Pima recognizes that the COVID-19 crisis drastically has affected its students. While on-campus services currently are not available, the College is adapting its services and instruction based on the best interests of the students and community.
Online, Virtual and Hybrid classes
Similar to Pima classes offered in Fall 2020, Spring 2021 classes are a blend of online – through Pima’s dedicated PimaOnline platforms, virtual – offering a variety of teaching techniques using the Internet and other tools, and hybrid – combining in-person and online instruction. Hybrid courses usually require a lab or other hands-on component.
Enroll and register online
Students should register for classes through MyPima. Whether you are a new or returning student, registering for classes at Pima is quick and easy. All you need to begin is access to the Internet and your MyPima account.
