The Degree Partnership Program (DPP) promotes educational attainment and bachelor's degree completion by allowing students to be jointly admitted and concurrently enrolled at Oregon State University and Linn-Benton Community College. Previously referred to as the "Dual Enrollment Program", DPP was established in 1998 by Oregon State University and Linn-Benton Community College. Students complete a single admission application and may combine credits for financial aid eligibility.
DPP Program Goals:
- Improve student access, success, and baccalaureate degree completion.
- Expand student options for college-level services and curriculum.Improve academic program articulation.
- Facilitate university/community college dual enrollment.
Advantages for Students:
- One application process and fee for admission to both institutions.
(Note: Graduate students are not eligible for DPP)

- Tuition savings for students.
- Greater access to more classes and flexibility in scheduling
