Degree Partnership Program Student - Getting Started Steps

Welcome! We're happy you're here. The Degree Partnership Program offered by Central Oregon Community College and Oregon State University is a great opportunity that allows you to pursue a bachelor’s degree at OSU while being jointly admitted at COCC. 

Getting started is easy and we're here to help you succeed! Just follow these steps and you'll be on the path to a great education.

Have questions? Attend a Degree Partnership Program Webinar (optional) where admissions coordinators from OSU-Cascades and COCC will guide you through the process.


1 Apply for Admission at OSU

Complete the Oregon State University admissions application. Don't worry, COCC will automatically receive your information from OSU and we will make sure you are admitted with us as well.

2 Explore How to Pay for College

Every student needs a plan to pay for college. As a DPP student you will be able to explore your options through both COCC and OSU. Learn more about tuition and fees, scholarships, and other payment options. 

3 Complete OSU's Enrollment Steps

Since you will be admitted at both institutions, you will need to complete OSU's enrollment steps (including attending new student orientation) before moving forward with advising and registration. 

4 Activate your COCC Account

Set up your COCC account by resetting your password.

5 Advising

Once you have completed your enrollment steps through OSU, sign up for your advising appointment.

After your advising appointment, you can register for classes through your Bobcat Web Account.
