Begin Your Journey at PCC

PCC offers not only a wide variety of courses, but also a variety of locations throughout the Portland metropolitan area. During your first two years of courses leading to a bachelor's degree, you will typically find smaller class sizes, personal attention, as well as lower tuition. Refresher courses are also available, along with a variety of learning resources.

As you begin your transition from PCC to your four-year institution, you may want to take classes at both campuses. Advisors at both schools work closely together to provide accurate information and a smooth transition between schools.
