Pikes Peak Community College
Do you want to learn more about Pikes Peak Community College? Their Vision Statement is that students succeed at Pikes Peak Community College while their mission statement includes the following: "Our mission is to provide high quality, educational opportunities accessible to all, with a focus on student success and community needs, including occupational programs for youth and adults in career and technical fields, two-year transfer educational programs to qualify students for admission to the junior year at other colleges and universities, and a broad range of personal, career, and technical education for adults."
Pikes Peak Community College is accredited through the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of College and Schools (NCA). The accreditation process is conducted every ten years. PPCC is currently undertaking this process. During the next several months faculty and staff are collecting information and writing a comprehensive Self-Study Report that addresses the criteria HLC uses to determine our accreditation status. The process culminates in an extensive campus visit by the HLC Evaluation team in March 2014. Their website serves as a source of information about accreditation for faculty, staff, students, our external stakeholdes and the public.

The College Opportunity Trust Fund (COF), created by the Colorado Legislature, provides a stipend to eligible undergraduate students. The stipend pays a portion of your total in-state tuition when you attend a Colorado public institution or a participating private institution. Eligible undergraduate students must apply, be admitted and enroll at a participating institution. Both new and continuing students are eligible for the stipend.
Qualifying students may use the stipend for eligible undergraduate classes. The stipend is paid on a per credit hour basis to the institution at which the student is enrolled. The credit-hour amount will be set annually by the General Assembly. Students who register for one or more classes (unless they officially drop from the college within the time specified for a refund) are obligated to pay the full amount of their balance. Failure to pay tuition could result in the addition of attorney charges, collection fees, interest and other costs. Students with an unpaid account will have transcripts and grades held and will not be able to register for subsequent terms.
You can also pay online with a credit card (Visa or Mastercard) as well as access your billing statement and balance. To pay online via your PPCC Portal follow these steps: Log into MyPPCC portal, Select "Student Finance" tab, and finally, in the "Tuition/Fees Payment Options" box click on "Pay Online".
