Frequently Asked Questions

What is dual enrollment?

Dual Enrollment enables students to concurrently enroll with LBCC and Oregon Tech while working towards their bachelor's degree.  Dually enrolled students can combine the credits together taken at both schools each term to show their full load for financial aid purposes.

What opportunities are provided through dual enrollment?

  • Optimal credit transfer
  • Increased flexibility for class scheduling
  • Advising at both schools
  • Coordination of Financial Aid
  • Access to student services at each institution
  • Transcript Sharing

Can I begin at Oregon Tech before I have finished my associate's degree?

Yes, Oregon Tech does not require an associate's degree for admission as a transfer student.  If you are working towards your associate's degree, contact Oregon Tech's Admissions Office to discuss degree pathways to make sure you are staying on track with your goals.

How do I apply?

If you have not already applied to Oregon Tech, you need to complete their admissions application.  All applicants must meet Oregon Tech's freshmen or transfer admission requirements.  The deadline to apply is 3 weeks prior to the start of your intended term of enrollment.  You will want to apply as early as possible, and make sure to send your official high school and college transcripts to Oregon Tech. 

Can dually enrolled students access financial aid at each institution?

While the credits a student is taking are combined from both schools to show their full load, financial aid can only be awarded from one school.  Students should contact Oregon Tech's financial aid office to designate which school will host their financial aid (referred to as the Home Institution).  The Home Institution distributes financial aid to the student, and the student is responsible for taking care of the account at their partner school.  Students must be enrolled in at least 6 credits at their Home Institution to receive financial aid.  Contact dollars@oit.edu or 541-885-1280 for more information.
