PCC @ John Muir High School

  • In 2016 PCC opened a satellite campus on the campus of John Muir High School.  The site currently offers college credit classes taught by PCC faculty for the general public after school hours; John Muir students are able to take these classes as concurrently enrolled students at little to no cost. Many students are already taking advantage of this opportunity!

    Please inquire with your son/daughter's counselor to enroll in PCC classes. They will be happy to assist you!

    How to add a class on or after the First Class Meeting: If the semester has started, it may not be too late to still add a class! You may add courses only during the course official “Add” period, subject to Course limitation and restrictions, by following the below procedure. An add code is required to add any class on or after the first class meeting. Add codes are given out by the instructor, and will be issued first to students whose names appear on the waitlist roster. 

    Get permission from the course's instructor to add the course. If the instructor gives you permission, he/she will give you a Late Add Code.

     

     

     

    1. Remember that you will still need to clear prerequisites through the Prerequisite Office if necessary.
    2. Use the Late Add Code given by your instructor to register in LancerPoint
    3. Follow the add deadlines stated in the semester academic calendar or under the CRN in the online Schedule of Classes.
    4. If you miss the add deadline, you may submit a petition for Late Enrollment that will require supporting documentation and the signature of both your instructor and the division dean.
