Can you go from PCC to Harvard or Stanford or MIT?
You better believe it.
No matter where you go to school, the frst two years of most
four-year degrees are mainly spent laying the foundation for
the major you choose, learning the basic knowledge that will
give your education depth and context before moving on to
more specifc studies. You could say you spend that time
learning to, well, learn.

You can spend those frst two years of your degree taking
300-student lectures at a large, expensive university. Or you
could spend them taking small classes at a private college.
Or you could spend those frst two years getting to class at
PCC, enjoying top-quality classes that average just 23 students
— at a fraction of the cost. Ask yourself: which start is the
smartest start for you? (Hint: nearly six of every 10 freshmen
in Oregon are enrolled at a community college.)
PCC credits transfer easily to state universities in Oregon, and
with very few exceptions they are readily accepted out-of-
state, even at America’s most prestigious colleges and
universities.
And PCC even offers study-abroad opportunities in Florence,
Italy; Barcelona, Spain; Oaxaca, Mexico; Paris, France and
Costa Rica.
PCC offers the following transfer degrees:
Associate of Arts, Oregon Transfer Degree; Associate of
Science Degree; Associate of Science, Oregon Transfer in
Business; and Dual Enrollment partnerships with PSU, OSU, OIT
WGU, and Concordia University, and Marylhurst Universities.
You’ll discover more than 60 professional and technical
degree programs and certifcate programs to get you working
and succeeding in as little as two years. From accounting
or aviation to video production or welding, from dental
hygiene or graphic design to computer information systems
or engineering, from radiography or multimedia to marketing
or landscape technology, PCC has it all. Combining relevant
courses, real-world-experienced teachers and in-the workplace
authenticity, PCC will put you in the fast lane to a rewarding
career.

Let’s clear one thing up: If you think classes at PCC are going
to be easy, you’re in for quite a surprise.
Which absolutely does not mean that you can’t handle it
— your teachers and PCC itself provide tremendous support
and inspiration. But don’t worry, no matter your level of
preparedness, we’ll help you along the way. We know you’ve
got what it takes to succeed here.
Your courses refect the range of the world’s knowledge and
discovery, enhanced by a practical approach and a commitment
to creating lifelong learners and thinkers.
The faculty who bring you those courses are freed from the
pressure to land big research grants and publish a paper every
few months, so they can focus on teaching you and motivating
you to reach your goals. They take your success personally.
Standing behind PCC’s talented, committed, accessible faculty
are tremendous resources and facilities for your education. In
the last few years, PCC has invested almost $200 million in new
buildings on our three campuses and at the Southeast Center.
There are outstanding modern facilities for the performing
arts, the sciences, labs and libraries, student services, physical
education and recreation, and computer and distance learning
labs. Your PCC education is state-of-the-art (and state-of-the-
science, and state-of-the-career, and...).
Challenging Academics for a Challenging World
You don’t go to PCC alone. You go with a student community
that, no matter where they started, are all moving in the same
direction: forward. You go with teachers and staff who are
easy to get to know and easy to fnd when you need them. And
you go to PCC with a major network of support and services.
Maybe you’re coming straight from high school, and all you’ll
have to juggle are your classes. Or maybe you have a job, a
family, a disability — and for you the college equation is more
complex. Maybe you need career advising , or child care, or
help with academic or language or cultural issues. Whatever
you need, at PCC we’ll do everything we can to make college
happen for you. You’ll fnd fexibility, access and understand-
ing. You’ll fnd Women’s Resource Centers and a Multicultural
Center and job placement and internships and much more.
Whether attending college is easy for you or
presents a real challenge, either way, you
can do this.

Portland Community College is accredited by
the Northwest Commission on Colleges and
Universities, an institutional accrediting
body recognized by the Council for Higher
Education Accreditation and U.S. Department
of Education.


If you’ve seen very many college
brochures, you know that every school
heaps on the adjectives about the
beauty, convenience, and excitement
of their campus.
Well, we’ve got them covered.
And then some.
PCC’s multiple campuses each have a
different character and a different mix
of courses, programs and university
transfer options – but each one is
designed around you and your goals. Plus,
you can take your classes on any campus
that offers the courses.
The Sylvania Campus, in suburban
Southwest Portland between Tigard and
Lake Oswego, occupies a rolling, green
hillside overlooking the Tualatin Valley
and the Coast Range. Douglas frs, oaks,
maples and alders surround this large
campus, which is home to PCC’s nationally
respected nursing and dental programs,
as well as dozens of university transfer,
professional and technical majors plus
pre-college programs. The campus also
spotlights the fne arts and theater,
with an outstanding center for the
performing arts.
It’s a rich and rewarding urban
experience at the Cascade Campus, in
the revitalized North Portland area. This
centrally located campus, with easy
access to public transportation, is
growing fast and offers an exciting
atmosphere of expanding academic
services and campus facilities. In
addition to traditional academics and
career programs, Cascade is home to
the Skill Center, which brings people of
all ages the basic education needed to
begin a new life.
Twelve miles west of downtown Portland
near Oregon’s high-tech Silicon Forest,
set amid wetlands and farms, the Rock
Creek Campus is home to PCC’s Veterinary
Technology, Landscape Technology and
Building Construction programs.
Believe in a full college life with community, fun and friends.

