Forty-two student handbooks from Pitt Community College have been added to our site thanks to our partnership with the school. These handbooks range from 1965 to 2018 and include course offerings, administrative information, and photos of student life.

According to the school history section in the 1980-82 handbook, Pitt was chartered as an industrial education center in 1961 and officially designated Pitt Technical Institute in 1964 (one year before this batch of handbooks begins). 

The most recent handbook in this batch, which is from 2018-2019, seems to have a greater focus on informational text than years past. With so many additional programs and services, maybe it’s no wonder that it clocks in at a whopping 308 pages compared to the 1965 version’s 140.

You can see the full batch of handbooks from Pitt Community college here. You can also browse our full collection of college handbooks by school and date within our North Carolina Yearbooks collection.
