College Policies

Pima Community College's Board of Governors enacts, rescinds and modifies policies for the College. This authority is given by the Arizona State Legislature.

Policy Transition 2015-2017
PCC has begun transitioning to a two-tiered system of Board Policies and Administrative Procedures.  Revised Board Policies that use a new numbering system have been published on the website.  New Administrative Procedures will be published as they are developed, and the corresponding Regulations and Standard Practice Guides will be deleted.
