Information for New Students

​​​​​​​​​​Am I required to bring my own computer?

While the vast majority of PC students have their own computers, it is not required by the college. If you wish to bring a computer to campus, please see our Computer Recommendations and Requirements​. Students in the School of Business should see the PCSB Laptop Recommendations.

What software does the college provide to students?

Please see our Software Availability page ​fo​r more info.​

When will I receive my PC email account information?

This information is mailed out by mid-May. See our Student Email Information page for more info.

Is there on-campus support for my computer?

Yes! Please see information about our ResNet​ support program.​

​Should I bring a printer?

​​Most students do not bring a printer to campus. With 34 printers, both black and white​ and color, around campus available for student use, there is little need for a personal printer. Every student is given a printing balance, called PC Prints​, of $40 at the beginning of each semester.​ This amount is plenty for the majority of students.​
