YES to College Information Sessions and Testing

Outreach and Intake Specialist: pccprep@pcc.edu | 971-722-6213

Students applying to YES to College must complete ABE/GED Orientation and Placement test at the campus they wish to attend PRIOR to attending an information session.

ABE/GED Orientation and Placement

Use the ABE Orientation and Placement sessions calendar to find the placement test at the campus you wish to attend. Click on the day you are interested in to see where there is a placement test. The ABE/GED Orientation and Placement tests are first-come, first-served, so you should show up 30-45 minutes early.  Additionally, you must have your PCC Student ID number (G Number) to take the test (you do not need an ID card, just the G number).

YES to College Information Sessions

  • Meet your College Success Coach.
  • Receive information on YES to College to help you decide whether it seems like a good fit for you.
  • Have a chance to ask questions about the program.
  • Get an application packet if you have not already done so.
