  • Admissions & Records

    The Admissions Office is responsible for reviewing all applicants for admission, including international student admission, and finalizing admission to the College. The Admissions Office will notify all students of their admission status.


    PCC is authorized to offer courses to online students in all states except Massachusetts.  View the State Authorization for Online Classes for more info.

    How to drop/withdraw from classes
    To drop/withdraw from a class, log in to your MyPCC portal and click on the Add/Drop Classes icon on the Dashboard. You can also visit any campus registration station to additional help. Look at your detailed class schedule available on the Registration page in your MyPCC portal for drop and withdraw deadlines specific to each class. It is important to check with the Financial Aid Office regarding any outstanding balances and/or financial consequences.

    If you drop a course during the refund period of the course, you do not have to pay for the course. You can drop your course without penalty before 15 percent of the course duration has passed.

    Following the end of the refund period, you may withdraw from any course and receive a grade of “W” if you withdraw before the 80 percent of the course duration has passed. When you withdraw from a course, you must still pay tuition and fees.

    PCC has an open-door admission policy. This means we impose no admission requirements on you if you are 17 years of age or older.

    Apply online. There is no application fee and admission is open to anyone 17 or older. Colorado residents should also apply for the College Opportunity Fund. There is a 24-hour download time for an application to be processed

    CHECK INTO FINANCIAL AID

    Begin by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at fafsa.ed.gov/. The process takes six to eight weeks so start early! To learn more about scholarships, loans, grants and work-study opportunities, call 719.549.3200.

    Returning Students

    If you are a former PCC student who has not attended PCC for one year or more, you must complete an Application for Re-Admission. We will ask you to update your previous application and provide additional residency and/or transfer documentation.

    Transfer Students

    A transfer student is a student who has attended another college or university and are seeking admissions to PCC for the first time. If you are pursuing a degree or certificate and wish previous college credits to be considered for transfer, submit official transcripts to the Records Office as soon as possible.

    Official transcripts may be mailed or sent electronically from your previous college(s) to the information below. PCC will only accept official transcripts sent directly to the Records Office from the previous college(s). Transcripts issued to the student, hand-carried, or faxed will not be accepted.

    Mailed to:

    Records Office
    Pueblo Community College
    900 W. Orman Avenue
    Pueblo, Colorado 81004

    Emailed to: Registrar@pueblocc.edu

    PCC’s Process for evaluating transcripts:

    • Transcripts for first-time students at PCC will have their transcripts evaluated once registered for classes.
    • Credits will be transferred based on the degree or certificate student is pursuing.
    • Evaluation may take up to 30 days.
    • Once the transfer evaluation is completed, you can review the results by accessing your unofficial transcripts online in your MyPCC Portal.
    • You will also receive notification to your student email concerning your transfer evaluation.  Your student email can be accessed within your MyPCC Portal.
    • If you change your degree or certificate program, you will need to contact the Records Office to have your transcripts re-evaluated.  Note: we cannot remove credits that have already been posted.


    PCC Transfer Credit Guidelines:

    • We currently accept transfer credits from regionally accredited institutions recommended by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, and as specified by legislated and CCCS articulation agreements. 
    • Transfer credits will be awarded as governed by the Colorado Department of Higher Education and State Board policies and System President Procedures.
    • All course work is evaluated on the semester hour basis: i.e. 1 quarter hour equals 2/3 of a semester hour; 1 semester hour equals 1 semester hour.
    • The maximum number of transfer credits that can be applied towards an associate degree is 45 credits; 80 credits for a bachelor of applied science degree.
    • A minimum of 25 percent of the credits applied to a degree or certificate must be earned at Pueblo Community College.
    • PCC will only evaluate credits for transfer on courses with a grade of C or better. 
    • Grade point average (GPA) from transfer institutions is not calculated into your PCC GPA.
    • Please note that some courses that are more than 10 years old may not be transferable.  The department chair or dean of your program area will determine whether your transfer credits fall within acceptable time limits.  Older credits may be evaluated by the appropriate department chair or dean and their decision will be final.
    • If you do not enroll in classes, PCC will only hold your transcripts for one year.


    Transfer Appeals Process
    Consistent with the requirements of the Colorado Department of Higher Education, CCCS Colleges have established a Transfer Appeals Process.  Based upon initial transcript evaluation of transfer credits completed, a student may appeal any of the following:

    1. A decision regarding the transferability of a specific course(s)
    2. A decision regarding the placement of a specific course(s)
    3. The college’s failure to provide a transcript evaluation within the designated 30-day calendar period


    To appeal a transfer evaluation, you should meet with the transcript evaluator and/or the Director of Enrollment Services and Registrar.

    For additional questions, please contact Connie Madsen at 719-549-3017 or connie.madsen@pueblocc.edu

     

    International Students

    An international student is one who attends PCC on a non-immigrant student visa (usually an F, J, or M non-immigrant visa). Legally admitted immigrants and refugees are not considered international students. Generally, the policies described in the college catalog apply to international students as well as domestic students. However, by federal law, some special policies apply only to international students.

    For more information on becoming an international student at PCC, please view the college catalog.
