Online Courses: I have never taken any online courses before, but I do not consider online classes a good idea of getting enough education students need. However, I cannot say that it's not a way of educating students. I just do not think it is enough.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I think everything is great and everyone just simply focus on their goal. If I was a new student at Portland Community College, I would probably be confuse by what I see people do in class or out of class.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The School supplies and classes charges is very fair and I'm happy with the School supplies and classes charges amount. Hopefully everything continues as there are in present. As for financial aid, I'm even more excited because I received just enough to cover my classes charges and School supplies amount. However, sometimes it's just not quite enough to go through so I pay the rest of the money to continue my education. Receiving financial aid is amazing.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Unlike universities with sometimes 100 students in a class, PCC is conducive for intimate learning, with small class sizes that allow for good one-on-one instruction. Even though PCC enrolls some 83,000 students, the campuses are spread out so that there isn't too much crowding on one particular campus. Even then, though, parking can still be a problem, as it's the no. 1 thing students list among their complaints about the school. 

In terms of students, you will find people from every walk of life at PCC, as the College draws students from all over. However, one drawback to students with the main goal of furthering their education is that it can be hard to make friends sometimes. Nevertheless, PCC students are still very friendly and welcoming; it's just that being a community college makes it so people come to class and then go home. PCC staff is very friendly, as well. Sometimes, you may see your instructor as not just someone teaching you, but someone you can go to as a mentor and friend. Instructors are usually very interested in the general success of their students.
