Disclosures and Policies

In submitting your course registrations, you consent to all policies and procedures of Portland Community College, including but not limited to: Student Financial Responsibilities Agreement, Telephone Contact Consent, and Form 1098-T Electronic Delivery.  To avoid financial responsibility related to your registration at PCC, you need to officially drop courses by the published drop deadline.

Student Financial Responsibility Agreement

I understand that my registration signifies a financial agreement between me and Portland Community College (“PCC”) and signifies my agreement to pay all charges related to my registration with, or services provided by, PCC including, but not limited to, tuition, course fees, parking charges, bookstore charges, fines and other fees posted to my student account. I understand that I am responsible for keeping PCC informed of any address or telephone changes. If I am under 18 years of age, I understand I am liable for any charges incurred in accordance with ORS 348.105.

I agree to pay all charges on my student account by the payment due date, even if I do not receive a bill or my account is being paid by another party. If any form of financial aid I receive is reduced or canceled, I agree to immediately pay or enter into a formal payment arrangement for any resulting balance. I understand that administrative, clerical or technical billing errors do not absolve me my responsibility to pay the correct amount of tuition, fees and other student account charges. 

I understand and agree that unless I pay immediately at the time of registration, I am entering into a student loan agreement with the college, which is non-dischargeable under USC§523 (a) of the U.S. Bankruptcy code. I understand that my agreement with PCC shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Oregon and any suit for enforcement shall be filed in the Circuit Court for Multnomah County, Oregon.

I understand and agree that if I fail to pay my student account charges or make an official payment arrangement with the college by the payment due date, PCC may:

  • assess late payment fees of up to $75 per term
  • place a financial hold on my student account preventing me from requesting transcripts  registering for any additional classes, and changing my class schedule
  • refer my delinquent account to a collection agency or for litigation

If my account is referred to a collection agency, I agree to pay all reasonable collection agency fees of up to 25% of my student account balance plus attorney fees, including those incurred at trial and on appeal.  Furthermore, I understand that pursuant to ORS 293.250 PCC participates in Oregon Department of Revenue’s tax offset program and may divert state monies or tax refunds that I may be expecting to pay a delinquent student account balance.

This agreement supersedes all prior Student Financial Responsibilities agreements. PCC has the right to update or modify the terms of this agreement, the provisions of which will be effective upon my future enrollment at PCC.

This is a legal agreement. If you need clarification of any of the provisions of this agreement, please email your questions to bursar@pcc.edu.

Telephone Contact Consent

By providing my telephone number, email, or other contact information, I authorize Portland Community College (PCC) and its agents to contact me using the information I have provided by any means of communications, including but not limited to, calls placed to my cellular phone using and automated dialing service, calls using prerecorded messages and/or SMS text messages, regarding any past, current or future financial or academic record (or critical college business) held by PCC and its agents. I consent to all forms of contact, even if I will be charged by my service provider(s) for receiving such communications.

1098-T Electronic Delivery Consent

My enrollment with Portland Community College (PCC) signifies my consent to electronic delivery of my IRS Form 1098-T for each year that I have reportable transactions. I understand that I may receive, view, and print my IRS Form 1098-T via MyPCC. I understand that I may submit a request to receive a paper IRS Form 1098-T via MyPCC Home tab by clicking on the My Records link under the Quick Links channel and that such a request will not be treated as a withdrawal of consent to electronic delivery. The PCC business office will confirm the withdrawal via MyPCC email. A withdrawal consent does not apply to a statement provided electronically as set forth above before the date on which the withdrawal of consent takes effect. I understand PCC will cease electronic delivery of my IRS Form 1098-T only if I have no reportable transactions during the tax year.

Should my contact information change, I understand it is my responsibility to submit the appropriate change of information form and that I may access my contact information online by viewing the MyPCC My Records link. I understand that my IRS Form 1098-T may be accessed, downloaded and printed on any hardware device that can open, read and print Adobe PDF documents and that the college provides student use computers on campus with the necessary hardware and software to access and print my IRS Form 1098-T. I understand that my IRS Form 1098-T will no longer be available via MyPCC after seven years.

In order to receive my IRS Form 1098-T electronically or otherwise, I understand that I must provide my social security number prior to the end of the tax year. I understand that the college cannot issue 1098-T statements retroactively if I have failed to provide my social security number.

See instructions for how to view your 1098-T.
