GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT INFORMATION
The US Department of Education requires colleges to disclose a variety of information for any financial aid eligible program that “prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation." The information provided here is the best available to us but represents one year’s data only. However, we hope that this information is helpful to our current students and to prospective students as they make their career and educational choices.

PCC grants Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Science (AS), Associate of General Studies (AGS), and Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees. PCC also grants Certificates of Completion (CERT).
PCC’s programs are approved by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education (CCHE), which approves degrees, and by the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education (SBCCOE), which approves certificates. The PCC Curriculum and Academic Standards Committee reviews and approves new programs, or changes to existing programs, before they are forwarded to these agencies for approval.
Each program requires a major area of concentration comprising a defined sequence of courses. An Associate degree requires a minimum of 60 semester hours, and a certificate requires a minimum of two courses.
General Education courses are a part of every degree program regardless of course of study; these courses impart common knowledge, intellectual concepts, and attitudes that every educated person should possess.
The general education courses for the AA, AS, generalist AGS, and AAS degrees are identified in the general education curriculum of each of those degrees. The AGS technical pre-professional transfer degrees in Accounting, Business Management, Computer Information Systems, Criminal Justice, Early Childhood Education, and Mass Communications have particular general education requirements within each degree.
No designation of an emphasis area or concentration may appear on a transcript or diploma, other than"Liberal Studies."
