Community College

Two-year colleges offer comprehensive programs that lead to an associate degree or a certificate in a specified field. Courses of study include a liberal arts/transfer curriculum that provides the courses for the first 2 years leading to a baccalaureate degree; occupational/technical programs that prepare students for employment or assist those already employed to upgrade their skills; developmental education programs that help students improve their basic academic skills; and courses that respond to individuals’ and communities’ social, intellectual and recreational interests.
 
Highlights
  • Save money; attend a local community college for the first 2 years and then transfer to a 4-year college to complete your baccalaureate degree
  • Oregon Promise Grant– A state grant that covers some or all tuition at any Oregon community college for recent high school graduates and GED recipients.
  • Career Pathways – Provides visual roadmaps of career-technical certificate programs at all Oregon Community Colleges.
  • Oregon Transfer Degree- these degrees are designed for students who want to complete the first two years of college education, with flexibility to transfer to any insitution within the Oregon University Stytem (OUS). Students must talk to individual schools for additional information.
  • Most community colleges offer courses online, at night or on weekends
Success Tips when Applying
  • Each community college has individual scholarship programs. Don’t overlook these opportunities!
  • Create the same type of application plan that you would for 4-year colleges
  • If a student plans to transfer to a 4-year university after graduating, they should meet with a community college advisor and ensure that courses meet the transfer requirements.
  • Apply for dual enrollment, in which you take some courses at the community college and some at the university!
