Dr. Lewis PhotographPearl River Community College is a proud and historic educational institution. As Mississippi’s first public two-year institution of higher learning, Pearl River has always been a leader in providing quality education to the citizens of our state. That tradition continues today with our commitment to providing the students of our college with a superior educational experience.

Of all the goals that our institution has set for itself, our focus on the success of our students is central to our mission. We are well aware of the changing world in which we live and the rapidly changing skills that are needed for success in the workplace. Pearl River Community College is focused on providing our students with the knowledge and skills they need in order to be successful in life.

Our college is continually evaluating and reorganizing to meet the needs of our students. Whether you choose to enroll in classes on the main campus in Poplarville, at the Forrest County Center in Hattiesburg, at other extension sites located in the college district or, take classes through distance learning opportunities offered via the Internet, the faculty and staff at Pearl River is committed to providing quality educational services.

Please remember that our students are the focus of all that we do. We welcome the opportunity to have you as a student at our college and look forward to your success.
