  • Fall and Spring: Full Term (16 weeks), Fall/Spring I (8 weeks) and Fall/Spring II (8 weeks)
  • Summer: Full Term (8 weeks), Summer I (4 weeks) and Summer II (4 weeks)

Curriculum and total instructional time are the same regardless of the length of the term.

College Closures

Closure/Delayed Start due to Weather

Pueblo Community College makes every effort to remain open and hold classes as scheduled.  Decisions to close or delay due to weather will be made based on current and predicted weather and road conditions. When there is reasonable evidence that inclement weather has created or is expected to create hazardous travel conditions, the College President or Chief Business Officer (in absence of the President) may announce a campus closure.

Closure/Delayed Start due to other Emergency

Closures/delayed starts due to other emergencies are determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the nature of the emergency. The College President or Chief Business Officer (in absence of the President) will announce a campus closure and act in accordance with the Emergency Operations Plan.  Staff and Faculty should follow procedures found in the Emergency Procedures Guide (flip chart located in all offices and classrooms) and assist students in vacating college facilities.

Communication Procedure for Closures

When possible, the decision to close a campus or delay the start of classes/opening of offices will be made by 6 a.m. or earlier for full-day closures or delayed starts and by 3 p.m. or earlier for the early closure of a campus or cancellation of evening classes (classes starting at or after 5 p.m.).

MyPCC Alert is the main communication delivery method for announcements regarding a closure/delayed start. The College will also communicate via the College website, Facebook, Twitter and through local television stations, when possible.

Resuming Classes in the event of a Delayed Start

When a delayed start is in effect, all classes starting prior to the delayed start time will be canceled in full.  For instance, if a campus has announced a delayed start time of 10 a.m., any classes with a start time occurring prior to 10 a.m. will be canceled in full even if the class would still be in progress after 10 a.m.

Classes/Events in Progress in the event of an early Closure

The College will make every attempt to give ample notice of an early closure; however, in cases of emergencies, this may not be possible. Faculty, instructors and staff must adhere to the procedures detailed in the Emergency Procedures Guide in the event of a sudden early closure due to an emergency.
