PCC and

As of today on, Pensacola Christian College is the most reviewed school out of all colleges, universities and graduate schools in the United States.

Part of the reason is this letter, sent to alumni.

Dear Alumni,

There is a website named that appears to be objective in its review of colleges and universities. For the most part, responses by former PCC students are from those who never graduated and, consequently, the majority would not want to attend here again.

It would help your alma mater, as a four-year graduate, if you would visit this site and fill out their alumni survey. We believe a graduate would present a more accurate and positive picture of their experience at PCC. For a complete review, be sure to select "Goto Advanced Alumni" after the initial alumni survey.

Thank you for helping us.

The PCC Alumni Association

Hello Everyone,
My name is Beracah, and I am the Director of StudentsReview. First of all, I would like to thank everyone for their wonderful and thoughtful comments on PCC! We here at StudentsReview strive to maintain data integrity and know the biases that the data contains. It has come to our attention that PCC staff has sent out an email requesting Alumni to review PCC using our online survey. If at all possible, could someone forward the relevant content of the email to us for analysis? Also, does anyone know if this email was sent to ALL PCC alums, or just to select ones? We are observing a rate of positive opinions & comments dramatically (and statistically) inconsistent with the data accumulated over the past 7 years, and are seeking an explanation.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you & Regards,

Beracah Yankama
Director, StudentsReview

Hello everyone,
Thank you for all of the helpful information you have provided! Some of
you have expressed concern that we are not aware of the sudden surge in
reviews, but we do monitor the data and trends very closely, so that we
may keep somewhat consistent and known biases across schools.

From a number of comments, it seems while the alumni email did
technically go out to the entire alumni list, that list may only contain
select students, or those students positively biased into joining the
alumni association list. Also, the wording of the email suggests that
our existing data is from students who never completed PCC, making it
seem misrepresentative in some way. This is not true. The existing
data came primarily from *current* students at PCC (not yet completed),
and alumni. A small few did not complete, but the majority were "in the
process of completing", which is decidedly different from "never
completed". This means that the email wording solicits an improper
"corrective" bias into the reviews. (i.e. "correct this
misrepresentative, false data").

As of this moment we are undecided how to proceed, so we are watching
the trends to determine what needs be done. As soon as we come to a
decision, please rest assured that we will let *everyone* know.

Thank you,

Beracah Yankama

Pensacola Christian College Staff Handbook

This is hosted on as a zipfile. It is a good idea to read this, even if you are just a potential student. This handbook gives you a good impression of "how things work" to an extent at PCC.

A Greeting from Our President

Welcome to Pensacola Christian College. It is our
prayer that this year will be one of the happiest and
most spiritually enriching years of your life.

Life is a blend of privileges and responsibilities.
When you learn to balance these ingredients, you have
personal fulfillment and harmonious relationships with
others. This is a vital part of your education and
your overall spiritual growth. This Student Handbook
contains the regulations and procedures that govern
student life and a description of the many student
services provided for you at Pensacola Christian
College. I trust that you will willingly accept both
the privileges and the responsibilities.

If you have questions regarding any part of the
handbook, feel free to contact the Student Life
Office. We want to assist you in any way we can.

May God bless you as together we seek to serve Him.

Arlin Horton, LL.D.

As you become familiar with Pensacola Christian
College, you will discover that the College provides
many services for you. They are designed to make your
stay at PCC more profitable and enjoyable. These
services will only be as valuable as you make them.


The College desires for students to devote as much
time and attention as possible to their studies and
college activities. However, many students find it
necessary to be employed to meet their financial

1. Work Assistance Program is available to assist
students working their way through college, such as,
offices, bookstores, and other facets and affiliates
of PCC.
Students interested in the program should
complete a Work Assistance Application and send it to
the Admissions Office, AC-4. Preferences for specific
work areas may be indicated on the application;
however, assignments will be based on the overall
needs of the College.

2. Work Responsibilities--Those students who are
employed on campus will be expected to work the full
nine months of the school year. A work student should
never take a leave of absence from work
responsibilities without making prior arrangements
with his supervisor or employer well in advance of the
intended absence.
No student is exempted from his job
responsibilities during exam time. If his scheduled
exam time conflicts with his work time, he is to let
his work supervisor know well in advance and return to
his job the same day to make up any time lost because
of the exam.
Students may not borrow items from any work area
and should not enter these areas unless they do so as
part of their assigned work or by prior permission of
the staff supervisor of that area.
The Academy, PCC Print Shop, and the distribution
center are off limits to college students except for
class activities of work responsibilities.

3. Keys--No student is to have in his possession any
key belonging to the Academy or College unless he has
been assigned that key to perform specified duties.
The use of keys for unapproved reasons will be dealt
with by the Discipline Committee. Duplicating keys is
forbidden. A fee will be charged to anyone unable to
turn in a key that he has checked out.

4. Illness--If a student is ill and has to miss his
work responsibility, he is required to contact his
work supervisor in advance of the time he would report
to work and let the supervisor know he has checked in
with the Graf Clinic.

5. Off-Campus Employment--Students should practice
good work ethics with their employers. Therefore, any
student employed off campus is expected to give a
sufficient notice of no less than two weeks to his
employer and the Student Life Office if he intends to
terminate his employment.
Students may not work on Sundays and may not
obtain employment in any establishment where they
would need to handle alcoholic beverages.
Town students and resident men must obtain the
approval of the Student Life Office before accepting
off-campus employment. Resident women must be 25
years of age before being permitted to work off
campus. Permanent off-campus permissions for work may
be obtained from the Student Life Office. High school
residence hall students may not work off campus.

very seriously injured or is in a life-or-death
situation, call ext. 555 immediately. Emergency calls
to this extension are recorded 24 hours a day.


1. Enrollment and transcripts--When Pensacola
Christian College accepts a student, it is understood
that it is for a nine-month period; if a student does
not intend to stay for the second semester, he must
fill out a cancellation form during the last two weeks
of the semester. If he has not given written
notification one week prior to the official opening of
the semester (Tuesday in September/Monday in January),
he must pay within 30 days 25 percent of the full
semester's tuition. No transcripts will be issued
until this is paid.
Students should allow three weeks after the end
of the semester for the release of transcripts so that
the College can clear all accounts.
Students owe the Academic Program Fee based on
the declared major as stated in the Records Office at
the end of Drop/Add.

