A History of Excellence!

For more than 85 years, Pueblo Community College (PCC) has provided the education and training that gives our students the skills they need to qualify for good jobs or to transfer to a four-year school. We are a two-year community college accredited by The Higher Learning Commission – a member of the North Central Association (, 312.263.0456). We are one of thirteen colleges in the Colorado Community College System, the fastest growing educational system in Colorado.

We offer more than 50 Certificate and Associate Degree programs, and we are a state leader in health care education. The job placement rate for graduates of our Health Professions programs is virtually 100 percent, and many are hired before they even graduate. In August 2007, we launched the new Massage Therapy program and Fire Science program. In March 2008, PCC continued to expand educational opportunities with the implementation of a Cosmetology Program, in 2009, a Health Information Technology, and in 2010 a Polysomnography Program.
