If you have attended another college or university, submit your official transcripts. Once your transcripts have been evaluated, check Degree Check to see how your credits transferred and applied to your degree at Pikes Peak.

Voices of PPSC
You have more resources than you do in a bigger university and you get help with anything you need.

¡Hablo español! My family and I moved to Colorado 13 years ago and have felt at home ever since. My family and I enjoy watching movies, singing random songs, fishing, and barbecuing whenever we can! My advice for students is that you can do it! No matter where you are in life, at PPSC we are here to help you succeed! Ask many questions and take advantage of every resource you have at your disposal.
I'm from Laguna Hills, California but I received my B.A. from UCCS in Psychology with a minor in American Sign Language. I love being able to help students reach their goals and navigate the crazy world of college. Outside of work, my passions are traveling the world, exploring new cultures, and eating exotic cuisines! My favorite hobbies are going to the movie theatre, playing Overwatch, Dungeons and Dragons, or hanging with my dog and guinea pig.
I am a proud PPSC graduate and transfer student, receiving my B.A. in Anthropology, and Minor in Museum Studies from UCCS. I love museums, art, music, and cooking, but my favorite hobby is hiking in the Rocky Mountains with all my wonderful dogs. I am grateful to make connections and help students succeed in their academic endeavors and professional goals.
I am a Colorado Springs native that graduated from Wasson High School - a long time ago. I have an AAS in computer info systems, and am currently working on an AA here at PPSC. I have a love for helping people in need, and enjoy seeing the people I help be successful. I love comedy, music, dance, and Disney World! My advice to students is do what you love and love what you do; the rest is history.
I might be the youngest on the team, but you don't have to be old to be wise! Formerly, I worked/ volunteered in the criminal justice system in different roles: probation officer, victim advocate, social worker, etc. With this position, I made the switch to working in higher education, and haven't looked back since! My advice is to take one class outside of your comfort zone while you're here, whether it be a language or an art course. Your undergrad degree is the time to learn as many new things as you can!
I am a proud PPSC alumni, and I got my Bachelors at UCCS. I have lived in Colorado Springs for 8 years now. I am originally from Fort Morgan, CO which is known for having the last running Sugar Beet processing plant in the state. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to the movies, playing Xbox, and I am in a Fantasy Football League that just celebrated our 11th season together.
I grew up as an Air Force dependent in Asia and Europe. Because of my parents, I understand the importance of an education and a job that brings joy by helping others. I use to work in the Records Office at PPSC. When not at work, I enjoy Colorado hot springs and walking trails. My favorite thing about PPSC is that we offer a variety of degrees at an affordable price that is inclusive to anyone.
I earned a B.A. in Counseling Psychology from Colorado Mesa University. I love art, history, and music. It means a lot to me to help students on their journey to achieving their personal, career, and educational goals. My helpful tip for students is that your student ID can get you discounts at a lot of different places!
