You can have your bill paid by a third party sponsor, such as your employer or sponsoring agency.
How to use third party billing
Check with your sponsor
Before you register for classes, check with your sponsor and make sure they have a formal billing arrangement with PCC (see instructions for sponsors).
Provide billing authorization
Have your sponsor provide a billing authorization to you or to the college.
Meet the due date
The billing authorization must be received by PCC on or before the due date below. If your third party sponsor does not provide a billing authorization or fails to pay, it will be up to you to pay your account balance. You can fax your authorization to 971-722-2816, or mail to:
Portland Community College
Third Party Billing
PO Box 19000
Portland, OR 97280-0990
Check your student account
Check your student account balance regularly in the MyPCC Paying for College tab. If there is a balance, either we did not receive the authorization, it is incomplete, or the sponsor is only going to pay part of your balance. It's up to you to make sure the billing authorization is received on time. If your billing authorization is not enough to cover your account balance, you will need to pay the difference by the payment due date.
A separate billing authorization must be submitted to the PCC Bookstore for text books. You can fax your book authorization to 971-722-8341.
