ABE (Adult Basic Education) classes offer instruction for adults who wish to improve skills in reading, math, and writing, or wish to prepare for the State GED (General Education Development) Exam. If you do not want preparation classes and only want to take the State GED Exam, call the PCC Testing Center at 971-722-5680 for information.

New students must attend a Placement Session before attending class. The placement session schedules are listed below by campus. New students must fill out an Admissions Application online at www.pcc.edu/admissions. PCC will email your PCC student ID number. Bring picture ID and your ID number to the testing session.

ABE classes are available in the morning, afternoon, and evening. However, not every class is available at every site and time. Assignment to classes will be made at the Placement Session according to the students' schedules and levels.
