Academic and Personal Support

We understand that it can be often challenging to balance the rigors of the PCOM academic curricula with other factors in our students' lives.

PCOM students are intelligent and passionate individuals, who in addition to their dedication to their academic-professional goals are very devoted to a variety of community and societal issues.

To support our students in reaching their goals, the office of student affairs on each campus coordinates access to a variety of academic and personal support services.

Academic Support and Resources

As a student at PCOM, you will benefit from an academic support system that is proactive in providing anticipated resources. PCOM faculty members are available to provide help and support. In addition, seminars on study strategies and learning styles, as well as peer mentoring are provided to students on both campuses. The PCOM, PCOM Georgia and PCOM South Georgia libraries also provide many online and on-campus academic resources to help students be successful in their courses.

Academic Enrichment Programs

Academic enrichment programs are developed to promote academic excellence for all of our students as they adapt their study skills and personal habits to the rigor of professional school. We recognize that the amount of information and the fast pace of the curriculum can present difficulties for many students. The demands may require drastic changes to the study habits. Academic success can be achieved through changes in the way in which students approach their learning early on in the academic term. Student Affairs provides resources and programs to assist students in reaching their goals including:

  • Time management resources - Managing your time efficiently to accomplish your goals is the number one key to academic success. 
  • Study strategies - Maximize your learning by adopting the Smart Study Cycle. Learn better and remember longer by practicing spaced repetition, interleaving, retrieval and self-testing. Additional information can be found on myPCOM.
  • Peer tutoring program - Offered by Student Affairs, the mission of the peer tutoring program is to promote academic excellence for all of our students. 

Visit the Academic Resources page on myPCOM to learn more about our academic enrichment programs, access additional resources and sign up for peer tutoring.

Learning or Physical Disability Accommodations

PCOM is committed to meeting the accommodation needs of students who provide appropriate documentation to support their accommodation requests.

Please email the coordinator of disability services with any questions you may have at disabilityservices@pcom.edu.

Personal Advice and Counseling

Student affairs staff members are available at each PCOM location to provide support and guidance for our students. Resources include personal counseling services and workshops on managing stress and balancing competing priorities. It is important for our students to know that we are always available, and that assisting them in reaching their academic goals and achieving personal success are our priority.
