Welcome to PCC Admissions

The first step to becoming a college student is to be admitted. You can come to the Goess Student Center to apply in person or apply online. You should bring an official copy of your high school transcripts. For further information, see the list below or call Admissions & Records at 252-493-7232.

General Admissions

The basic requirements for curricular programs (Health Sciences Admissions excepted) are as follows:

The College requires high school graduation or the high school equivalency diploma for all Associate in Arts and Associate in Applied Science degrees and for most diploma and certificate programs. Selected diploma and certificate programs require students to have at least eight units of high school work or special permission. An official high school transcript is required.

Home schooled students must submit a copy of the home school's approved registration from the state in which they are registered, and an official transcript including the graduation date and documentation of completion of competency testing.

Please note that the NC Division of Non-Public Education (DNPE) home school laws apply only to schools enrolling students of high school age (at least 7 years of age through 18 years of age.) If the student enters the home school after age 16, the home school must already be in existence and registered with the state.

DPNE will not register "new" home schools for students over age 16. Schools are not empowered by state law to issue diplomas to post high school age students. In addition, nationally standardized achievement tests must be administered annually and evidence of these tests must be presented to the PCC Admissions office along with the home school transcript. The PCC placement tes does not qualify as an achievement test.  See http://www.ncdnpe.org/FAQs/hhh114e.aspx

Home schooled students unable to meet these requirments have the option of obtaining their high school diplomas either through the NC Community College Adult High School Diploma program, or through its' GED program. Click here for information on PCC's Basic Skills program.

  1. Each applicant must submit a completed Application for Admission. All students take placement tests with the exception of those transfer students who have successfully completed college-level English and Mathematics. To qualify for a waiver based on this exception, the student must present a post-secondary transcript documenting the college-level English and/or Mathematics to the admissions counselor. Waivers are also available for students who have made a minimum score on the SAT or ACT. (See ASSET and COMPASS Placement Testing for additional information.)
  2. Applicants for Electronics Engineering Technology and Architectural Technology should have completed one unit of algebra and one unit of geometry.
  3. Each applicant should make an appointment with an admissions counselor for a personal interview prior to enrollment in the College. The counseling session is designed to acquaint the student with the College and to help the student make a wise choice in program selection.

Admission of Home Schooled Students

Home schooled students must submit a copy of the home school's approved registration from the state in which they are registered and an official transcript including the graduation date and documentation of completion of competency testing. Please note that the NC Division of Non-Public Education home school laws apply only to schools enrolling students of compulsory attendance age (at least 7 years of age but not yet 16 years of age).

Home schools are not empowered by state law to issue diplomas to post high school age students. They may, however, obtain their high school diplomas either through the NC Community College adult high school diploma program or through its' GED program. See www.ncdnpe.org/FAQs/hhh114e.aspx.

Readmissions of Curricular Students

Official transcripts, placement testing, and additional admission requirements may be requested if not required during period of initial enrollment. Applicants for admission or readmission to Health Sciences programs must follow the Health Sciences Admissions Procedures for those programs. Students out of school as a result of disciplinary action must appear before the Vice President of Student Development Services and petition for readmission to the College.


Provisional Admissions

Admission of Undocumented Aliens

Effective July 10, 2010, the State Board of Community Colleges has completed the amendment process for 23 N.C.A.C. 02C .0301 entitled "Admission to Colleges" regarding undocumented immigrants. Under this rule, Pitt Community College will adhere to the following policy regarding the admission of undocumented immigrants.

  1. Any undocumented student registered into a class is required to pay the out-of-state tuition rate, which is set at $248.50 per credit hour for the 2010-2011 academic year.
  2. In implementing the priority provision in 23 N.C.A.C. 02C .0301 (b)(6), community colleges are responsible for ensuring that a student who is lawfully present in the United States will always have priority for a space in a class or program of study over a student who is not lawfully present in the United States, if there are space limitations. Therefore PCC shall neither enroll undocumented students into a class or program of study for which there are waiting lists, nor will we register undocumented students for classes until the conclusion of the last published (i.e. late) registration period.
  3. For the purposes of 23 N.C.A.C. 02C .0301 (b)(6), undocumented immigrants with a high school equivalency diploma are not considered to have "graduated from a United States public high school, private high school, or home school" and therefore are not eligible to be admitted to a community college.
  4. An undocumented immigrant with a diploma from an Adult High School that is located in the United States and operates or operated in compliance with state or local law is eligible to be admitted to a community college.
