Summer Classes Begin at PCC

May 28, 2013

"The College remains fully accredited"

Tucson, AZ – Summer classes began today at Pima Community College, with credit courses offered in some 80 disciplines.

The College offers four sessions of summer classes. Sessions A and C began today. The deadline for adding a class in Session A is May 29. The deadline for session C classes is June 3.

PCC also offers a five-week summer school session from July 8-August 11 and a variety of summer camps and courses for children through Pima for Kids.

Students can apply for admission and register for classes through Summer and Fall 2013 class schedules are available online, as is a schedule of key dates.

“Summertime is a great time to learn,” said Vice Provost Dr. Mary Ann Martinez Sanchez. “Students of all ages can benefit from Pima’s low tuition and flexible class schedules.”

Dr. Martinez Sanchez urged prospective students not to be deterred by the Higher Learning Commission’s recent decision to place Pima on probation.“The College remains fully accredited,” she said.

 “Students taking our classes should experience no problems transferring courses to the state’s four-year universities.”

Letters from the University of Arizona, Arizona State University and Northern Arizona University assuring that those schools will accept PCC credits for transfer are on accreditation page of the College website.

“The leaders of Arizona’s universities know that the learning that takes place in Pima’s classrooms is top-notch,” Dr. Martinez Sanchez said.

She noted that detailed information about PCC’s probationary status also is available online and encouraged anyone with questions about accreditation to contact the Provost’s Office at 206-4999 or