2. Payments and Financial Arrangements--Students are
responsible for their financial obligations whether
they or their parents pay the account. Therefore,
each student should familiarize himself with how much
he owes, his schedule of payments, and the amount of
each payment. Envelopes for making payments are at
the Business Office and Information Desk. Payments
should be dropped off in the box outside the Business
Office doors (after

[page 13]
hours or in the cabinet lobby of the Business Office.
There is a charge of $20 for returned checks.
If a student is having a problem with his
account, he needs to take the initiative and meet with
someone in the Business Office regarding this. If a
student owes more than $50 (phone bill included) at
the end of a semester, his grade report will be held
until payment is received. The college deans do not
make financial arrangements or employment agreements
with students; these matters are handled by the
appropriate departments.

3. Financial Services--PCC has worked closely with
AmSouth Bank of Florida to proved college students a
convenient and inexpensive package of banking
services. Included in the services available to all
PCC students is a minimal-cost checking account (no
minimum balance required) and two automatic teller
machines in the Commons which are connected to the
nationwide networks for ATMs.
Parents may deposit checks to the student's
personal checking account at home if the student can
access his checking account at home through the
networks; the student may then withdraw funds from one
of the ATMs on campus. The bank charges a nominal fee
for such ATM transitions.
AmSouth Bank will make members of its staff
available to counsel and instruct students as to the
proper way to administer a checking account.
Any form of stealing, whether or not it is
related to ATM code numbers, may result in the
dismissal of the student from the College.

4. Personal and College Property--Pensacola
Christian College is not liable for damage to personal
belongings of students under any circumstances
including the event of a catastrophe such as, but not
limited to, windstorm, hail, flood, riot, riot
attending a strike, civil commotion, explosion, fire,
smoke, vehicle or aircraft accident. Neither is the
College liable for theft of personal belongings of
students. Students should not keep money in their
residence hall rooms, but should use the ATM system
available in the Commons.
Those who overload elevators will be charged the
cost of repairs. Everyone on the elevator will be
The elevators in the Commons, Sports Center,
Communicative Arts Center, and Dale Horton Auditorium
are for the handicapped.

5. PCC Card serves as a cash card. Students should
not damage or punch holes in this card. There are
machines in the Library, Commons, Sports Center, each
of the six residence halls, and by the Information
Desk to put money on PCC Cards. These cards are to be
used in the Sports Center, the Palms Grille, The
Bookstore, and in vending, copy, and laundry machines.
Students who bank at AmSouth can use their PCC Card
as their ATM card. If a student's PCC Card is lost or
taken by the ATM, he can obtain a duplicate card from
the Reservation Office (AC 442). During the evening
and on weekends, he may obtain a temporary card from
the Information Desk.

6. Student Services Fee/Yearbook--Full-time college
students (either residence hall or town students) who
have paid the Student Services Fee both semesters are
entitled to receive a college yearbook. Seniors who
complete their college work in the first semester are
also entitled to a yearbook.


Students may not participate in the selling of
products or solicitation of any nature on campus,
except that residence hall Academy students may sell
candy for the official Academy candy sale. Students
are not to be involved in chain letters or pyramid
schemes. There is to be no collection of money from
students for any reason without prior authorization
from the Administration.


1. Music Standards--At Pensacola Christian College,
we feel it important that our students learn to
appreciate and be involved in music that enhances
their Christian testimony. Therefore, students are
encouraged to listen to classical, semiclassical and
good Christian music. The fine arts staff of the
College acknowledges its responsibility to provide
musical experiences designed to develop the appetites
of our students for such music.
The following types of music are not permitted:
a. Current popular music
b. Jazz, rock, rap, folk, "Nashville" type, or new age
c. Religious music performed in the folk, western
rock, or gospel rock style
d. Soundtracks from movies rated PG-13, PG, or below

[page 14]
Because the easy-listening music on local radio
stations is consistently rock music, the only station
we recommend in Pensacola is 89.5 Rejoice Radio.

2. Music Checks--It is the students' responsibility
to be certain they listen to music that meets the
college standard. Music that does not meet the
standard must be turned in immediately. Students who
have questions regarding specific tapes, records, or
CDs should turn them in to the residence manager to be
checked. Approved music will be returned to the
music. Unsuitable music will be retained by the
College until the semester concludes. Headphones and
earphones should not be brought to the campus.

3. Student Music Groups--All music performed by
individuals or groups in church, Sunday school,
Christian service activities, or other programs on or
off campus must be memorized, checked, and approve
before it is used. Soundtracks may be used as
background music. Consult the Activities Calendar for
the regularly scheduled music checks.
Student musical groups must follow these
a. All members of a musical group must be members of
the same collegian. This includes the accompanist and
the leader. Mixed groups may contain men from one
men's collegian and women from one women's collegian
b. The maximum number of members in a group is eight
plus one accompanist.
c. Exceptions are allowed only for groups of brothers
and sisters (only one family per musical group) and
groups assigned by the music faculty as an academic

a collegian officer. As is true with collegian
officers, the leader's participation in the group will
be reviewed if he reaches 75 demerits.

Follow Music Guidelines. Those are available at Music
f. Pan-Hellenic service pointes will be given for
collegian music groups' participation.
g. Groups may perform only twice per month.
h. Performing groups may not use any of the PCC
recording studios for rehearsals or the making of

located in the Communicative Arts Center, Bradley
Tower, and Young Tower. Women may use the
Communicative Arts Center studios whenever the
building is open or the Bradley Tower studios.

5. Musical Instruments--Musical instruments are to
be used only in those places and times designated by
the music department. This applies to all students,
whether or not they have been assigned to practice
Guitars may be used for Sunday school, banquets,
or Christian Service as special music or on outings if
no piano is available. A taped piano accompaniment is
recommended if a piano is not available at the meeting


1. Cell Phones, Pagers, Palm Pilots, or Other
Wireless Devices that utilize cellular or wireless
technology for the purpose of receiving or
transmitting telephone calls, pager messages, e-mail,
Internet, or any other electronic message may not be
used on the campus of Pensacola Christian College.
Students may have a standard cell telephone (without
e-mail or Internet service), provided it remains in
their automobile.
Misuse of a cellular phone on campus may result
in the student having to turn it in to the Residence

2. Personal Computer--Students may have a personal
computer and printer to assist them with fulfilling
their academic requirements, but they may not use them
during class sessions. Also, computers may not be
connected to Internet or e-mail services including
wireless services. Students that own a computer will
be held responsible for their computer as well as any
files stored on their computer or medium played over
their computer. Therefore, students should take every
precaution to avoid others using their computer.
Computers may not be used to play CD or DVD movies.
The content of all files, CDs, or DVDs must conform to
PCC policy and standards noted elsewhere in this
PCC reserves the right to check the computer
files on any personal computer on campus if, in the
opinion of the Administration, it is reported or
suspected that said files or related medium may be in
violation of the policies and standards of the

Some of the most lasting friendships of life have
been a result of acquaintances started as roommates at
college. The experiences you have with your roommates
will be a source of spiritual strength during your
college years and a source of pleasant memories for
the rest of your life. To assure that your say in the
residence hall will be a pleasant one, the College
Administration feels that the following regulations
are necessary.


