Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

What Students Are Saying

3.05 Average Rating
The tuition of Pikes Peak is a decent price and financial aid really helps too. For my last semester which was 14 credit hours I paid 1600 plus books.
Whitney from Woodland Park, CO
I'm not sure if I'm getting the big bang for my buck but compared to the few colleges I have compared to, I am getting my money worth.
Elise from Colorado Springs, CO
The tuition is quite okay.
Sarah from Colorado Springs, CO
I definitely feel that PPCC is worth the price. It's a beautiful community college, and the teachers there are helpful and know their curriculum well. For an Associate's Degree, I'd recommend going here first and then transferring to a four year college. It's the same level of education---just cheaper!
Chelsea from Colorado Springs, CO
While the price isn't extremely cheap, you definitely get your money's worth.
