Lynx - Pearl River Mass Notification System

Sign up for LYNX, PRCC's Mass Notification System...

We encourage you to have your student sign up for the PRCC Mass Notification System.  It is located within their Riverguide.  Students may enter multiple phone numbers.  They may put your number along with theirs.      
The PRCC Notification System is used to notify students, faculty and staff of vital information during the semester.  This system is generally used to notify you when the campus is closed due to severe weather.

Parking decals must be affixed to vehicles driven on campus to avoid traffic citations.  Students may not park on the grass, in reserved spaces or in designated handicapped spaces (unless handicapped). Students are only permitted to park in spaces marked with white lines.  Should the car the student has the decal affixed is out of service and another vehicle will be brought, please make sure the student notifies campus police to obtain a temporary permit. Students must register for their parking permits online. The student will be asked to provide their vehicle information such as tag number, make, model, etc. during the registration process.
Students will receive an e-mail on their PRCC student email account letting them know when decals are available and a link to the registration page.

Please follow us on our social sites to keep up-to-date on daily happenings on campus.  We are on Facebook - Pearl River Community College, Instagram - PRCC Wildcats; Twitter - PRCC_WildcatsPinterest - Pearl River Community College (lots of good college boards) and on LinkedIn - Pearl River Community College.

If you know of parents who would like to receive the newsletter, they may contact Carol Williams at or call 601-403-1287.  Soon a link will be created on the PRCC website where parents may sign up there. It will be under the  Community tab.
