LBCC/OSU Degree Partnership Program

McKenzie Hall 111, 541-917-4237,

Each year, more than 3,000 students are enrolled in this innovative dual-enrollment program that allows students to take classes at both LBCC and Oregon State University, while using financial aid to pay for their classes at both institutions (if qualified).  Students pay OSU tuition for classes taken at OSU and LBCC tuition for classes taken at LBCC. Students who want to transfer to OSU are encouraged to apply to the Degree Partnership Program as soon as they are eligible, even if they don’t choose to take classes at OSU right away.  Being dual-enrolled protects students from changes to their major coursework at OSU, and also gives students access to classes and services at both institutions.  Students taking courses at both institutions have full access to services at both schools, including OSU’s Dixon Recreation Center, Student Health Center, University Counseling and Psychological Services, the OSU craft center, plus many clubs and student organizations. Dual-enrollment students not taking classes at OSU can opt to pay partial fees for access to certain services, like the Student Health Center and Dixon Recreation Center. Dual-enrollment students also have access to OSU housing, even if they choose to take all of their classes at LBCC initially.

Students who meet OSU’s freshman admissions requirements can sign-up for the program by checking a box on their OSU application: Students who don't meet OSU's admissions requirements can start at LBCC apply to OSU and the Degree Partnership Program as a transfer student once they have:
