Program Requirements Under the Catalog
Students are admitted into the College under the program requirements in the Catalog in effect at the time of admission. They remain with those program requirements throughout their enrollment at PCE. However, if students withdraw, are administratively withdrawn, or dismissed and wish to return to the College, they will return under the program requirements in the Catalog in effect at the time of re-admission or re-entry.

Program requirements may change over time and these will be reflected in a Catalog or Addendum. Students may request to move to a more recent Catalog by sending an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