For everyone's mutual protection and benefit,
there is to be no borrowing or renting of another
person's property--including everything from ties to
automobiles. Borrowing or using umbrellas without
permission is considered stealing and will be dealt
with accordingly. Students may borrow from each other
items needed for official college stage productions as
long as there is proper agreement between the
Practical jokes, horseplay, or boisterous conduct
all too often offends someone or results in damage of
property or persons and will not be permitted. There
is to be no running or excessive noise in the
residence halls or rooms.
No students should ever be in another person's
residence hall room unless a resident of that room is
Students may not conduct surveys or circulate
petitions without prior approval of the


1. Furniture and Air Conditioning--Room furniture
(except chairs) may not be moved. Wet items should be
hung in the bathroom only. Beds and room furniture
should be kept clear of wet hanging items as this
causes rust on the beds and stains the wood furniture.
Drying racks should be used in the bathrooms or
laundry rooms.
To allow for proper ventilations, no furniture or
personal belongings should be placed in front of
air-conditioning units, nor should decorations cover
the air-conditioning vents.
To protect the carpet, wet umbrellas should be
left in the umbrella rack outside the residence hall
or put in the shower or bathtub. Wet umbrellas should
not be left in the hallways. Those breaking
thermostats by forcing them past the preset
temperatures are responsible to pay for damages and
labor costs (approximately $75). If there is a
problem with temperature in your room, ask your
floorleader to contact maintenance.
Damage to furniture, plumbing, door handles,
etc., should be reported to the floorleaders

2. Walls and Doors--Students should not put nails,
tacks, pins, or screws into the walls, ceiling, or
woodwork of the rooms. Regular straight pins may be
used in the corners of the ceiling as long as the
walls are not damaged. The name plate on the exterior
of each door should have a card mounted with the
residents' names. There should be no other exterior
door decoration. Tape or Plasti-tak(R) may not be
used on any surface.
All exterior residence hall doors are to be
locked at all times except for the front doors,
Coberly and Ballard south end doors, and the Young
west end door. For security purposes, please do not
prop open any doors.

3. Blinds and Windows--Beginning in late afternoon
before sunset, all room blinds, except those on the
first floor, should be tilted upward so that a student
in the room can see the sky; this keeps people on the
outside from seeing into the room. Blinds on the
first floor should be tilted downward so that the
ground is visible. Students will be required to pay
for damaged or bent blinds.
The residence hall windows on all floors of the
residence halls are to be kept closed and locked,
except periodically for airing out purposes approved
by the residence manager. There is to be no
communication through the windows of any building.

[page 16]
4. Electrical Items such as lights, irons, curling
irons, radios, etc., are to be turned off when no one
is in the room.
Radios, table lamps, irons, hair dryers, curling
irons, and electric razors may be used in the
residence halls, but please no microwaves, hot plates,
electric skillets, electric fans, heating coils, sun
lamps, coffee pots, televisions, television video
games, radios designed to pick up television stations,
electric blankets, or extra furniture. Small
bookcases may be used in the rooms. Hot pots and
popcorn poppers may be used in the laundry or vending
rooms. Electric Christmas lights are not permitted,
but battery-operated lights may be used.
Students may iron in their rooms; however, when
not in use irons should always be placed on the
bathroom counters rather than left in the room. Irons
should never be placed on the carpet. Irons should
not be kept in the laundry rooms.


1. Authorization Code--Each student at Pensacola
Christian College receives a telephone authorization
code number. This authorization code is a blank
check. Under no circumstances should it be given to
anyone else. The student is completely liable and
will be billed for all calls made on his authorization
code number. Unauthorized use of another person's
authorization code will be treated as stealing.

2. Incoming Calls--Pensacola Christian College
operates an automated residence hall switchboard which
allows incoming calls to student rooms. Parents may
call students by dialing (850) 476-8000. The caller
then enters the 7-digit student phone number that the
student has previously given them, and the call is
Those who call asking for women by name or asking
for their phone number will be referred to our message
center rather than being transferred to the room.
This is to protect students from unwanted phone calls.
Messages will be sent to mailboxes. Of course,
people dialing the automated switchboard with the
correct telephone number can be connected directly to
their room. Students should not give their phone
number to anyone except those from whom they want to
receive calls.
The residence hall switchboard directs calls to
students' rooms from 6:30 a.m. to 10 pm. (Central
Students should inform their parents that in case
of an emergency between 10 p.m. and 6:30 a.m., parents

the Business Office.

4. Courtesy--Use proper courtesy when answering the
phone. If the caller asks to speak to someone who is
not present, offer to take a message. If the person
is in the suite, do not yell to him; instead, go get
the student.
Out of courtesy for those desiring to place
long-distance calls, calls between residence halls and
local calls are to be limited to 30 minutes. Calls
may be made between residence halls from 6:30 a.m.
until 7 p.m. Mon through Thurs. and until 10 p.m. Fri.

5. Voice Mail--As part of the telephone service,
each student is provided with a personal voice
mailbox. Callers who dial a student's 7-digit
extension number will be given an opportunity to leave
a recorded message when the phone is not answered or
is busy. It is the student's responsibility to check

Students should put all disposable items smaller
than a shoe box in the trash chute. Larger cardboard
boxes should be broken down and placed in designated
locations in each building. Styrofoam (R) pellets

1. Off Campus--Residence hall students who are 23
years old or older should always scan or sign out or
obtain a pass when leaving campus. They may be away
on overnight cuts as well as weekend cuts; however,
attendance at College functions such as Fine Arts
Series, Vespers, Bible Conference, Commencement
Contests, etc., is required.
Procedures for going to the beach are the same as
for others students except that 23 and older students
may go in groups of two. Students should always leave
the beach before dark.
On Fri.-Sun., 23 and older students may sign out
until 10:25 p.m.; however, on Mon.-Thurs., they must
return to campus by 10 p.m. Since Sun. is considered
a day of rest, shopping should be handled on another
Twenty-three and older students may date off
campus without a chaperone. For testimony's sake
students should never go to the beach as couples, be
at a park after dark, or visit in the home of
unmarried members of the opposite sex.

2. Residence Halls--Older students are assigned to
one area of the residence hall so that the atmosphere
on the floor will be quieter and less disturbing.
A floorleader will come into rooms in that area
at 11 p.m. to be sure students are in the building,
however older students are not required to be in bed.
Those who stay up after 11 p.m. should be quiet so
they do not disturb sleeping residents. They may stay
up in their room or in the hall.