You’ll also fnd the Environmental Studies
Center and exceptional facilities in the
Science and Technology Building. There’s
even an on-campus aircraft hangar where
students in the Aviation Maintenance
Technology program get hands-on
experience maintaining airplanes and
helicopters.
The Southeast Center at 82nd Avenue
and Division Street brings frst-year
university transfer courses, from art and
history to math and general science, as
well as many other education programs,
to students in this populous area of
Portland. With the latest learning spaces
and technology, the Center is a focal
point for professional/technical training
in Computer Applications and Offce
Systems, Management and Supervisory
Development, Industrial Occupations
and more.
You can’t study every second — you need
some balance. Lucky for you, campus life
is the good life at PCC, with activities,
events, organizations and opportunities
on each campus to help you fnd fun and
friends within this learning community
that is 88,000 strong.
Just meeting the diverse people at PCC is
entertaining and enlightening, but your
options don’t stop there.
If you’ve got the game, you can go
out for men’s or women’s PCC Panthers
basketball, playing intercollegiate
competition throughout the Northwest.
If you just want to play for grins, there
are intramural sports and recreation
opportunities. Each campus offers
facilities and equipment for ftness
and relaxation.
You can get involved in a theater
production, hone your leadership skills
in student government, join a social,
political or civic club that matches
your interests (Amnesty International,
Dodgeball, Soccer, Ski and Snowboarding,
Theater Arts, and Future Teachers, for
example) or even start your own, If
you want to do it, bank on being able
to at PCC.
Believe in a full college life with community, fun and friends.

A year or two after she arrived in America from Vietnam,
Tuyet-le Voiculescu, who goes by Le, was working as an
assembler at Tektronix in Portland. She soon found herself
wondering about how the instruments she was putting
together worked.
“I didn’t want to spend my life putting together a device
that I didn’t even understand,” Le said. “So I talked with my
manager, and she was fne with me going to school to learn
more.”
Le did it the hard way, working full-time at Tektronix while
taking classes in PCC’s Electronic Engineering Technology
program.
“It was a great experience,” she said, “because I was learn-
ing theory and discovering practical things in the lab at the
same time. PCC provided me the basic knowledge to get into
my career.”
Just fve years after coming to a new country and learning
a new language, Le graduated from PCC and went on to earn
her four-year degree at Oregon Institute of Technology.
At work, she’s ascended from assembler to technician to
hardware designer at Tektronix.
“I would absolutely recommend PCC as a great start, no
matter where you’re coming from and no matter where you
want to go. You’ll fnd help and support, and you really can
make it happen.”

“If you’re not working hard, you’re not learning.” Levi Howard
knows something about both learning and hard work. He was
28 years old when he enrolled at PCC, having served in the U.S.
Air Force.
“I knew right away that PCC was a great value and would be a
great opportunity for me,” Levi said from his offce at Intel,
where he is applying his Computer Information Systems
degree in his job.
“The classes were tough sometimes, but that’s a part of
learning. All the teachers were easy to talk with and very
nice. PCC helped me get an internship at Intel, which was a big
advantage for me.”
As Levi builds his career in computers, he recommends the
same formula that worked for him: hard work and PCC.
“The education and the experience I got from PCC were
defnitely worth the time I put in,” he said. “Whether you
want to get right to a job or you’re just getting your
education started, PCC will work for you.”

