Third party billing icon

You can have your bill paid by a third party sponsor, such as your employer or sponsoring agency.

How to use third party billing

  1. Check with your sponsor

    Before you register for classes, check with your sponsor and make sure they have a formal billing arrangement with PCC (see instructions for sponsors).

  2. Provide billing authorization

    Have your sponsor provide a billing authorization to you or to the college.

  3. Meet the due date

    The billing authorization must be received by PCC on or before the due date below. If your third party sponsor does not provide a billing authorization or fails to pay, it will be up to you to pay your account balance. You can fax your authorization to 971-722-2816, or mail to:

    Portland Community College
    Third Party Billing
    PO Box 19000
    Portland, OR 97280-0990

  4. Check your student account

    Check your student account balance regularly in the MyPCC Paying for College tab. If there is a balance, either we did not receive the authorization, it is incomplete, or the sponsor is only going to pay part of your balance. It's up to you to make sure the billing authorization is received on time. If your billing authorization is not enough to cover your account balance, you will need to pay the difference by the payment due date.

A separate billing authorization must be submitted to the PCC Bookstore. Fax your book authorization to 971-722-8341. Read more about using third party billing at the bookstore.
