Return to accessibility navigation at the top of the page. Students on the Downtown Campus

Summer 2017

This summer will bring some shifts in Pima Community College’s typical schedule. Students and student success is the College’s highest priority. This guide will help you navigate the changes and take advantage of new opportunities.

Each campus will continue to operate its campus-specific offerings.  As examples, Desert Vista will continue to offer Culinary and Center for Training and Development programming; East Campus will continue to offer EMT classes; and Downtown Campus will continue to offer Automotive and Machine Tool classes.  Community Campus’ online, workforce, and Adult Basic Ed programs will also continue operations without change. 

Libraries, computer labs, tutoring and other services also will be available at all campuses. Veteran’s Services will operate as usual.

As more students are taking courses online, we encourage those near our Desert Vista and East campuses to come use the computer labs and take advantage of tutoring and other services.

The biggest difference is that in-person general education courses such as math, English, and history, will be offered on the Downtown and West campuses and science courses will be offered at Downtown, West and Northwest.

Why the change?

With fewer students attending in the summer and more students taking classes online, courses became so spread out that students often were forced to take classes on multiple campuses to get a complete schedule. More important, some classes were scheduled but didn't fill and had to be canceled.  By consolidating classes on three campuses instead of spreading them across five, students should have more options to fill their schedules and courses are more likely to fill and not be canceled.
