Return to Earn

Reskill, Upskill, or Complete Industry Credentials

College degrees and certificates are always valuable – and in a rapidly changing job market, the ability to reskill and upskill can be your passport to moving up or starting a new career.

Now is the time to take control of your life. It’s been proven that those with degrees and certificates are more likely to get jobs with higher wages than those with only a high school diploma. It’s about providing you with the skills you need to provide for you and your family. Better yet, many of our certificates – and even some degrees – can take as little as 1 or 2 semesters to get you career ready. 

Your success is why we’re here. It’s worth it. You’re worth it.

Are you are a former PCC student who didn’t finish your degree or certificate?

You could receive a scholarship award of up to $2,000 through our Return-to-Earn program. Return-to-Earn is dedicated to helping students through every step of the re-enrollment process. Call 719-549-3202 or email

Miranda Finegan
Behavioral Health Student
Miranda Finegan

America’s fentanyl crisis, as well as a personal connection to the realities of addiction, propelled one Pueblo Community College student toward her career path.

Miranda Finegan graduated last spring with an Associate of Applied Science degree from PCC’s behavioral health program. She transferred to CSU Pueblo to complete a bachelor’s degree in health science and administration.

“PCC showed me what I was capable of,” she said. “PCC prepared me for CSU Pueblo.”
