Paying for College

We believe in providing access to an affordable, quality education. The tuition at PCC is very affordable: tuition and fees for a year of classes at PCC are about half of what they are at an Oregon public university. We also offer many resources to help pay for college. Students can do most of their college business online, which improves access and saves you time.

How much does it cost to go to PCC?

Tuition for residents is $92 per credit. Most classes are 1 to 4 credits each.

Example budgets for tuition, fees, and books:

about $800 per term
full time student (12 credits):
about $1600 per term
