| I have both positive and negative comments and therefore more of an advice issue. The education I received at PCC was top-rate. I actually enjoyed the emphasis on spiritual walk and academic scholarship. The rules did not bother me as I knew exactly what I was signing up for and therefore never regarded them crossly. I intentionally chose a college with social restrictions etc. because I felt that college is a time that some of my peers went "crazy" being away from home. I did not want to be one of those statistics. Thus, saying I received both my BS and MS degrees from PCC but was utterly unprepared for the reaction I received to PCC when I tried to obtain certification and later transfer my credits to get my PhD. I say unprepared because I enventually prevailed (with God's help) and obtained both my teaching certification and my principal certification (state certification) without additionally coursework. Cogently, I again received "NOs" when applying for my PhD. I did again prevail through continued appeals, prayer, and high GRE scores etc. I am now finished with my PhD coursework and am a PhD candidate at a a state university feverishly working to finish my PhD. I am considering PCC for my three children but the advice I have is if you realize you should go to PCC because you feel God is leading you there and you want a quality well-rounded education make sure that the road will not be easy to transition your academic scholarship into what the "world" recognizes and you will face roadblocks. If you can handle adversity then you have no problems. |

| I am a middle-aged business admin. graduate of PCC. I cannot recommend PCC to anyone, unless he is 100% sure God wants him there. You'll get an unaccredited degree, and an inches' thick rule book. You'll be treated like a junior high student all over again, instead of the young adult that you are. |
PCC prides itself on its ability to not get along with other Christian colleges or denominations. It does not have many friends in the Christian or secular education world. I purposefully steered my honors-graduate daughter to other accredited and respected colleges, and she is thriving as a Christian student in a secular university, where she can be a Christian example to her classmates, while getting one of the finest educations anywhere.
