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.

Tuition for residents is $88 per credit. Most classes are 1 to 4 credits each.
