Take a Student Success Course for Free!

Pima Community College is offering Student Success courses for free for the spring 2021 semester, creating hundreds of dollars in potential savings and removing a financial barrier to Pima County taxpayers interested in furthering their education.

Student Success courses help students achieve their educational and personal goals. Topics covered include study skills, personal finance, critical thinking, transfer strategies, and career exploration and preparation. A Student Success course does not have to be taken in conjunction with any other Pima course. All related fees are waived, unless there is a course-specific fee.

Pima Student Life now uses the Discord platform for students to communicate with clubs and stay involved with what’s going on at the College.

Pima started using Discord in Fall 2020 as a way for students to develop relationships and build community while campuses are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pima Student Life aims to make sure that students are supported not only academically but also socially
