Dual enrollment makes it easier to tailor your education to fit your goals and timelines. You'll work with advisors at both schools to make sure every course counts toward your degree. For more transfer options, see the University Transfer website.

Benefits of Dual Enrollment

  • One application process for both schools
  • Advising available from both schools
  • Increased flexibility in scheduling with access to more classes
  • Coordinated financial aid and scholarships
  • Easier transition from PCC to university
  • Most affordable route to your degree (You pay each school's respective tuition rate)
  • Reverse transfer is easy for students dual-enrolled at a 4-year institution. Reverse transfer allows the 4-year university to easily send transcripts to PCC, who will then evaluate your record to see if you have earned an associate degree. Email reversetransfer@pcc.edu to learn more.

Begin your journey at PCC

PCC offers a wide variety of courses and a variety of locations throughout Portland. During your first two years leading to a bachelor's degree, you will find smaller class sizes, personal attention, as well as lower tuition. As you begin the transition to your four-year institution, you may want to take classes at both campuses - that's where dual enrollment comes in. Get co-admitted, then work with advisors at both schools to get accurate information and have a smooth transition between schools.