Hopes to: return someday
to teach at PCC
You could say that it took Kim Hatago a while to see her
future clearly. She and high school just never seemed to click,
so she dropped out, got a job at Pizza Hut and worked her way
up to supervisor.
“I knew I didn’t want to do that for the rest of my life,” Kim
said. “I also knew that going back to school was the only way
to change things. PCC had a program that would let me earn
my G.E.D. and then continue on, so I signed up.”
Then one day she had a vision … about vision.
“I opened up the PCC catalog and saw something about eye-
balls,” Kim remembered. “I thought it might be kind of cool.”
Kim enrolled in the Ophthalmic Medical Technology program,
and is now an eye care professional. Before you see an eye
doctor, you might see Kim, who performs the preliminary eye
exams, dilates your pupils and takes your history. She works at
Oregon Eye Specialists, who hired her even before she
graduated.
“I did my practicum here,” Kim said. “It’s really great that PCC
helps you get that kind of experience while you’re going to
school. I’ve never had the kind of support I found at PCC.”

When a 17-year-old Joel Campos Alvis arrived in Portland
from Peru, he found that learning English wasn’t his biggest
challenge. Raising people’s expectations would prove to be
even more diffcult.
“I remember my high school counselor told me I could be a
plumber or a carpenter, which is when I dropped out,” Joel
said. “I don’t think there’s any disgrace in either of those
jobs, but I could tell that all the counselor could see was a
Latino, not an individual.”
But Joel had his personal version of the American Dream, and
he knew an education was the only way to get it.
Joel’s dreams led him to one of America’s most prestigious
universities, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where
he received a fully paid fellowship – one of just four granted
each year. He is a graduate student in MIT’s elite Interna-
tional Development Group, and he will continue his education
at the London School of Economics.
Aiming high and dreaming big is Joel’s message to everyone,
especially people with a background like his. Just a few years
ago, he was learning how to read and write English at PCC.
Now Joel, also the father of a young daughter, plans to work
for the World Bank or the United Nations someday.
“It isn’t easy, and I’ve had so much help along the way
– without the early support of PCC and my teachers there I
don’t know where I’d be today,” Joel said. “But I hope every-
one will really believe that they can reach their dreams. I’m
the proof that it’s possible.”
“I came to this country without
material wealth but with many
dreams and desires to get a bet-
ter life for my family and myself,”
Joel said.

MARNEET LEWIS ’07
Degree: University Transfer
Unique resume item: African-American-part-
Creek-Indian who speaks Japanese
Best feature of PCC: academic focus
We’d list the various awards Marneet Lewis has won as a community advocate and a youth
leader, but we’d prefer to leave the forests standing. Let’s just say everyone from the
Portland Trailblazers to the City of Portland to the Creek Nation has honored her. She
has served on the Multnomah County Youth Commission for four years and has become an
expert at getting things done.
“That’s why I have such a wonderful relationship with PCC,” Marneet said. “I call it ‘back
to basics,’ which means that the focus is on the real reasons you attend college: going to
class, studying, learning.”
Accepted to private institutions including Willamette University, Linfeld College and
George Fox University, Marneet chose PCC because of the easy access to instructors – and
she knew her fellow students would push her.
“It’s a great mix of students here,” she said. “There are people right out of high school
plus a lot of people who have been out in the workforce and have lots of life experience.
It’s a different atmosphere from any other college I visited.”
With her goal of someday leading a nonproft organization that works with young people
of color, Marneet also appreciates PCC’s diversity.
“There’s a very good vibe around here when it comes to different kinds of people,” she
said. “Everyone is connected by the goal of learning and moving ahead and by the aca-
demic efforts we make each day. PCC is the place to fnd rewarding challenges.”
From all walks of life, students have seen their
futures take off from PCC. Need to see it?

If you’re from here, you already know. If not: So many national magazines, TV shows and
news surveys have listed Portland among the best places to live in the country that we’ve
stopped counting. But here’s one of the most recent: When Outside magazine devoted an
issue to “Eighteen Perfect Towns with Everything,” they put Portland on the cover.
Big city sophistication and small town pride; bright lights excitement and home-town
comfort; Pacifc Rim commerce and Pacifc Northwest ethics. Call it one very big classroom,
with the learning, internship and employment opportunities of a world-renowned creative
and business community (Wieden & Kennedy, NIKE, Intel) mixed with thousands of
innovative small and medium companies on their way up.

Why all the ink? Because
Portland is a town with,
well, everything.

