Our Philosophy on Student Debt
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, formerly City Bible Church, subsidizes a large portion of the cost for operating the college. This allows us to keep tuition relatively low in comparison to many schools.
Second, the class schedule and fees schedule have been arranged to allow students to work and pay their way through school. In fact, more than 85% 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.
