Information for Prospective Students and Families

Updated: August 18, 2020

Like many of you, we’ve been closely monitoring the recent developments associated with the novel coronavirus (Covid-19). In response to CDC guidelines and after careful consideration, Presbyterian College has reopened campus for the 2020-2021 academic year. Of course, life looks a bit different on campus — everyone is doing their best to stop the spread of Covid-19 by wearing face coverings, washing their hands, and following social-distancing guidelines. Classes are being taught in a variety of formats, including totally online, in-person, or a mix of the two. And many of the in-person classes are being taught outdoors on our shady oak-lined plazas. These are just a few of the changes we’ve made as we do our absolute best to keep the PC family safe. For the latest updates and to learn more about our Covid-19 response, click here.

As for the Office of Admission, we are back on campus. Woo hoo! And we are happy to announce that we are now offering on-campus visit experiences! But if you and your family aren’t quite ready to see us in person, no worries. Our virtual offerings, including the virtual tourvirtual information sessions, and the Life at PC page, will help you see why you should #BeaBlueHose!
