Adult Learners

Thinking of earning a degree or certificate, but can’t attend classes during the day?  Flexible and affordable college options for adult learners are available with PCC.

Pitt Community College offers curriculum and non-curriculum courses to meet your professional goals.  When it comes to your education, PCC excels in:

  • Flexibility – We offer classes when you need them and deliver them how you need them.  Whether they be seated courses, online classes, or hybrid offerings of the two, you complete your courses at your own pace.  Balancing your work and family commitments is important in making the decision to come to college, and PCC provides degree options that can be completed entirely online, in the evenings, or over the weekend.
  • Affordability – More than 80% of students who attend PCC receive a type of financial assistance in the form of federal grants or scholarships.  Full funding for your college experience is available to you through the FAFSA, but if you plan to pay on your own, our courses are provided at affordable prices.
  • Employability – College is about gaining education and training you can utilize in the professional working world.  With “stackable” credentials within our degree programs and various continuing education options, PCC provides you the tools you need in order to excel in your current career or to start in a new one.
