group of international students

International Panther Tracks is a first term guide that includes interactive webpages designed to help you get the information you need to succeed at PCC. Each track will guide you through campus resources, inform you of deadlines and dates you’ll need to know and help you better understand the U.S. educational system and college life.

Getting Started

Before you start here are a few things you should know:

  • If you haven't attended New Student Orientation please contact an International Student Advisor at your campus. Panther Tracks covers topics for students that have already registered for classes.
  • You can move from track to track by using the menu listed to your right or the panther paw prints on the bottom of the page. If you want to go back to a section you have already completed, it will always be available for you
  • On the bottom of some pages you may find information about Related Links or College Lingo. Click on these tools to better understand each track.
  • Some of the pictures on each page contain an audio option. Click on the "Listen" button to hear advice from faculty, staff and students. A text option is also available.

Our friendly staff in the Office of International Education (OIE) are here to guide you through your college experience.
