Pima Community College Reviews

I enjoy the atmosphere of Pima Community College. The nursing program is challenging in so many ways and everyone I have come into contact with has only pushed me to do my best. Before I started, a mentor for the program told a group of us, "if you're failing, you've waited to long to get help." All of the instructors are nurses themselves and they want to see everyone in the program succeed. The only default I have come into contact with at PCC is the financial aid department. They denied my FAFSA and when I met with 3 separate people, not one of them could tell me why I was being denied FAFSA. That part has been extremely frustrating. Although, I would recommend the nursing program to anyone!

The wide variety of classes one can attend, coupled with guidance in the form of free tutoring and advising for all departments, makes this a fantastic institute! I would urge any Tucson residents to start college off here and learn the ropes of college before starting any big University. Tuition at PCC is delightfully affordable.
There are many degree programs offered through Pima Community College. In my experience, the instructors have been extremely helpful and invested in their students' success. They are usually quick to respond to emails whenever questions may arise and they are very understanding and professional. There is an amazing resource at each campus that provides tutors for numerous subjects at no cost to the students. If I were to change anything about this school, it would be the fact that the east campus cafe was closed down. Having a decent place for students to purchase food and beverages between classes and studying can be extremely beneficial.
