Returning to college after ten years was scary for me, but PCC made it easy. There are multiple campuses throughout the Portland area with shuttles and buses, making it accessible no matter what part of town you live in. The bike rental program is an incredible deal: $15 gets you a bike, helmet, lights, and lock for the term and you can bring it in for free tune-ups! The PCC faculty and staff are friendly and helpful, creating a positive learning environment. I'd recommend PCC to anyone considering going back to school or starting fresh.

Love going to Portland community college, I have had amazing help from the counselors that have been at my aid for help. Great teachers and have made fun, great friendships with classmates over the year, it has been an interesting ride so far in my college career so far. I look forward to finishing this year up and transferring to Portland state!
Portland Community college has been great! It is extremely affordable and the relaxed campus vibe is very nice when trying to really focus. It is great to be able to get such a great experience at PCC, because it is going to prepare me for university when I transfer next year. I would have likely been very nervous going straight to a big school, and PCC has afforded me the low tuition costs and low stress environment that I need! A+
