Online Course Schedule for Summer Quarter

Welcome to Pierce College at JBLM! Our classes run on an accelerated 9-week session, and are held at the Stone and McChord Education Centers on JBLM.

We are still open, we’re just doing things differently. In response to COVID-19 and governmental guidance, Pierce College has moved services and instruction online to the greatest extent possible to keep you and our community healthy, while also serving your educational needs.

All courses will be delivered using Canvas and other virtual instruction tools for summer and fall term.
