How to Complete EdReady for PPSC Placement

Preparation is the key to successfully transferring to a four-year baccalaureate program. Begin researching your options during your first semester at Pikes Peak State College. Early planning will give you the most choices and best opportunities for your intended baccalaureate major. Be aware that most four-year colleges and universities have priority application deadlines. Regularly work with your PPSC advisors and transfer staff at your desired college or university.

Creating a Plan
Discuss your plans with your advisors, they can provide you with information on:

  • Course selection, sequence of courses, and specific requirements
  • Admissions information and scholarships available at four-year colleges and universities
  • Contact information for most four-year colleges
Meet with an advisor to discuss transfer planning:

Transfer Guidelines
