Interlaced with humor based on a parody of "The China Syndrome," this five-part handbook provides Prince George's Community College (PGCC) students with a summary of college policies, procedures, and orientation information. Part I presents a short history of the college and general information pertaining to its accreditation, board of trustees, student governance board, staff and faculty organization, physical facilities, and commitment to non-discrimination. Part II describes various college services, including the Student Affairs Division, admission and testing, records and registration, the Department of Human Development, financial aid, career planning and placement, the Veterans Affairs Office, child care, campus security, books and supplies, health services, the learning resources center, and the Student Activities Office. Part III outlines the educational programs offered at PGCC and identifies instructional services, such as telecredit courses, weekend college, courses by newspaper, extension and degree centers, and community services; and reviews policies related to degree requirements, grading, and transfer of credit. Part IV discusses student organizations and publications, and Part V examines college regulations regarding general conduct, use of alcoholic beverages, traffic, athletics, and building use and contains the constitutions of two campus organizations.
