120 credit hours to earn a four-year degree, with a “C-” required in all courses in your major field and a “B-” required in some specific courses. Degree requirements include competencies in general education core classes (Bible, English, history, science, mathematics, social sciences, and speech) as well as specialized courses for your major.
The academic experience of our faculty, including advanced degrees and in-field experience, are also carefully considered to provide you with the best education possible. Our faculty members are spiritually committed and demonstrate a strong desire to help students excel academically. Students find that PCC’s caring faculty members are a constant encouragement for their academic progress.
Excellent library facilities are available to PCC students, including a 6-story library complex with over 300,000 volumes, along with on-line resources. Specialized lab and learning resources abound across campus to serve needs of various fields of study.
PCC’s academic standards can be reviewed in detail on our Academic Info page. We are pleased that our students have demonstrated a level of academic quality that has been recognized by many fine graduate schools. Though transfer of credit and acceptance at graduate school depend upon personal academic achievement and requirements of individual institutions, many graduates continue their education at some of America’s finest colleges and universities.
