How to be a Blue Hose

As you’ve already realized, the search for the perfect college can become a little redundant. You hear the same things over and over again: student-teacher ratios, average class sizes, study abroad destinations, internship opportunities, etc. This redundancy can make it difficult for you to determine what makes a school different from all the other colleges and universities that dot the globe.

We have small classes, numerous South Carolina Professors of the Year and a sterling academic reputation. Impressive, right? But do these items make us different from all the other schools on your list? Not quite.

So what makes us different? One of our recent graduates captured what sets PC apart beautifully:

“Everyone takes a journey, but what makes PC different is that you don’t take that journey alone.”

Pack your bags, grab your blue hose, and take the journey with us.

Step 1: Apply for Financial Aid

In order to qualify for federal loans and need-based grant programs, we suggest you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). 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 2: Reply to Your Offer of Admission

Once you decide you are ready to be a Blue Hose, log in to the student portal. Then scroll to the bottom of the page to the section labeled “Forms” and click on “Reply to Offer of Admission.” Now, select “Accept Offer” and sign your name. Get excited! It’s almost official!

Step 3: Submit Your Enrollment Deposit

Once you accept your offer of admission in the previous step, you’ll be prompted to pay your non-refundable enrollment deposit using your credit or debit card.

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 Admission
Presbyterian College
503 South Broad Street, Clinton, SC 29325

You’ll receive your PC email after you submit your deposit. Later in the spring, your enrollment deposit unlocks your access to academic advising, class registration and your housing assignment.

Congratulations! Welcome to the PC family!

Step 6: Find a 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.

Step 7: Register for New Student Orientation

Overnight sessions are offered in June and July to introduce you to PC. Please note that New Student Orientation is required for all new students. Registration will be available late spring, so stay tuned.

Step 8: Submit Final Transcripts

After graduation, be sure to send your final transcript and any necessary paperwork to admissions@presby.edu or to the following address:

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

Step 9: 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 10: 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 11: Move to PC

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