PCC students invited to explore four-year college options

Photos and Story by

At Oregon’s public universities alone, the number of community college students transferring increased significantly by 80 percent in the last ten years. Oregon Transfer Days is designed to help those students transition smoothly.

Students don't have to walk through a maze to find out about four-year degree options. Oregon Transfer Days at PCC will provide all the info they need.

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 statewide tour to all seventeen Oregon community colleges, including PCC. It’s a chance for them to meet with college and university representatives, and learn more about each institution’s offerings, admissions requirements, choosing courses wisely, navigating college costs and financial aid, and tools to make their transition as seamless as possible.

This year, Oregon Transfer Days will happen at PCC later this month. The schedule includes:

  • 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 17, Rock Creek Campus (17705 N.W. Springville Road).
  • 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 18, Sylvania Campus (12000 S.W. 49th Ave.).
  • 10 a.m.- 1 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 19, Cascade Campus (705 N. Killingsworth St.).
  • 4-6 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 19, Southeast Center (2305 S.E. 82nd and Division).

For more information, contact Kathleen Bradach at (971) 722-4578 or by e-mail

The tour is administered by a task force of Oregon Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (ORACRO).
