​Opportunity Knocks is a program in which high school juniors and seniors (minimum age requirement is 16)​ in the Beaverton School District may take a credit class at Portland Community College. Students may enrich or extend their learning while gaining college experience and credit. Tuition is paid for by the Beaverton School District. Students eligible for free/reduced lunch will have books and Trimet passes covered as well. You must earn a 'C' or better in your class to be eligible to sign up for another term. In most cases the class will be added to the student's BSD transcript. Students must present their transcript to their school's Registrar to have the class added to their PCC transcript.​​

To sign up for an Opportunity Knocks class follow these steps:
  1. Find a class that matches your interest and works with your schedule, keeping in mind:
    • ​​​​Comparable class must not be already offered at home high school (unless class is full)

    • This online form will open on the first day of the term's registration window. It will not work before then.
    • Do NOT pay for the course out-of-pocket (though you might get some emails from PCC). BSD will not reimburse families for courses paid out-of-pocket.
