What are Educational Procedures?

Educational Procedures (EP's) are official college policies directly related to instruction. Developed by faculty and staff under the supervision of the Vice President of Instruction, EP's are developed, reviewed, and approved by faculty and administrators so as to provide process guidance and regulations for instruction at PPCC.

Current Educational Procedures

EP's are listed in numerical order and are posted as fully approved EP's after review and adoption by PPCC faculty and administrators.
