Make More of Your Summer

If you have been away at college and are in the Pikes Peak region for the summer, you can take classes at PPCC to get ahead. It's easy to transfer credits back to your home college or university after the summer semester ends. With PPCC's low tuition rates, you could save hundreds if not thousands of dollars by taking the classes at PPCC.
