Imagine graduating debt-free!

PBC is strongly committed to helping make your educational goals a reality without leaving you in debt for decades to come.

How can we do this?

First: Mannahouse subsidizes a large portion of the cost of operating the college. This allows us to keep tuition relatively low in comparison to many schools.

Second: the class schedule and fee schedule have been arranged to allow students to work and pay their way through school. In fact, more than 91% of our students graduate debt-free!

Most students are able to find a good part-time job in the Portland area, go to school until noon, and then work in the afternoons. Some are able to commute together while others take public transportation, such as the city bus line which runs within one block of campus.
