Reference: Administrative, Educational Programs
Pearl River Community College will enforce and abide by the Mississippi Community College Board handbook in regard to recruiting.
Pearl River Community College does not invite participation from outside of this community college district in activities that would serve the purpose of recruitment. Pearl River Community College personnel will not contact groups or individuals from outside the College’s respective district for the purpose of influencing students to attend this college. With the exception of athletics, the College is directed as follows:
- Pearl River Community College will not conduct or participate in recruitment events or other activities in another community/junior college district. This includes recruiting by mail. In reference to mail, the College has the right to reply to any request from prospective students when they request information by mail. However, Pearl River Community College will not acquire mailing lists for students outside our recruiting district for general mass mailing or other means of solicitation.
- Only invitations issued for regional or statewide career fairs, health fairs, or related activities associated with and/or sponsored by the university system and/or agencies of the state may be accepted. Invitations will not be accepted for out-of-district high school visits, band performances, performing groups, athletic events, or any other such activity that is not sponsored by the Mississippi Community College Board. Exceptions for these types of recruiting activities, and regional/statewide events must have the written approval of the president in whose district the event or activity is to occur. Appeals of this policy are made directly to the Executive Director of the Mississippi Community College Board (MCCB) and from the Executive Director to the executive committee of the MCCB; and from that appeal level to the MCCB 15-member presidential body. The decision of that body shall be final.
