Situated in the heart of the quiet residential neighborhood of Pueblo, Colorado, Pueblo Community College offers Colorado students the opportunity to attain an Associate’s degree in the disciplines of art, science, applied science or general studies. The college also offers matriculates the opportunity to earn a Certificate of Completion (CERT) rather than a degree. Pueblo Community College has long prided itself on being one of the most progressive community colleges in the state, a commitment which is at least partially reflected in the unique architecture of the buildings comprising the school’s campus. Pueblo Community College degree programs are approved by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education. The college’s certificate programs are approved by the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education.


Pueblo Community College offers students the option of attaining one of four Associate’s degrees or one of various certificates. Approximately 60 semester hours are required for attaining any of the Associate’s degrees, and certificates generally require students to complete at least two full courses. All students pursuing an Associate’s degree, regardless of major, will take some General Education courses. Pueblo Community College maintains a commitment to ensuring that all graduates have received a broad, well-balanced education; through General Education courses, students will have the opportunity to explore other fields beyond their course of study and to thus develop broader skills related to creative and critical thinking.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Pueblo Community College maintains an open-door admission policy, which essentially means that the school possesses no admissions requirements for potential matriculates who are over the age of 16. It is important for potential students to note, however that admissions to the college does not necessarily guarantee permission to enroll in particular courses, which may have specific requirements or prerequisites. Potential students must apply for admission online at My Community Education, at a Pueblo Community College registration station, or by filling out an application form and sending it to the Admissions and Records Office. All potential matriculates must have U.S. citizenship or legal permanent resident status. When students apply for admission to Pueblo Community College they must submit their application under the heading of unclassified or classified. Unclassified students will not be considered for financial aid, and thus those potentially seeking financial aid must apply as Classified students. Before any student officially begins any course of study, they must complete a basic skills assessment test. Former Pueblo Community College students must submit an Application for Re-Admission as well as any potentially applicable transfer documentation. Transfer students should complete the main application, but must also submit official transcripts of any courses for which they are seeking credit.