3. Sunday School/Collegian Meeting--Older students
may attend the Sunday school of their academic
classification or the 23 and older class.
Collegian meetings are optional for 23 and older
students. Since the residence halls are locked, they
may go to the Library to study.

The Christian life does not develop
spontaneously, but the wonderful atmosphere at PCC
will help you cultivate and maintain your Christian
growth. As you take advantage of the opportunities at
PCC, your life will be blessed, and you will mature as
an adult and as a Christian.


The most important part of your day should be
your time alone with the Lord. Your own private
devotional time will do much to help you claim God's
promise of perfect peace to those whose minds are
stayed on Him (Isa. 26:3).
The Scriptures say our time with the Lord should
be private. "But thou, when thou prayest, enter into
thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to
thy Father in secret; and thy Father which seeth in
secret shall reward thee openly." (Matt. 6:6) Prayer
rooms are located in each residence hall and provide a
quiet place for you to have your devotions. Couples
desiring to have devotions together are permitted to
do so in the Social Hall during regularly scheduled


Daily chapel services are a time when the college
family meets together to hear the Word of God
Because of the important role which the chapel
services play in our college life, full-time students
and residence hall graduate students are required to
attend. Chapel seats are assigned each semester.
If a student has guests who wish to attend
chapel, he should ask the usher to seat the guests in
the area reserved for them. The student should sit in
his assigned seat.
All students, including high school resident
students, should read the student bulletin boards
daily. Chapel announcements are posted on the
Academic Center bulletin board for the benefit of
those who did not attend chapel.


The focal point of the spiritual life at
Pensacola Christian College is Campus Church which
provides a home church away from home. Opportunities
are available for students to be involved in the youth
ministry, Awana program, children's churches, and
nursery. Students involved in these ministries should
miss only one church service per week.
Residence hall and town students who are not
permanent residents of this area attend the church
services of Campus Church. These services include
Sunday school, the Sunday morning and evening
services, and the Wednesday evening service. To help
us get everyone seated before church begins, students
may not congregate outside the Dale Horton Auditorium
before church services. Students should plan to meet
their dates and friends at the residence halls rather
than in front of the auditorium. Once you meet your
date or friends you should go into the Dale Horton
Auditorium without loitering outside or in the lobby.
All students are to be seated five minutes before the
service is to begin. Couples may not linger in the
church following services as the Dale Horton
Auditorium is considered an unchaperoned area
immediately after the service.
Students are required to attend Sunday school
classes, class meetings, etc., on the basis of their
official classification. The official classification
is listed on the student's welcome card. Any question
about classification should be referred to the Records
Since practicing sign language or song leading
during church services or at other public gatherings
is distracting, students who practice sign language
during church services should sit in the deaf section.
Cameras and tape recorders are not permitted in
church, chapel, classes, or any college program.


The College believes that every student should be
involved in Christian service. Therefore, we
encourage each student to go out weekly on a Christian

[page 23]
service activity. The exercise of your faith in
various Christian service activities will contribute
to your spiritual growth and effectiveness in the
Lord's work.

1. General--Christian service groups should consist
of at least three students. Questions regarding
Christian Service should be directed to the Student
Life Office. Music performed must pass the music

2. Women students may go in groups of two on daytime
door-to-door visitation in neighborhoods approved by
the Student Life Office. They may not enter a home
unless the wife is present.
A male student may drive for a women's Christian
Service providing he is not dating a member of the

3. Check-Out Procedures--When leaving campus,
student should scan out indicating where they are
going on Christian Service by touching the number
corresponding with their particular activity. When
returning to campus, they should scan in.

4. Dress--Students leaving campus for Christian
service activities are expected to dress in keeping
with College standards and should remember that they
represent the College as well as the Lord.


1. Charismatic Movement--Pensacola Christian College
takes a definite stand against the modern-day
charismatic movement. We stand against the
un-Scriptural emphasis that is espoused by the
charismatic movement, the erroneous interpretation of
the Scriptures by the movement, and the divisiveness
that the charismatic movement often creates.
Without meaning to be unfriendly or unkind to
anyone, we feel it is only fair to say the above at
the very outset of our relationship. Students are not
permitted to participate in or promote charismatic

2. Hyper-Calvinism--It has been the observation of
the College that students who take a stand for
hyper-Calvinism tend to spend time discussing these
beliefs instead of accepting their responsibility of
witnessing to others. Therefore, Pensacola Christian
College does not permit the promotion of
hyper-Calvinistic beliefs.

[page 24]
Pensacola Christian College has a self-contained
campus very much like a city with a full range of
services and activities available to campus members.
These services and activities range from campus
security to a full-time local church, Christian
service activities, chapel services (four per week),
athletic programs including men's intercollegiate
basketball and wrestling and women's intercollegiate
volleyball, as well as an intramural sports program
involving 44 men's and women's collegians.
Students experience a full social life with
friendships and dating to Campus Church activities,
many intercollegiate and collegian sports activities,
fine arts programs (plays, opera, concerts, Vespers
services), and speech and music recitals. Students
also enjoy spending time with a "friend," sharing a
snack at the Palms Grille; meeting for breakfast or
lunch in Varsity; playing tennis; playing Ping-Pong,
miniature golf, racquetball, or wallyball, or bowling
or ice skating in the Sports Center; dating in the
Social Hall; and attending off-campus dating outings
and other special off-campus dating experiences.
A myriad of social opportunities allows students
to cultivate healthy relationships which honor the
Lord Jesus Christ. Such wholesome activities foster
communication, spiritual growth, and lasting
Leadership opportunities abound--whether it be
class or student body offices, collegian offices,
residence hall floorleaders, sports teams,
cheerleaders, ushers, ensemble members security, work
leadership, etc. More than 1,000 work assistance
campus jobs provide students opportunities to work
their way through college.
These pluses are made available through our
"city," where students have the opportunity to receive
the best in educational experiences at an affordable
price! Some policies may vary for male and female
students for safety and personal security reasons.

