Clackamas has formed degree partnership programs with three Oregon universities: Oregon State University, Portland State University and the Oregon Institute of Technology.

And it offers a seamless pathway to completing your bachelor's degree.

Scholarships play an important role in college success for hundreds of Clackamas students every year.
