The largest, most diverse place of higher learning in Southern Colorado, Pikes Peak State College throws the doors of opportunity wide open.
Providing access to quality education drives everything PPSC does. That access begins with affordability – with tuition less than half of their university counterparts – and then redefines convenience, with classes at campuses throughout the Pikes Peak region (three main campuses, two learning centers and two military education centers) as well as online.
The students range from high school grads seeking an excellent cost-effective transfer path to four-year schools to veterans transitioning into the civilian workforce to the unemployed or under-employed looking for fresh starts in such high-paying careers as cyber security, arc welding and industrial manufacturing.
Established in 1968 as El Paso County Community College and accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, PPCC offers 158 associate degrees and certifications in career and technical fields.
The new Pikes Peak State College name change and brand officially launched on August 29, 2022, the first day of the fall semester. You can find some of the new branded merchandise in the book stores.
Note: As we make this transition over the next year, you may see the college referred to as either Pikes Peak State or Pikes Peak State College.
