Follow the steps below, from applying to preparing for your first semester and beyond!
Navigate To-Dos will help you keep track of the important tasks you need to complete before, during, and after a semester. Review and complete your personalized To-Do items, which may include connecting with certain teams on campus, financial aid, degree planning, and more.
To access your To-Do Items:
Registering for classes will create a tuition bill. It’s an essential part of your success as a student that you have a plan for how you will pay for that bill.
Tip: You will not have a bill until after you register for classes. If you are using financial aid or other benefits, keep in mind that those do not always cover your full bill. Check on your bill for any remaining balance that you are responsible for throughout the semester.
Financial Aid begins with submitting your financial aid application – the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for U.S. residents or the CASFA) for eligible non-residents. After your financial aid application is complete, you may qualify for grants, loans, work study, and/or scholarships to help you pay for your education.
Complete your FAFSA for the desired aid year OR update your FAFSA with Pikes Peak's school code: 008896. If you are not eligible to submit the FAFSA based on your citizenship status, learn about ASSET and submit the Colorado Application for Student Financial Aid (CASFA).
Apply for Pikes Peak State College scholarships using the general Pikes Peak State scholarship application. Keep an eye on the scholarships web page and your email for information on when the scholarship application is open.
Sometimes, financial aid and other benefits will not cover your full tuition bill, if you're using those benefits. As a non-degree seeking student, you may plan to self-pay for your classes regardless, and many of our other students do not use financial aid or other benefits and pay for their education out of pocket.
Either way, it is important that you regularly review your bill so you know what you will need to pay. PPSC offers many self-payment options, including payment plans, to help.
Once you are ready to register, log into Navigate to plan for, schedule, and register

Each semester has more than one parts of term. View the academic calendar to see your options.

Review Your Bill Often
Remember, it’s important to have a plan for how you will pay for classes. As you add
or drop classes, and after drop dates for your classes, it’s important to review your
tuition bill. Be sure to reach out to Student Accounts early if you have any questions
or concerns about your bill.
