About the Committee
The Degrees and Certificates Committee is a subcommittee of the Educational Advisory Council (EAC). The committee's primary responsibility is to oversee the academic and program integrity of the college's degrees and certificates, including compliance with degree requirements mandated by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, the state system of higher education, and policies particular to PCC. The committee makes recommendations on issues relating to general education, basic competencies and course distribution as they impact degree, certificate, and course requirements. The committee oversees the college's residency and degree completion requirements and makes recommendations on requests for exceptions to approved policies where feasible.
