     In order to be admitted as an academic, technical, or career student, the following documents must be submitted:

1. PRCC Application for Admission
2. Official transcript from an accredited high school indicating date of graduation or GED test transcript indicating passing
3. Official transcript from every college attended (if applicable)
4. ACT scores for academic or technical students (See Admission Testing). Students taking classes at Pearl River Community College are classified in one of three broad areas of instruction with regard to their educational goals, Academic Students, Technical Students, and Career Students.

Notification of Admission Status
     After a completed application is received, PRCC develops an admission file on the student and begins correspondence indicating receipt of documents and/or deficiencies. All students, regardless of full or part-time status, must meet admission requirements prior to registration for classes. A letter of acceptance or denial will be mailed to all applicants after all admission criteria have been met.
All students who have met admission requirements will be considered for admission to the college. However, admission to the college does not guarantee admission to a specific program. Students must determine the requirements for admission to a specific program to see if they are eligible to enroll in that program. Specific questions concerning admission to the college or to a specific program of study should be directed to the Office of Admissions.
