Oregon State University participates in the Degree Partnership Program with community colleges in Oregon and Hawaii. The program allows dual enrollment at both Oregon State and community colleges.
The Degree Partnership Program (DPP) promotes educational attainment and bachelor's degree completion by allowing students to be jointly admitted and concurrently enrolled at Oregon State University and Oregon or Hawaii community colleges. Oregon University System (OUS) institutions collectively offer over 50 partnerships with community colleges, as well as similar agreements among its own institutions and with Oregon Health and Science University.
Previously referred to as the "Dual Enrollment Program", the DPP was established in fall 1998 by Oregon State University and Linn-Benton Community College. Students complete a single admission application for both institutions and may combine credits for financial aid eligibility. They gain flexibility in completing a degree with access to more classes through the community college, on-site at OSU, and with online courses offered though Oregon State Ecampus.
The program is open to all U.S. citizens and residents pursuing their bachelor's degree. Many students in the program also earn an associate degree.
International students may also participate in the program but should be sure they meet our requirements for international students.
The goals of this partnership are to:
