Testing and Academic Advising
We offer placement testing by appointment for reading/writing and math. The math placement test, ALEKS, can be done at home through your MyPCC. However, you can do ALEKS at our center if it’s more convenient for you.
We also do proctored testing for PCC students taking PCC classes. Contact your instructor to see if they will agree to us proctoring your test. Contact us to set a time and have the instructor email the test to our center.
We also offer general academic advising by appointment for incoming and returning students. Unfortunately, we are unable to do advising for academic probation and suspension. Please call one of the Academic Advising Offices at one of the main campuses for probation/suspension advising. The closest office to the Hillsboro Center is Rock Creek. You can contact them at 971-722-7297.
Study Room and Computer Lab
Due to limited space, currently-enrolled Hillsboro Center students have priority use of the Study Room and Computer Lab. Other PCC students may be asked to give up a computer. Printing is for Hillsboro Center students only. PCC Online Learning and other PCC students can seek computer resources at the Rock Creek Campus.
Books can be purchased online or from the Rock Creek bookstore.
