During the fall and spring semesters, residence hall accommodations are only available for single students.

Residence hall rooms are single occupancy for the summer but may have multiple occupants during the fall and spring semesters.

The 4.00 grading system below is used for all students.

Grade Grade Points Per Hour
A (Excellent) 4
B (Good) 3
C (Passing) 2
D (Unsatisfactory) 1
F (Failing) 0

If you don’t earn a passing grade, you are able to repeat the course. All grades earned become part of your permanent record and will show on any PCC transcript. However, when a course is repeated, the highest grade you earned for that course will be used in computing your grade point average. (Note: Credit hours are only counted once for repeated courses.) For more details, see grading system.
