Step 2. Sign Up for the College Opportunity Fund (COF)

Why pay more for your college education? The College Opportunity Fund, or "stipend," is money set aside by the state to invest in your education. For the 2011-2012 school year, the tuition stipend equals $62 per credit hour. To be eligible, you must be a qualified Colorado resident. Sign up today - it's easy and fast! To apply, visit the COF website. You will save a bundle on tuition!

Step 3. Apply for Financial Aid

Getting financial aid for college is easier than you think – the trick is getting your application in early. In order to apply for different kinds of financial aid, including grants, loans, scholarships and Student Staff programs, you must fill out an application, called the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The earlier you get your application in, the better your chances to qualify for a good financial aid package. So get started today - apply online at www.fafsa.ed.gov, or pick up an application at any PPCC Enrollment Services Center. Need help? Speak to one of our Financial Aid Advisors at 719-502-3000.

Step 4. Take the Placement Assessment

This is one test everybody aces. It’s a quick evaluation of your basic skills that helps you and your advisor know where your college education should start. If you have taken the ACT or SAT, or if you have taken college classes before, you might not need a placement test. But to be on the safe side, contact the Testing Center today at 719-502-3370.

Step 5. Career Planning & Advising

We can help you figure out your education and career goals, map them to the PPCC academic plan that fits you best, and help you choose the best classes. If you are a new student enrolled in a degree or certificate program, you’ll be assigned your personal faculty program advisor. He or she can be your safety net as you head toward graduation – they know all the ins and outs of your major, and will help guide your choice of classes in future semesters.
