FRequentLy asked questIons
What is the Refund/Drop Policy?
If you want to drop a class, you must do so online at your MyPCC account or file an add/drop form with the Registration Office. Drop deadlines vary for Community Education classes. 100% of charges associated with a class will be removed if you formally drop by the deadlines listed below. NO CHARGES WILL BE REMOVED IF YOU DROP AFTER THE REFUND PERIOD. Non-attendance does not relieve you of your obligation to pay. Please note that if you register for a class and do not attend or stop attending and fail to personally drop within the refund period, you will be responsible for all tuition and fees. Accounts are subject to late fees if bills are not paid on time. For complete registration policies and information please refer to the PCC web site at www.pcc.edu/pcc/registration/policies.

How do I pay for my class?
If you prefer to use a credit or bank card, you can do so by calling 503-977-4234 or online at www.pcc.edu/pccpay. You can also mail your payment in the form of a check to: PCC-Business Office, PO Box 19000, Portland, OR, 97280-990. You are responsible to ensure that your account is paid in full even if you do not receive a bill.

Will I receive a registration confirmation or bill?
Confirmation of class registration is assumed once you register. You will not be sent written confirmation. Access to your class schedule and bill is available online using MyPCC. PCC does not bill daily, so you may or may not receive a bill before class begins. If you registered online, be sure to monitor your MyPCC email account for your PCC e-bill notification.

8-10 wk. classes 11-12 wk. classes Motorcycle classes Driver Education classes Online classes

Is there a discount for seniors?
If you are 62 years of age or over when classes begin, you are eligible for receive a 50% tuition discount on credit and non-credit classes. The tuition discount does not apply to lab and class fees, and out-of-state or CEU tuition. Be sure to indicate your eligibility when you register. Seniors also receive a 50% discount on monthly and term parking passes.

How do I know which language class is the right level for me?
If you are unsure of the appropriate level, first register for the class you think best fits your skills level and attend the first class to assess your comfort level. If you need to change levels you can do so by following the add/drop procedure. Feel free to contact us if you need more assistance.

I have a question and would like to speak with someone. Who can I call?
We want to hear from you and are happy to answer any questions you might have. Give our office a call at 503-788-6266, Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm.

How late can I register?
You can register online through MyPCC or in person as late as the first day of class, but by waiting you run the risk of the class either being filled or being cancelled and not knowing about the cancellation.

What is the parking policy?
All vehicles parked on a PCC Campus or PCC Center between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Monday through Friday must display a current PCC parking permit on their car rear view mirror or a daily pass on their car dashboard. Disabled spaces also require PCC parking permits. The only exceptions are the timed visitor and designated motorcycle parking areas. Permits are not required for off-campus facilities or Willow Creek. To obtain a permit at anytime other than when you register, you must show proof of enrollment. Permits are available at the PCC business offices. Daily parking passes are available from the yellow vending machines at each campus/center parking lot. Call 503-977-4703 or go to www.pcc.edu/resources/parking for more information.

Is there an age minimum for people taking Community Education classes?
Our classes are geared toward an adult audience and our minimum age is 16. However, in certain cases younger students are permitted in our classes. Contact the Community Education Programmer for the subject area your class falls under for special approval.

Is there a waitlist for classes that are full?
PCC has an automatic waitlist system for most classes. If the class is full and you put your name on the waitlist, you will receive a waitlist number. If a space opens up in the class, you will be automatically registered for the class. You will receive electronic confirmation that you have been placed in the class ONLY via your MyPCC account. If you are moved into the class, you are officially registered and responsible for paying for the class.

How can I get a copy of this PCC Community Education schedule?
Students who have taken a class within the last year will automatically receive in the mail a PCC Communities magazine that contains the Community Education schedule. If you did not receive one or would like to order a copy for a friend, go online to www.pcc.edu/community and click on ‘Get a Printed Schedule’ or call us at 503-788-6266. It’s free!

What if I have to miss a class?
Missing a class once in awhile is okay. We know students who take our classes have very busy schedules and vibrant lives! Because our classes are non-credit, instructors generally do not take attendance. Please keep in mind that you will not be automatically dropped from the course if you miss the first class. You will need to file an add/drop form to avoid paying for the class. (See refund policy above.) It is not necessary to contact your instructor if you plan to be absent from class.

What’s your dream class?
Everyone has something they’ve always dreamed of trying. Whether it’s studying Japanese, creating a vegetable garden, or learning to invest in the stock market, sometimes exploring your interests can seem out of reach. At PCC’s Community Education, we can make your dream come true! Affordable, fun classes in your neighborhood exist because members of the community express an interest. We care about what you care about. That’s why we’re always on the lookout for new class ideas and subjects that will allow you to explore, create, grow and learn. Do you have an idea for a new class? Let us know! Or maybe you have a special skill or knowledge you’d like to share with others? After all, Community Education teachers are just as much a part of the community as students are. Professional certification is not required – just experience with and passion for your subject, and an ability to share it with others.

We look forward to hearing from you!
