Clackamas Community College, with three campuses in the Portland metro area, provides education and training for people in all stages of life. CCC offers transfer credit classes for those working toward degrees, dozens of career and technical programs leading to jobs, work force services and adult basic education.

CCC's main campus is conveniently located in Oregon City, just three miles from I-205. Our beautiful 165-acre campus is a hub of community activity including sports, arts, events and outdoor recreation. Classes are offered days, evenings, in condensed formats and online to meet the needs of our students.

CCC at Harmony Community Campus is well-equipped to train students for jobs in the expanding health care field. Harmony houses the thriving health education programs, and also offers a full array of student services. The Harmony Community Campus is centrally located in North Clackamas, close to the Clackamas Town Center and the Green Line light rail.

CCC's Wilsonville campus (the Wilsonville Training Center), located on the east side of the Town Center Loop, serves as the Utility Training Center for employees of area utilities including Portland General Electric and PacifiCorp. We offer degrees and certificates in Energy Resource Management. The Wilsonville campus also offers a growing number of academic courses.

CCC has formed degree partnership programs with three Oregon university partners. These partnerships allow students to be jointly admitted and enrolled at both CCC and one of our four-year partners: Oregon State University, Portland State University and the Oregon Institute of Technology. This program saves students thousands of dollars and provides a seamless pathway toward completion of a bachelor's degree.

Scholarships play an important role in college success for hundreds of CCC students every year. CCC is proud to have one of the most active community college foundations in the state, awarding more than $600,000 in scholarships last year. Anyone who is enrolled at CCC, plans to enroll at CCC or transfer from CCC to a four-year college or university; has a 2.0 GPA or higher; has a high school diploma, GED or high school equivalency can meet the requirements for at least one scholarship.

Veterans are an important priority at CCC, and the college's Veterans Education and Training Center provides vital services to military veterans and their families. The college is home to the Army Strong Community Center, providing life resources to military family members, active military and veterans from all branches of the service.
