Portland Bible College is a ministry of Mannahouse who helps subsidize a significant portion of the costs of running our college. This allows us to provide our students with an extremely affordable Bible College education. In addition, we are working hard to create new scholarship opportunities to further assist our students in graduating debt free!

Private Grants & Scholarships
Private grants, loans, and scholarships that do not require federal participation are generally accepted by PBC. It is up to each individual student to determine his/her qualification and application for the scholarship.
The student needs to inform the Finance Office or Registrar if there are any requirements on the school’s part in order to obtain the funds.
PBC is not a participating school in the Federal Financial Aid system and therefore, under the current tax code, is generally not eligible for most federal aid including FAFSA grants and loans, or tuition-related tax deductions. We also do not provide 1098T forms.
Veterans Tuition Benefits
Most of our in-person programs are approved for Veteran Affairs (VA) educational benefits. Our Online programs are not eligible for VA benefits. If you are an eligible veteran or dependent, contact the Registrar before registration so that your enrollment can be certified by the VA. Click here to find out more.