PORTLAND HAS:
A million people in the metro area, and it seems like there is a great
coffeehouse and a wonderful restaurant for every one of them.
An incredible local music and live theater scene, with both
world-famous and brand new performers.
Hundreds of parks, ranging from Forest Park (the largest wilderness
park in any city in America) to the tranquil Japanese Garden.
A terrifc public transportation system that incorporates light rail,
modern streetcars and buses. And Portland is recognized as one of
the most bike-friendly cities in America, with a hundred-mile web of
bike paths that lead just about everywhere.
AND PORTLAND HAS:
Peaceful Chinese gardens, thumping downtown clubs, 10 bridges,
bald eagles soaring above the hills, police who ride bikes, a dance
foor that foats and 30-pound salmon swimming past the city
lights.
AND, YES, PORTLAND HAS:
Rain. More than Phoenix, less than New York or Miami. In mid-winter,
you will have some perfect library weather. But you will also have
cool, clear, sunny days. In spring and fall it will be warm and sunny.
Except when it’s not. So bring your shades, shorts and SPF 30; and
bring your Gore-Tex
®
.
OH, AND THE NORTHWEST HAS:
Range a little farther from PCC, say an hour or two, and you’ll quickly
discover that Oregon is one of the most geographically diverse (and
outdoor-activity-blessed) states in the nation.
Travel east, out through the basalt cliffs and huge waterfalls of the
world-famous Columbia River Gorge. You’ll fnd hundreds of miles of
hiking and mountain-biking trails. On the water, the windsurfng and
kiteboarding are legendary.
Or drive west, out through the rolling hills of Oregon’s famous wine
country. Soon you reach the Pacifc Ocean and clean, uncrowded
beaches that stretch for miles.
Go southeast out of Portland and you’ll climb into the Cascade
Mountains. In winter, 11,235-foot Mt. Hood and its national forest
are prime ski and snowboard country, with three ski areas (including
the famous Timberline Lodge), plus endless backcountry. In summer,
the mountains offer hiking, whitewater kayaking, mountain biking,
fshing in crystal alpine lakes and much more. Down the far slope of
the Cascades are the high desert and virtually year-round
sunshine of central Oregon.
YEP, PORTLAND RULES.


It’s easy to get started at PCC. We have an open admission policy, meaning you can enroll
whether or not you have a high school diploma or previous college experience. You do have
to demonstrate that you’re ready to take college-level courses (if you need them, there
are pre-college preparation programs). And remember that some programs have prerequi-
sites. Our admissions representatives and professional advisors (available on each campus)

this
It’s simple to apply online at www.pcc.
edu/admissions. Or use the admissions
form in this brochure.
Once you’ve applied, you’re ready for
placement testing and new student
orientation, which will answer your
questions and put your PCC education
on track. Orientations are available
online or can be scheduled throughout
the summer and before each term.
Apply Yourself
Applying early gives you many advan-
tages, including even more personal
attention, more time with your advi-
sor and a better selection of classes.
You should begin your admissions
process well in advance of registra-
tion, which starts about six weeks
before each term. Terms commence in
September, January, March and June.
Be Early


The Money
You already know that your PCC education is a tremendous value. What
you may not know is that there are several ways to make that value
even greater, including fnancial aid, scholarships and other benefts.
Talk to us — we’ll help you determine if and for what you are eligible.
PCC’s costs for 2007-2008 are:
Tuition: Oregon residents $68 per credit
General Fees: Approximately $70 per term as a
full-time student
Parking Fee: $33 per term
Books: Plan on $150-$200 per class
Costs subject to change. Call or check www.pcc.edu.
Financial Aid
There are three types of fnancial aid offered at PCC:
Grants and Scholarships: Need- or merit-based gift funds
that do not have to be repaid
Loans: Now-interest funds that must be repaid
Work-study: Part-time jobs from which you receive a
monthly paycheck
Financial aid reps will work with you and your family to determine your
eligibility, help you apply for aid and put together the right combination
to meet your needs. You can apply for aid beginning in January for the
following fall term, and it’s a long process, so once again, be early. That’s
the most important fnancial aid advice there is.
Veterans’ Benefits
PCC is certifed by the Veterans Administration as a veterans training
institution. You can contact the veterans offce, located at College
Center 246 on the Sylvania Campus: 503-977-4502.

and

Trying to get the real feel of PCC from the Web or from this brochure is like
trying to enjoy a great meal by reading the menu. To really be sure if this is the
place for you, you should visit our campuses, talk to students and faculty, check
out the facilities and experience the community. Begin your visit at the campus
admissions offce or just explore on your own. Spend some time in the Amo
DeBernardis College Center on the Sylvania Campus or the Student Centers at
Cascade and Rock Creek. In other words, see it and believe it.

Get Green at PCC
With our growing list of initiatives and contacts, PCC can connect you to resources
in the college and the surrounding community to learn about sustainability issues
– and do something about it. Help clean up a natural area, learn about environ-
mental responsibility of all types, or just put your green idea to use with the help
of our sustainability coordinator. Visit www.pcc.edu/sustainability to get started!
