Students talking

Being a new college student can present a few challenges. Learning how to navigate PCC is important whether you are coming here right from high school, returning to school after a career or transferring here from another college.

In the College 101 Track you will gain an understanding of important dates, deadlines and what you'll need to do to successfully complete your first term at PCC. Each checklist will guide you through critical weeks of the term and help prepare you for the next term to begin. You can always come back to the checklists anytime during the term.
