Dual Enrollment

Columbia Gorge Community College (CGCC) offers two types of dual enrollment programs:

Degree Partnerships

The Degree Partnership Program provides a unique opportunity for students to enroll in classes at colleges and universities throughout Oregon, while still maintaining their eligibility and enrollment at CGCC. Students have access to services and expertise at each school, greatly expanding their resources and options.

The Degree Partnership program helps students tailor their education plan to fit their personal goals, preferences and timelines. Students will work with advisors from both institutions to make sure every course counts toward their degree.
