Let me be the first to welcome you to Pueblo Community College and express my sincere pleasure in your desire to achieve a higher education in an environment that provides quality academics and student support. Our faculty and staff are prepared to fully support you – at PCC you can expect more and you will get more. Our road map for programs, workforce development, community education, and student success has been designed with each student in mind.
PCC is a comprehensive community college and one of 13 schools that form the Colorado Community College System – the largest system of higher education in the state. Our service area spans more than 11,000 square miles and includes not only the main campus in Pueblo but branch campuses in Canon City and Mancos, in addition to a site in Durango. If the traditional classroom and schedule do not fit your needs, PCC is pleased to offer hybrid and online learning options. We are a Hispanic-Serving Institution; diversity is welcome and respected.
In addition, we offer valuable resources to all PCC students:
Learning services include free tutoring, learning groups, study skills enhancement, test-taking strategies and accelerated basic skills development. These programs are not extras; rather, they are key paths to success. Your participation may allow you to take a higher course load and finish your program of study faster and may also significantly reduce academic stress.
Financial assistance includes scholarship guidance, loan programs and one-on-one counseling to help you complete the necessary applications. PCC also offers numerous opportunities for financial support. Funds are available to help meet the needs of students and generally require simple applications, but to be eligible you must apply by specific deadlines.
Academic, career and transfer advising are your road maps in your academic journey. Seek guidance early and often to keep on the most direct path to success. Our advisors will help you develop plans that are guaranteed to transfer to your next school or lead directly into job placement.
Student services provide critical support and enrich your PCC experience. Some services provide crucial resources to help you stay in school – Project ACCESS, the Panther Student Pantry and peer mentoring are examples. Assistance in locating child care or transportation services is available through our partnerships with community agencies. Our health clinic in Pueblo provides access to a professional medical staff and discounted health services. Finally, involvement in our many student activities and clubs will help you become more connected and engaged in your PCC experience.
We encourage you to begin planning for success by scheduling a visit to one of our campuses and exploring the campus website. Please accept our heartfelt welcome to the PCC family.
With warm regards,
Patricia A. Erjavec, PhD
