How to be a Blue Hose

Future Blue Hose,

On behalf of the entire Blue Hose community, congratulations on your acceptance to Presbyterian College. Admittance into PC is no easy task, so you should feel great pride in your accomplishment. You may be surprised to know that the two of us have something in common. I, like you, had the opportunity to join the PC family. And after much debate, I decided to accept the College’s offer, recognizing the worth of PC’s academic reputation, size, and community.

The years since graduating from PC have revealed one thing to me: I cannot picture myself graduating from any other institution. Unfortunately, my four years as a PC student flew by in the blink of an eye – as time seems to do – but I cherished every moment of my time in Clinton. The College gave me so much – it provided me with confidence in my abilities and a better understanding of myself and my aspirations; it presented me with opportunities that enabled me to learn and grow as a leader, which now greatly benefit me in my role as the president of Presbyterian College. But I am most thankful for this – PC gave me a college home.

I look forward to welcoming you to campus in March at Accepted Students Day. Until then, let me leave you with one piece of advice that I gave to my children, two of whom ended up choosing PC, as they searched for the perfect college: find your home away from home. I wish you the best as you decide where that will be for you.

Listen carefully because PC just might be calling you home.

On, On PC!

Step 3: Apply for Financial Aid

In order to qualify for federal loans and need-based grant programs, we suggest you:

  1. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at
  2. Add Presbyterian College (FAFSA Code: 003445) to your list of FAFSA recipients.

We encourage you to complete your FAFSA by February 1, the Priority date. Doing so ensures that you will receive your completed financial aid package by March 1.

Step 4: Submit $400 Enrollment Deposit

The enrollment deposit is due no later than May 1, the National Candidates’ Reply Date. You’ll receive your PC email shortly after your deposit is paid. Later in the spring, your deposit unlocks your access to academic advising, class registration, and your housing assignment.

Use one of the following methods to pay your $400 non-refundable enrollment deposit:

  1. Pay through our online payment portal. This will allow you to pay with an e-check or credit card.
  2. Don’t want to use our online payment system? You can send a check made payable to Presbyterian College to the following address:
    • Office of Admissions
      Presbyterian College
      503 South Broad Street, Clinton, SC 29325

That’s it. We think this would be an appropriate time for you to #cuethebagpipes, fellow Blue Hose.

Step 5: Find Roommate

Once you submit your enrollment deposit, the Office of Residence Life will provide your login credentials for Please Don’t Snore, our roommate matching system. Think of Please Don’t Snore as online dating – you create a profile highlighting your academic/extracurricular interests, study habits, and sleeping preferences. The system will take that information and match you with potential compatible roommates. You then can determine which of your matches would be the best candidate to become your roommate/BFF. Visit the new student housing page for a timeline surrounding the housing process.

Step 6: Register for New Student Orientation

Two overnight sessions are offered to introduce you to PC. The first session will be held June 18-19, and the second session will be held June 28-29. Please note that Orientation is required for all new students. Registration will be available late spring.

Step 7: Submit Final High School Transcripts

After graduation, be sure to send your final transcript and any necessary paperwork to or to the following address:

Office of Admissions
Presbyterian College
503 South Broad Street, Clinton, SC 29325

Step 8: Connect with Academic Adviser

Typically, your adviser will connect with you via email during the summer, so make sure to check your PC email continually.

Step 9: Pack for PC

Wondering what you should and shouldn’t bring to campus? All your questions regarding on-campus living can be found on the Office of Residence Life website.

Step 10: Move to PC

On Saturday, August 18, PC faculty, staff, and students will help you move into your new home away from home. Don’t forget to order a parking pass!
