The curriculum will be based on the needs of the College district and will comply with national, state, and local accrediting requirements.


Curriculum development and changes originate at the department level. Recommendations for new courses may come from instructors, administrators, or interested groups. Proposals for new courses or changes should be submitted on a completed Curriculum Proposal form to the Chair of the Instructional Council.

The Instructional Council will meet to review the current curriculum and make recommendations for additions, deletions, or revisions in the College curriculum. Recommendations are then forwarded as designated on the form.

The appropriate instructional administrator will take the necessary action for placing approved curriculum into effect. This includes placing written information in the appropriate publications.

Pearl River Community College hosts a variety of online courses each semester. PRCC may host college approved courses offered by the Mississippi Virtual Community College (MSVCC). However, approval to place any course on the PRCC schedule for a particular semester shall be determined by the Dean of eLearning and by the Senior Vice President for Instruction/Provost. A listing of current course offerings is posted on the PRCC web site. A complete listing of online courses offered through the MSVCC can be accessed at
