Consistency in grading is aweful! For example, some math teachers mark an entire test question wrong for a simple sign error despite the fact of whether or you displayed key-concepts, making for an unrealistic score with zero helpful feedback. Some teachers are the opposite and use a partial credit grading system, awarding points when key concepts were displayed, but maybe a silly addition error foiled the ultimate answer. All teachers for each course should use similar grading styles for better consistency in grading.

Pikes Peak is a GREAT community college! The only reason I will give them an A- is because they need to improve upon their online classes. Many teachers doing these have NEVER taught an online course and are unprepared to handle technical aspects of using an online framework and are highly disorganized and confusing to online students. The In-school classes however are very opposite. They are well structured and most teachers are 100% willing to help you succeed in any way. Even the counselors and staff have smiles on their faces as they help you make your course choices or answer your questions. I LOVE this school. When the online courses are improved, I will stamp them with an A+.

There are four campuses at Pikes Peak Community College and each of them are great! They all have a Student Life Center with helpful employees. They will assist you with general questions, tours of the campus and information of ongoing activities throughout the semester. There are bingo nights, casino nights, food drives, and food pantries provided to make sure that each student makes the most of their experience at PPCC.
