PCC DUAL CREDIT-WHAT IS IT?
High school students throughout the Portland area receive college credits for
some of their high school courses through an "arculated credit" program at
Portland Community College called PCC Dual Credit. By the me these
students graduate from high school they already have a head start on postsecondary educaon free of charge, saving both me and money as they get
started on their next steps in their educaon.
Students can earn PCC credit in:
•
University Transfer credit that counts toward a bachelor's
degree in subject areas such as Engineering, Health, History,
Math, Music, and Wring.
•
Career & Technical Educa&on courses which lead to an
associate degree or cerficate in programs such as Automove
Service Technology, Building Construcon Technology, Computer Applicaons Systems, Early Educaon and Family Studies,
Welding, and many more!
Courses are said to be "arculated" when the high school course has the
same content and outcomes as the college course. Although taught in the
high school, the course materials, content and instruconal quality are
consistent with the same courses offered by PCC. Because of that
arculaon, a student is able, following high school graduaon, to transion
smoothly to the next level of college courses in the subject area.
Since PCC Dual Credit courses are the result of an alignment between high
school and college courses requiring college level work, not all high school
courses are eligible. Check with your high school counselor to find out which
courses at your high school are part of the PCC Dual Credit program or visit
www.pcc.edu/dualcredit and get a head start on your own college and career
preparaon!

CREDIT TRANSFER
TRANSFERRING CREDITS
PCC credit hours earned can be transferred to other colleges and universies
and applied toward degree requirements counted as elecves.
There are many factors that affect how and if another college or university
will accept your credit for transfer. The grade that you earned can make a
difference, as well as what was covered in the class. Start and keep a file with
all your PCC Dual Credit coursework, syllabi and porZolios to share with the
colleges you may a-end later. Having informaon beyond the grade on the
transcript can demonstrate course content and can help to get your credits
accepted for transfer or a higher standing in a sequence of courses.
PCC college credits will transfer to any Oregon Community College and most
programs within the Oregon University System. Schools outside of the
Oregon system determine whether or not they will accept credits on a case
by case basis. It is your responsibility to consult with the college or university
you wish to a-end regarding the transferability of college credits.
