Portland Community College Reviews
I worked with some incompetent advisors, which pushed me a semester behind, then it ended up setting me an entire year out because the college ONLY offers one of their science beginner series courses in the Fall. Then they made me retake MTH 95 being it was "expired", over the 3-5 yrs "suggested" time frame. This too set my courses back due to needing MTH 111 to be accepted into the science courses needed to move on. I ONLY needed a few science courses for the requirements of my PhD program. My MTH class this semester has been VERY unprepared for online learning. I have been watching material videos which were clearly made years in the past, not even by the current instructor and there are many errors; as other students and myself have had to point out to the instructor. I will get through this because I am a survivor but it sure does make it paying for learning difficult, they should be more professional. They did refund my "fees" due to COVID; which was a super and amazing thing!
Very resourceful college! You'll find tons of support from everyone such as the professors and the academic counselors. The tuition price is fair too, plus fantastic online courses, there are tons of options to choose from! They also have a variety of degrees and certifications to choose from and support DACA students heavily. Diversity is at its zenith here and everyone is supported, including the LGBTQ community (tons of events for them!), you'll feel included even being online.
I'm currently a student at Portland Community College. There have been some bad reviews on this school but honestly my experience here been great! This school is very supportive of students in all aspects and has many programs and events to help the community get to know each other. What I enjoy most were the instructors. They have been amazing in really take the time to give you the assistance when you need it. Small class sizes. They want to see you succeed! I have not had a bad experience with any of the instructors. Highly recommend this school for non traditional or returning students, or students just beginning their college careers and want to stay close to home or save money. Great option to explore the programs offered at PCC.