The College has as its stated purpose to train
young people for Christian service while it equips
them for their professional field. The standard for
Christians contemplating such leadership is
considerably high than standards of the world or even
standards for local church membership. The College
desires that each student develop personal standards
based upon such Biblical principles as yieldedness and
obedience to God, concern for others, and a close walk
with God.
Based on these expectations from the Lord and as
a distinctively Christian institution, Pensacola
Christian College has designed policies to aid
students in developing their Christian testimony and
in living lives that are above reproach. Therefore,
students at Pensacola Christian College may not
participate in worldly activities such as dancing,
gambling (including the lottery), renting or watching
video movies, movie-going, and card playing, whether
on campus or off campus. Of course, the possession or
use of liquor, nonmedical drugs, or tobacco, or the
use of profanity or obscenity in any form is not
allowed. Under no circumstances will pornography,
premarital or extramarital sex, homosexuality, or
other sex perversions be allowed. Students who
participate in the above activities will be subject to
administrative withdrawal.
It is further expected that students exercise
Christian discretion and restrain in the choice of
entertainment, including, but not limited to, radio,
recordings, and various forms of literature, such as
fleshly magazines and books. Video or board games
that are of the occult, Satanic, or contain graphic
violence or nudity are not permitted.
Pensacola Christian is above all else a Christian
institution in both philosophy and practice. We
firmly believe there is no place at PCC for worldly
practices or divisions so common among other
institutions of higher learning. Pensacola Christian
has the reputation of having a student body with an
excellent spirit with every student treated equally
and fairly regardless of nationality, race, or
background. Therefore, any student who promotes
division or a divisive spirit through symbols,
pictures, writing, flags, banners, slogans or any
divisive activism is out of harmony with the standards
and Christian philosophy of Pensacola Christian and
may be withdrawn or refused reenrollment at the
discretion of the administration.
The College is well aware that observance of
these regulations does not comprise man's total
responsibility to God and hence does not necessarily
indicate that a person is living a life of complete
commitment to Christ. However, the willingness to
adhere to these regulations exhibits maturity and
spiritual concern for

[page 25]
the well-being of others and is generally
characteristic of those diligently seeking to do God's

In a day of moral decay such as America is
experiencing, it is important that the believer take
special care to see that his conduct reflect Biblical
standards. This is especially true in the realm of
dating. To assure that our students conduct
themselves above question with members of the opposite
sex, students must observe the following regulations.

1. Dating Events--Students may date at church
services, certain weekend sports activities, special
College functions such as recitals, Vespers, plays,
and Fine Arts Series, as well as at other specified
Students may arrive at collegian games 15 minutes
before game time and 45 minutes before Eagles games.
Men students may meet women students at the
residence halls before church services, Fine Arts
Series, and Vespers, but not before meals. Couples
may walk back to the residence hall from church
services, meals, Fine Arts Series, and Vespers, but
not from any other evening events.

2. Social Hours begin at 7:30 a.m. Mon. through
Fri., 8:30 a.m. Sat., and 9:25 a.m. Sun., and end
following the evening meal. Students of the opposite
sex are not to be together before social hours except
for approved Christian service activities or
breakfast. Students who eat breakfast before social
hours need to meet and say good-bye at breakfast.
Couples may walk across campus together during social
hours, provided that one member of the couple has
business at the destination. Couples may not walk
together to the Academy.
Couples and mixed groups including dates who are
not students, may be together after social hours
inside the Commons and Sports Center and at approved
sports events, but must meet and part inside that

3. Commons/The Palms Grille--Couples may socialize
in the Commons during the following times.

M-R 7:30 a.m. - 9:45 p.m.

Couples may also socialize in the Palms Grille
after they have made purchases. Students may study in
the Commons and the Palms Grille during the day and in
the evenings when the Sports Center is open (purchase
necessary in the Palms Grille). Because of crowded
conditions, students may not study in the Commons
after 7 p.m. on Wed. and Sun. Students may not leave
personal belongings in the Commons during chapel.
Items left in the Commons will be taken to Lost and
Found. Students should purchase food from the Palms
Grille rather than bringing food from local
restaurants into the Commons or the Commons Plaza.
Games may be played by dating couples or mixed
groups in the Social Hall rather than the Commons.
Men should wear ties in the Commons on Sundays,
and appropriate behavior and attire is expected at all
times. We ask students not to tilt chairs or place
feet on furniture. For the benefit of all, students
are to place all food items and wrappers in the trash
receptacles as they leave the area.
If a vending machine does not work properly,
please do not shake or bang on the machine, but report
the problem to The Bookstore cashier.
When the Commons closes, women students are to
exit through the northwest doors by the Palms Grill
and men students exit through the northeast doors by
the mailboxes.
Students may reserve the Patio Room and the
Gazebo Room for parties by signing up at least two
days in advance at the Palms Grille.

4. Commons Plaza--Students may be on the Commons
plaza Mon. through Fri. from 7:30 a.m. until 5:45 p.m.
or dusk, whichever comes first. Sat. and Sun.
students may use the plaza (Sat. from 9 a.m. until
5:45 p.m.; Sun. after church until 3 p.m.)

5. Social Hall--Students may take guests to the
Social Hall any time the Social Hall is open. The
stair towers for going to the Social Hall are as
follows: Men--the outside stairs by The Bookstore;
Women--the inside stairs by the Post Office. Women
students are to sign in and out at the Social Hall
desk. Men should wear ties on Sundays.
The Social Hall is closed during Eagles home
basketball games.
Siblings who want to make conference calls home
may use the extension phones in the conference room.

6. Sports Center--Students can enjoy bowling,
racquetball, wallyball, table tennis, miniature golf,
checkers, and ice skating at the Sports Center. There
are also two weight rooms with state-of-the-art
equipment. Chewing gum in the Sports Center is not

[page 26]
Management reserves the right to limit the use of
the Sports Center to anyone at any time. Everyone
participating in all Sports Center activities
(including racquetball and ice skating) does so at his
own risk. Pensacola Christian College does not
provide accident insurance.
PCC Cards are needed for admission to the Sports
Center. If you have out-of-town guests that you want
to visit the Sports Center, they need a visitor's name
tag from the security guard on duty at the Sports
Center. Your guests must accompany you while in the
Sports Center.
Guests must meet the students' dress code to
enter the Sports Center. Guests that do not meet the
dress code and yet who want to see the facility need
to be encouraged to go on the tour of the facility
that regularly meets and leaves at the Information
Students who have their own skates pay the same
fee to skate as others. Those not paying the skating
fee or bowling, racquetball, and wallyball fees will
receive up to 100 demerits.
Men and women must meet and say goodbye inside
the Sports Center. Students should not arrive at the
Sports Center before the building opens.
Women students walk to the Sports Center down the
Main Drive sidewalk between the Dale Horton Auditorium
and CoGeneration Plant. Men students should use the
sidewalk east of the Library and tennis courts.
To reserve a party time, sign up at The Hub.

