Portland Community College | Portland, Oregon

Child care reservations and fees are computed for the entire term. Just as you do not receive refunds if you miss a class on campus, neither refunds or credits are given for your child's absences or school closures for inclement weather. Persons still owing fees for child care from a previous term may not enroll the child for the next term or receive transcripts until all fees are paid.
