PPCC is a good school for high school students seeking dual enrollment credits, adults going back to school to work for a degree, or your high school graduate trying to figure out what career/degree they hope to have or any student trying to save money. I've enjoyed my time here for sure. The facility has been great and nothing but kind for me, even though I'm still in high school and attending a 4 year university next year. I would recommend trying to get classes at the Rampart campus (it's newer with overall nicer facilities) if possible. There also isn't a whole lot of campus related activities (there are a few throughout the year, but student life really isn't a thing at PPCC). Overall, it's a great community/junior college!

Love the amount of degrees and resources available here! The people I have met so far have been amazing and helpful. There is such a variety of people, resources, and classes to become part of. Enrollment, Advisors, and Financial Aid all seem to be easy to access and helpful!
My experience with Pikes Peak community college has been mostly positive. As a student in a transfer program I have discovered significant pools of support and resources for my area of study and the interests I have. PPCC hosts many events and workshops to support students such as financial support, extra tutoring and homework workshops, and cultural inclusion for diverse populations. There have been some hiccups with instructors and accommodating personal crisis' of students can be improved. but overall I have had a lovely time with this school.
