Clackamas Community College (CCC) has three locations in this part of Oregon. The Oregon City campus is the largest of them all, boasting more than 150 acres of grounds on which students can manage their schoolwork. Established in the late 1960s to accommodate students at the southern end of the Portland metro area, the CCC web eventually expanded to include campuses in Wilsonville and Harmony Community Campus. Today, more than 25,000 students attend classes at the Oregon City campus.

Two-year transfer degrees are offered as well as specific technical training courses for students wishing to enter the workforce immediately. The school has shown a commitment to providing all types of educational services for local residents. Aside from the college-level studies, opportunities are available to complete GED coursework, take ESL classes and continue with other levels of education.


The major degrees available are the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer Degree (known as the AAOT), the Associate of Science Oregon Transfer Degree (ASOT), the Associate of General Studies (ASG), the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) and other Certificates of Completion.

There are many opportunities for students hoping to get a two-year degree in the arts and sciences and transfer to a baccalaureate institution to get their bachelor’s degree. Programs in English, Education, Art, Foreign Language and Music accompany degree coursework in Mathematics, Business and Science. Technical programs are extensive, from Drafting and Electronic Engineering to Welding Technology. Allied Health Programs continue to grow in popularity and a full slate of majors from Nursing to Dental Assistant Technology are available.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Applicants can find most of the materials they will need to get started online. The online application is required of all students, in addition to the requirements which may be necessary for a specific program. Proof that high school-level coursework has been completed must be submitted by students hoping to attend college classes, though the school can help students complete these requirements if needed.

Students applying to the Nursing Program, the Clinical Lab Assistant/Dental Asst./Medical Asst. courses of study or the International student programs will need to fill out additional forms prior to admission and/or submit proofs of vaccinations and clear background checks. Consult the school website for specific program requirements.

Financial Aid

The Financial Services Office can help students plan out how they will pay for the cost of higher education. All students will need to fill out a FAFSA and should include the CCC Oregon City code of 004878.

The main sources of financial aid can be broken down into four parts: grants, scholarships, loans and employment. Federal grants may be secured which will not require repayment at any time by the student. Loan terms can vary, but in some cases students will not be responsible for interest until after all of their studies have been completed. Work-study employment is offered first to students who have qualified. The CCC Foundation hands out more than $500,000 in scholarship money every year.

In addition, financial aid advising sessions are held every Monday and Thursday afternoon in Roger Rook Hall for students to come and ask questions.

There is no one type of student here – there are just as many students seeking additional career training as those who are entering the college straight out of high school. Student life can be as active as the student wishes, as there are clubs in government, activities and intramural athletics to enjoy. The Student Activities Office is located in the Community Center, Room 152.
