In an effort to assist Oregon community college students to successfully transition to a four-year college or university, Oregon’s community colleges and four-year universities collaborate each year on a state-wide tour to all seventeen Oregon community colleges. Community college students across the state are welcomed and encouraged to join in these fun, informative events, whether they are actively planning to transfer, or just starting to consider their four-year degree opportunities.
Oregon Transfer Day at Clatsop Community College is Thursday, February 13, 10am – 1pm, in the 3rd floor atrium of Towler Hall, 1660 Lexington Avenue, Astoria.
Representatives from 14 colleges and universities will be at Clatsop Community College to answer questions about the college transfer process. They will share information about the admissions process, available majors, housing, etc. The following schools will participate: Eastern Oregon University, Linfield College, Oregon State University, Oregon State University – Cascades, Oregon Tech, Pacific University, Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland State University, Southern Oregon University, The Art Institute of Portland / The International Culinary School, University of Idaho, University of Portland, University of Western States, and Washington State University, Vancouver.
Clatsop Community College also offers degree partnerships with Oregon State University and Portland State University that allow co-enrollment at the community college and university. The benefits of participating in a dual enrollment program will be explained in a workshop with representatives from OSU and PSU on Thursday, February 13, 1pm-2pm, in Towler Hall, Room 306.
Clatsop students can receive academic advising, attend university events, and prepare to successfully transfer while participating in a dual enrollment program. Presenters will answer students’ questions and explain how dual enrollment programs work. Many dual enrollment students take classes at two schools simultaneously. University representatives will also address how to take advantage of federal financial aid to enroll in college courses at two schools in the same term.
