Welcome to Oregon and PCC!

PCC is a two-year college offering intensive English programs, over 100 areas of study, and the option to transfer to a four-year school. We are the largest school in Oregon, and we have an active international student community.

PCC has four gorgeous campuses located throughout the city. International students love Portland because it is one of the friendliest cities in the U.S., full of parks, coffee shops, and microbreweries. Wherever you are headed, Portland Community College is a great place to begin.
