Admissions

Portland Community College has made the difficult decision to close the Computer Applications and Web Technologies (CAWT) program.

While most of the classes will continue to be taught over the next 2 years, the last day a student can declare one of the CAWT certificates and degrees, (and be able to earn one of these certificates and degrees,) is Saturday, October 5, 2019.

If you are an active PCC student, who has already declared one of the CAWT certificates or degrees and has completed CAS/OS coursework towards your program, please contact a CAWT advisor [opens in new window] to discuss course scheduling and academic planning.
