Student Rights and Responsibilities

All PCC students are considered to be responsible individuals and are accountable for their own behavior. The College expects all students to obey local, state and federal laws, and to follow the College's standards of conduct.

Student rights and responsibilities regarding procedures for code of conduct penalties can be found online.

If You Have a Problem

A complaint is a concern that a policy or procedure of the College has been incorrectly or unfairly applied, or a charge against a person's behavior. A student has recourse through complaint procedures. Students with general or grade complaints should begin the process by reviewing the student complaints page.

Step 5: Be aware of other responsibilities

Take responsibility for your learning: know and use resources such as free campus tutoring, advising and counseling services, disability services as needed; and choose the format of classes that best suit your learning style.

Life management skills include effective time management, financial management, self care, and academic skills. You are expected to seek help from instructors for academic support and student services personnel for these other areas as needed.

Finally, let us know how we can help! If you have questions, just ask.