7. Tennis Courts--Two or more couples or one couple
and two additional girls may use the main tennis
courts on Mon. through Fri. afternoons and Sat. from
12 noon to 5 p.m. Couples must sign up in advance in
the Student Life Office. Students may change into
their recreational attire in the residence halls. Men
should wear long pants when women are present. Court
shoes, not jogging shoes, must be worn on the tennis

8. Dating Reminders--Couples may not loiter at any
place on campus but should visit at the designated
places and times.
Students may not socialize on the benches in
front of the residence halls or other unchaperoned
locations on campus.
Couples are not permitted to be alone in
classrooms or other areas of any building or
Students should not visit with guests of the
opposite sex in the residence hall lobbies but should
go over to the Commons to visit.
There is to be no physical contact between
members of the opposite sex.

9. Off-Campus Dating--Residence hall women may date
off campus when accompanied by an approved chaperone.
High school students (both men and women) are to be
accompanied by an approved chaperone when dating off
campus. The chaperone is considered the guest of the
students and campus dating standards apply. A list of
approved chaperones is available in the Student Life
Office. Questions regarding chaperoning should be
directed to the Associate Dean of Student Life.
Residence hall women may date their student
boyfriend (undergraduate, graduate, or GA) off campus
with his parents as chaperones to University and
Cordova Malls and local restaurants. Parental
permission is needed for women students under 21.
Students who are going off campus in mixed groups
must declare this when obtaining their passes or
scanning out. Any students who meet off campus as
couples or in mixed groups without written permission
and without an authorized chaperone will be
automatically withdrawn from the College. This
includes someone who is not a student.

10. Miscellaneous Dating--Residence hall men may date
town students with written permission from the Dean of
Student Life.
Men 20 years old or juniors may date
faculty/staff members off campus without a chaperone
to local homes and restaurants. They may also date on
campus, as can women students dating faculty/staff, to
the Social Hall, the Palms Grille, at church services,
Fine Arts Series, Vespers, and recitals. Students
must meet and leave their dates at these on-campus
locations. They may also date off campus in the home
of married faculty/staff and other local homes (no
more than once per month in a particular home).
Resident men may date a woman student in her home
provided a parent is present. Campus dating standards

11. Graduate Students/23 and Older Students--Graduate

students are at least 20 years old or juniors.
Graduate men may date undergraduate women on or off
campus provided an approved chaperone is present.
Graduate women may date undergraduate men off campus
without a chaperone. Graduate students may also date
faculty/staff members on or off campus without
chaperones, provided the faculty/staff member is not
the student's instructor. Students who are 23 years
old and older or who have a bachelor's degree have the
same dating privileges as graduate students.


We do not feel that "clothes make the person."
You will find that our emphasis at Pensacola Christian
College is on the inward quantities of character.
With this in mind, you will not need a large,
expensive wardrobe.

3. All Students
a. Returning to Campus
Students returning to campus following holidays
or the summer must be dressed and have haircuts
according to College standards when they arrive on
campus. Students should dress according to College
standards when leaving for cuts or holidays.
b. Sweatshirts and T-Shirts
Sweatshirts and T-Shirts are acceptable wear for
participation in recreational activities and for work
responsibilities where casual wear is appropriate.
Students should not wear sweatshirts or T-shirts to
classes, to evening meals, in the Commons, as
spectators at athletic events, in the Sports Center,
or off campus. Shirts or jackets with pictures or
words (other than your name) may not be worn outside
the residence halls or in the main lobby of the
residence halls. The exception is official PCC shirts
(including official collegian shirts) which may be
worn any time as afternoon class dress. Men are not
required to wear a tie to morning classes on collegian
meeting days; however, a collared shirt must be worn
with their collegian shirt.
In order to promote an esprit de corps, it is
traditional at most colleges for students not to wear
articles of clothing which have names of high schools,
other colleges, or schools attached. In keeping with
this tradition, Pensacola Christian College students
may not wear jackets, sweaters, or any other articles
of clothing which are identified with other
c. Denim

Tennis shoes are appropriate for casual dress,

junior year or be 21 years of age and have permission
of the Student Life Office to get married and remain a
student at the College.

[page 29]
Just as every other community must have policies
for the citizens to follow, so PCC has policies for
the overall well being of the PCC campus. Within
those policies or regulations, it is the desire of the
Board of Directors and Administration to have a
"clean," God-honoring student body where the students
can place their heads on their pillows each night with
clean hearts and minds before God. Within this
wholesome atmosphere, the student has the opportunity
to grow spiritually and mature in the Lord, to develop
personal responsibility, to select the right kind of
true friends, to excel academically, and to prepare
for Christian leadership. With these goals in mind,
the PCC policies are reinforced through a demerit
system, which we have found to be a reasonable system.
When a total of fewer than 15 demerits is received,
the demerits are canceled at the end of the semester.
Approximately 33 percent of all students receive fewer
than 15 demerits, which reflects the individual's
growth in self-discipline and personal responsibility.

1. Definition of Terms
a. Student Demerit Record
A student demerit record is a listing of the
number of demerits a student has accumulated. This
total is on the Individual Demerit List. The student
may also request his total at Discipline Committee or
from the Student Life Office.
b. Discipline Committee
The members of the Discipline Committee are
representatives of the Student Life Office and faculty
members who meet to hear the student's information on
a reported violation when the violation is of such a
nature not to jeopardize the student's enrollment in
the College. The student meets before the
representative who assesses the demerits or adjusts
some penalties according to the code listing. The
Discipline Committee is located in AC 411.
c. Student Court
The Student Court is an appeals court for
students desiring an appeal of the Discipline
Committee decision. Student Court meets each Wed.,
Thurs., and Fri. at 4 p.m. in AC 411. The court
includes a student, a faculty representative, and an
administrator from the Student Life Office.
d. Appeals Committee
The Appeals Committee is for a student whose
number of possible demerits would subject him to
dismissal from the College. Committee members will
include those who normally participate in the College
discipline program, as well as those who are not in
its day-by-day function, including a representative of
the student body. This committee is called into being
by the Student Life Office when they become aware that
a student may reach 150 demerits. The student may
appear before the Appeals Committee to present his
case. Once the student presents his information, the
Appeals Committee then must act on the evidence and
inform the student of the consequences of his action.
e. Campused List
A list of campused and socialed students (see #3,
p. 30) is entered into the computer each Friday

2. How the Demerit System Works--When a student
violates College regulations, he is reported to the
Discipline Committee by means of a demerit slip.
Each Fri. afternoon the "check-out" computers in
the residence halls and the DC computer in the Library
will be updated for the current demerits coming
through Discipline Committee. Each student is
responsible to check his DC listing by scanning their
PCC Card each weekend to determine if he must attend
If a student required to attend fails to appear
before the Discipline Committee, he will receive
demerits for being absent from Discipline Committee.
If a student has demerits coming through DC which
he feels are not accurate but which do not

[page 30]
require him to attend DC, the student must attend DC
that same week to appeal those demerits.
Form time to time, a student may feel he has been
wrongfully assessed demerits at the Discipline
Committee. The student may set up an appointment at
the Student Life Office, and if the administrator
determines the student was given demerits unfairly, he
may cancel or reduce the number of demerits. If the
student still feels he has not been dealt with fairly,
he may submit within one week a written explanation of
his case to the Office of Collegian Activities
receptionist to bring before the Student Court. The
Student Court will consider the appeal and make a
final decision.
There are times when the Student Life Office must
deal with a situation immediately rather than allow
the demerit system to run its course. When this
occurs, the student will be called in to give an
explanation for his actions. If the infraction falls
within specified demerit guidelines, these demerits
are assessed. The student again has the option of
appealing to the Deans, and if another appeal is
desired, may appeal in writing to the Dean of Student
Life, who will present the appeal to the Student
Court. If it appears a student is entitled to 150 or
more demerits, an appointment may be set up with the
Appeals Committee whereby the student may personally
appeal and thereby await the Appeals Committee.

