Phillips Community College is constantly growing to meet the career needs and interests of Eastern Arkansas residents, particularly those from challenged backgrounds.
Located in Helena, Arkansas, Phillips started out with fewer than 250 students and today has an enrollment of over 2,000. Its programs too, have grown from a handful of offerings to include an array of occupational, technical and academic degrees and certificates.
At Philips students may obtain an associate’s degree or certificate in such marketable fields as Practical Nursing, Phlebotomy, Welding, Cosmetology and Pre-Engineering.
Students may also choose to pursue a more academic degree in such subjects as Speech and Drama, English, Math or Political Science, degrees that could lead to a four-year university transfer.
Philips offers distance learning, adult education and continuing education options as well.
The facilities at PCC have also expanded. For example, buildings and facilities are constantly being redesigned to include additional classrooms, labs and offices.
Students who wish to attend Philips but lack the finances or feel impeded by a disability may benefit from the Student Support Services program. Through this program, eligible students who are low-income, disabled or the first in their family to attend college can receive numerous support services. These may include financial counseling and aid, study-skills instruction, career counseling and tutoring, all free of charge.
