Midterm Checklist

Midterm is a good time to reflect on your classes and prepare for the last half of the term and beyond. Make sure you are ready to move on by clicking on "Yes" or "No" to answer the questions below.

Ready for midterms?
Yes: You can always check out our Tutoring Services, located on each campus and online for help with classes and writing papers. If you would like test taking tips or study help, visit any Counseling office and meet with a counselor for assistance.
No: PCC offers a variety of resources to help you prepare for mid-terms and finals. Check out our Tutoring Services, located on each campus and online for help with classes and writing papers. If you need test taking tips or study help, visit any Counseling office and meet with a counselor for assistance.
Need help in your classes?
Yes: If you are having trouble in a class, make sure to get help before it is too late. Getting to know your instructor and talking with her or him about a problem as soon as you can will help you decide what to do. Academic advisors and counselors can also give you advice on what to do, and the earlier you talk with someone, the more options you have.
No: Did you know that getting to know your instructor can help you better succeed in your classes? Academic advisors and counselors are also here to help get you the resources you need to succeed.
Thinking of withdrawing from a class?
Yes: Before you withdraw from a class, make sure to understand all your options and the impact it could have on your academic standing and student account. In general, the Friday of the 8th week of the term is the last day you can withdraw from a class with a grade of "W".  The withdraw deadline is different for late start and short classes - see more about how to withdraw. Make sure you talk with an Academic Advisor before you withdraw from a class. If you have Financial Aid or any other type of aid, make sure to talk with the appropriate office before you withdraw from your class. Withdrawing could impact your aid. 
No:  Prepare for next term by getting an early start on your academic planning. Academic advisors can help you plan your classes and Career Exploration Centers can help you research careers that interest you.
Ready for next term?
Yes: Registration for next term will begin while you are still in classes! Be ready for registration by seeing an Academic Advisor for next term or long-term planning. Use the online schedule to get a head start on registration. Also check out the Registration Services channel on the MyPCC Home tab for a step by step registration guide.

Have you checked your term grades?
Yes: Great! Knowing where you are now will give you the information you need to maintain or improve your grade to meet your goals! Be sure to get to know your instructors. They can talk with you about your performance in class and help you if you are concerned about your grade.
No: Knowing your academic standing in a class helps you identify what you need to do to maintain the grades you want! You can ask your instructors for a Course Progress Notification (also called a CPN), which is a grade report letting you know how you're doing in class so far.  Be sure to talk with your instructors if you are concerned about your grades - they are here to help you!