3. Disciplinary Action--Whenever students behave
inappropriately with members of the opposite sex, they
are "socialed." For two weeks they may not
communicate with anyone of the opposite sex. The
student signs a form stating he will abide by this
When a student accumulates 50 demerits, a letter
is sent home to his parents, informing them why he has
received those demerits.
When a student accumulates 75 demerits, he is
"campused" for two weeks and may not leave campus
except for work responsibilities. The student is
required to sign a form stating that he will comply by
not going off campus. At 75 demerits, a student may
also be removed from elected offices that he may hold.
At 100 demerits, he is again campused for two
weeks. If a student accumulates 100 demerits for two
consecutive semesters, he is denied reenrollment the
following semester. At 125 demerits, he is campused a
third time for two weeks. Students who receive 150
demerits in a semester will be dismissed from the
College. Students who are dismissed must follow a
withdrawal process conducted by the Student Life
Office. Dismissed students are required to leave
campus within 24 hours.

4. Possible Dismissal--When a student is perceived
by the Administration to have been involved in
disciplinary problems that could result in possible
dismissal, he is placed with a floorleader until the
disciplinary situation has been thoroughly
investigated and resolved and the student is either
allowed to remain on campus as a student or is asked
to leave. Students in this position may not
communicate with persons other than the floorleader
and may not make phone calls, with the exception of
calling parents or legal guardians.

5. Communication with Pastor/Parents--The College
reserves the right, at its discretion, to communicate
with a student's parents and/or pastor on any
situation involving a student.

Pensacola Christian College is dedicated to
excellence in academics and committed to training
young adults for Christian service, regardless of
their chosen vocation. Therefore, it is assumed that
your primary purpose for attending college is to
become well-prepared for life and your chosen
vocation. Naturally, in college a large portion of
your time will be spent in academic pursuits. Since
the Lord has given you the opportunity to attend
college, satisfactory academic achievement is
important not only to please the Lord, but also for
your continuation in college.
The information provided concerning academic life
is to help you understand how the academic program
functions at Pensacola Christian College. Being aware
of the following academic information will help
prevent misunderstandings. Additional academic
information may be found in the current college

Grade reports are issued at midterm and after
semester final examinations. Midterm grades are not
entered on the student's permanent record. The grade
report will include the letter grade you have earned,
the number of credit hours you have completed, the
grade points you have received, your grade point
average for the semester, and your cumulative grade
point average. If you think there is a discrepancy on
your grade report, it is your responsibility to
contact the course instructor through a written letter
addressed to the Registrar.

1. Grade Symbols and Codes--"A" indicates a SUPERIOR
grade. It indicates a high degree of attainment and
reflects independent work, originality, completeness
and accuracy of knowledge, as well as effective use of

"B" indicates GOOD work, which is considered
achievement considerably above the accepted standard.
It involves taking the initiative to produce quality
work, the ability to organize work, and the ability to
comprehend, retain, and apply subject matter.

"C" indicates AVERAGE work. It is the average
grade earned by a student of normal ability who allows
an appropriate amount of time for his studies and who
puts forth consistent effort.

"D" indicates a PASSING grade. It denotes a
limited knowledge of the subject matter, and the work
falls below the acceptable standard in quality or
quantity. However this grade is sufficient to be
counted in the hours for graduation if it is balance
by good or superior work in other courses. Normally,
a "D" grade is not transferable to other colleges.

"F" indicates a FAILING grade. It represents an
inadequate attainment and signifies that the student
is not capable of doing the work or has made little or
no effort to do so.

I-incomplete P-passed
W-withdrew AU-audit
WF-withdrew failing NG-no grade
WU=withdrew auditing CR-credit

2. Grade Point System--Each letter grade a student
earns is worth a numerical value called grade points.
Grade points are assigned according to the following

Grade Grade points
A = 4 per credit hour
B = 3 per credit hour
C = 2 per credit hour
D = 1 per credit hour
F = 0 per credit hour
WF = 0 per credit hour
*I = 0 per credit hour

W, P, AU, NG CR = 0 grade points
(These are not computed in the grade point average)

*When a student completes the work for the course, the
"incomplete" is erased and the student's grace point
average is adjusted accordingly. All "incompletes"
must be made up before the first day of midterms the
following semester.

3. Grade Point Average (GPA)--For graduation a
student must earn a 2.00, "C" grade point average at
Pensacola Christian College. The GPA is simply a
numerical measure of a student's overall academic
achievement. The grade point average is found by
dividing total grade points earned by total credit
hours taken. The procedures on p. 33 are used in
computing the GPA.

[page 33]
When a course is repeated, the highest grade is
calculated into the grade point average.

Procedure for computing GPA
Grade Credit Grade
Course Points Hours Point
No. Grade Earned Attempted Totals
BI 101 A 4 X 2 = 8
EN 101 C 2 X 3 = 6
HI 101 B 3 X 3 = 9
MA 111 B 3 X 3 = 9
PE 101 A 4 X 1 = 4
SP 101 C 2 X 3 = 6
___ ___
15 42
Grade Point Average: 42/ 15 = 2.80

4. Grade Point Deficiency--Students are routinely
informed of a grade point deficiency (grade point
average less than the 2.00 required for graduation).
This information is based on course work taken at
Pensacola Christian College and is not affected by
transfer work.

5. Classification--A student's classification is
determined by the number of credit hours he has
earned, not attempted (including transfer credit).
The number of credit hours needed to attain each
classification is listed in the current college

6. Graduation--Seniors and all other upcoming
graduates bear complete responsibility for having
earned the proper credits and sufficient grade points
for graduation.

