Ready to challenge yourself and gain a new skill? Here’s how to sign up for Community Ed classes.

  1. Create an account
    If you’ve taken a class at PCC before, you already have an account and can skip this step.  New students will need to create an account.
  2. Sign up
    Find your class in the class schedule. If there are seats available, click Register now. After you’ve registered, you’ll see a link to pay your bill online.

Prefer to register by phone? Find your class in the class schedule or in Communities Magazine and call 971-722-8888, option 2.

How to Pay

Payment is due when you register. If you do not pay when you register, use an option below:

  • MyPCC: Log in to MyPCC and click PCC-Pay on the homepage or on the Paying for College tab.
  • Phone: Call 971-722-8888 and choose option 3.

You are responsible for paying your account in full even if you do not receive a bill.

Are you an Oregon resident age 62+? You qualify for a senior tuition discount.

When to register

Registration opens at 5am every day – see the academic calendar for Community Education registration dates. You can register up until the first day of class, unless otherwise noted in the class description. We recommend registering as soon as possible to reserve your spot and avoid missing important class updates.

Missing a class

Missing a class once in a while is okay. We know student who take our classes have busy schedules and vibrant lives. It is not necessary to contact your instructor if you plan to be absent. You will not be automatically dropped from the class if you miss the first day. If you want to get a refund, you need to officially drop the class: see how to drop a Community Ed class.
