Portland Community College | Portland, Oregon

Payment is due two weeks before the term starts. If you don't have a payment arrangement set up by the due date, we may delete your course registrations. If that happens, you lose your seat in all your classes.

Don't count on the college to remove you from classes. It's up to you to manage your schedule and drop any classes you won't be able to attend.

I'm receiving a tuition waiver
If you see a yellow caution sign in your Don't Get Deleted channel, it means your waiver has not been processed. If your program pays your tuition, check with your program coordinator. Otherwise, contact Student Account Services to check the status of your waiver. Once your waiver is processed, you'll see the green check on your chair in the Don't Get Deleted channel.
