Information for Prospective Students and Families

Updated: March 27, 2020

Like many of you, we have been closely monitoring the recent developments associated with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, Presbyterian College has decided to continue remote learning for the undergraduate campus through the remainder of the spring semester, including final exams for undergraduates in late April and early May. In addition, the leadership team has canceled all on-campus events until further notice. Also, all regular-season competition, conference championships, and athletics activities that are required or that include coach involvement are cancelled through the remainder of the 2019-20 season.

As for the Office of Admission, we are working remotely for the forseeable future. However, we want to assure you that not much will change: We are still available to help you through the admission process. And we will still be debating whether a hotdog is a sandwich! Please consider visiting this page in the coming weeks for the most up-to-date information surrounding COVID-19 and the PC Office of Admission. Also, be sure to check out our new virtual offerings, including virtual information sessions and the Life at PC page.
