Portland Community College | Portland, Oregon

The educational system in the United States may be very different from that in your home country. There is a lot to learn about the U.S. educational system and how to be a successful student in the American classroom. There will be many things you need to do that are new and different. Some of you may be taking courses in our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program to improve your English skills and some of you may be starting to take courses in your major. No matter where you begin our committed faculty and staff are here to help you.

In the College 101 Track you will gain an understanding of important dates, deadlines and what you'll need to do to successfully complete your first term at PCC. Each checklist will guide you through critical weeks of the term and help prepare you for the next term to begin. You can always come back to the checklists anytime during the term.
