Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Science and Mathematics is to prepare future science, technology, and engineering and mathematics professionals for tomorrow’s workforce, to support the preparation of allied health professionals, and to provide quality academic transfer courses.

Suggested Plans

A student who plans to obtain a degree from Panola College should arrange his or her program at the College to meet the requirements of the particular senior college to which the student plans to transfer. An academic advisor will work with a student to develop a degree plan which agrees with the requirements of the student’s field of study and declared transfer institution. Academic programs at Panola College that lead to the Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees require a minimum of 60 hours, but a student can plan to transfer additional hours to a senior institution. The College’s academic core contains 42 hours and is the basis for all academic degrees available at the College.

Notification to Students of Transfer Limitations: Be aware that limits exist on the number of lower-division (freshman and sophomore) courses that Texas public universities accept in transfer. In many cases, the maximum number of lower-division semester credit hours accepted in transfer is 66, although some universities may accept slightly more in special cases. It is the responsibility of each student to keep apprised of graduation requirements for a certificate or degree program in which he or she is enrolled. Students planning a program of study should do so in conjunction with a College mentor, following a suggested program of study printed in this catalog.

Degree Audit: Each returning student should be certain to print a degree audit from his/her on-line student file prior to registration. This degree audit will indicate to the student those courses completed, those courses in progress and those courses yet to be taken. The audit will also indicate the student’s grade point average.