7. Academic Honors
a. Semester Scholastic Honors--The Registrar's
office will publish the President's List of those
students who achieve a grade point average of 4.00 for
the semester grading period and a Dean's List of those
students who achieve a grade point average of 3.00 or
higher for the semester grading period. A student
must be carrying a minimum of 12 credit hours and must
not have any "Incompletes," "Ds," "Fs," or "WFs" for
that semester in order to qualify for these honors.
b. Graduation Scholastic Honors--To qualify for
academic honors, a student must have earned at least a
3.50 grade point average for his entire academic
record, have completed at least 60 hours at Pensacola
Christian College, and have completed all graduation
requirements for a four-year degree. The scholastic
honors are as follows:
Cum laude--3.50-3.69 grade point average
Magna cum laude--3.70-3.84 grade point average
Summa cum laude--3.85-4.00 grade point average

Each student's academic achievement is recorded
on a permanent record which is kept in the Records
Office. A student who submits a signed request will
receive a copy of his permanent record. The first
transcript or copy of a student's academic record will
be issued without charge. Any additional copies will
be issued at a fee of $5.50 each. The Records Office
will not issue any transcripts of a student's record
for any student whose account is not paid in full.


1. Class Attendance--All students taking a course
are expected to attend all scheduled classes.
Students missing more than a week of scheduled classes
automatically lose one full letter grade; students
missing more than two weeks receive "F" for the course
unless otherwise exempted by the Administration.

2. Because of concentrated semesters and Interterm
break in January, class cuts are not granted.


1. From a Course--To withdraw from a class, a
student must obtain written permission from the
Registrar and submit it to the Records office. For a
student to change his major, he must obtain written
permission from the Registrar and submit it to the
Records Office.
To drop a course without receiving a failing
grade, a student must withdraw from the course by the
end of the first four weeks of the semester. Courses
dropped after this time will show a grade of "WF." A
drop fee will be charged.

2. From the College--After a student has enrolled in
the College, any action that would cause the student
to leave the College before routine completion of the
semester (voluntary or involuntary) will be considered
a withdrawal.
A student whose circumstances force him to
withdraw from college must have a withdrawal form
properly executed by the Student Life Office during
regular office hours. Refunds from a student's PCC
Card will be put on the student's account. PCC Cards
will be collected from the student and destroyed upon
withdrawal. The student should contact AmSouth Bank
for a replacement ATM card.
If the withdrawal is deemed honorable by the
Student Life Office and if all financial obligations
have been met, the student's permanent record will
show an honorable withdrawal and a grade of "W."
Unregistered withdrawals and other dishonorable
withdrawals will show a dishonor-

[page 33]
able withdrawal and a grade of "W." A student who
does not follow proper procedures will be given a
dishonorable withdrawal. Students who become involved
with civil authority or the law in such a manner that
the College deems it reflects upon the College's
Christian testimony will be required to withdraw from
the institution. A student who finds it necessary to
withdraw from the college should consult the current
college catalog for the college policy regarding


1. Originality of Work
a. Cheating--Dishonesty of any kind, including
cheating, is a clear contradiction of Scriptural
principles and will not be tolerated. Any student who
cheats may place his continued college enrollment in
jeopardy and will be dealt with by the Discipline
Any student who cheats on a midterm or final
examination will be dismissed.
b. Plagiarism is academic dishonesty; it is the
failure to give proper credit in the acceptable manner
for the work of another. Any work submitted by a
student in any course is expected to be his own unless
proper credit is given to the source. Any student who
plagiarizes will receive a zero for the work and will
be dealt with by the Discipline Committee.

2. Typing of Papers--The College standard for
appropriate style and form for term papers is found in
Kate Turabian's A Manual for Writers (6th Edition).
Each student should be familiar with the guidelines in
this book and should follow those guidelines when
writing term papers.
Those who type papers for other students are
expected to reproduce copy verbatim. Corrections,
whether grammatical, spelling, or otherwise, should be
done by the author.
Students should not ask office personnel to do
any typing for them.

Students will have use of the computing resources
of Pensacola Christian College. Copyright laws and
licensing agreements govern the computer software used
on these resources.
Under United States copyright laws, no person may
duplicate or distribute a work without the express
permission of the author(s). Commercial software
vendors do not generally grant permission to duplicate
their products; however, there are two categories of
software which do allow copying and distribution of
the product: public domain and "shareware."
Pensacola Christian College stringently obeys
these laws and agreements. Students having access to
PCC computer resources must adhere to general
copyright laws and licensing agreements as well as
this Code of Computer Ethics:

1. It is unlawful for any student to make copies of
computer software that is owned by the College.

2. Any program designated by the author(s) as
"shareware" may be freely copied and distributed
according to the express permission of the author(s).
If a student continues to use a program, he is
expected to register that program with the author(s)
by paying a fee. Students continuing to use
unregistered shareware products may be in violation of
United States copyright law.

3. It is wrong to tamper with someone else's
computer. If you have permission to use another
machine, make sure that you leave everything the way
you found it.

Pensacola Christian College subscribes to this
Code of Computer Ethics and requires that all students
adhere to it completely.


1. Availability to Advise--Faculty will be glad to
help you with any academic problem during their posted
office hours or by special agreement. However, we ask
our students to remember that faculty offices are
private and are designed to be used for business
purposes. Faculty are not available during midterm or
final examinations to discuss grades or help students
study; these matters should be taken care of before
exam week.

2. Appropriate Attitude--Students should exemplify a
Christian spirit of kindness and courtesy in their
dealings with other students and a Biblical respect
for authority in their relationships with faculty and
staff. Insubordinate, rude, or discourteous speech
has no place in the Christian life. Faculty and staff
are to be addressed by their appropriate titles (Dr.,
Mr., Mrs., Miss, Dean). "Brother" and "Sister" are
not considered appropriate college titles. Students
are not permitted to attend faculty/staff social
functions, such as parties, showers, etc., or vice

Searching for wisdom, striving for truth,
Yielding to God the strength of our youth,
Seeking for knowledge, standing for the right-
Looking to Jesus, walking in His light.

Saved by His mercy, kept by His grace,
Seeking his perfect will to embrace;
Led by His spirit, called by His great name,
Knowing that Jesus, ever is the same.

Praising the Savior, lifting our voice,
Held by His love, our hearts shall rejoice.
Blessing and honor to the Lord belong;
His praise shall be the beauty of our song.

Strength comes form God, in Him will we trust;
Truth is His word, eternal and just;
Beauty declares the goodness of the Lord:
He is exalted, worshipped, and adored.

Give us the strength to follow Thy Word;
Help us to use the truth we have heard.
Grand us Thy wisdom, beauty now to see-
Then shall our hearts be centered, Lord, in Thee.

And we'll get this victory.
