Many SOCC classes will transfer as degree requirements or electives to four-year institutions. Ultimately, the decision rests with the transfer institution. In many cases, SOCC has articulated agreements for specific courses and programs. If transferring from another school, have copy of that transcript sent to SOCC for evaluation. Contact the Counseling Center for more information. Pathways Certificates are available for career exploration, and professional development. AA degree options are articulated with Portland State University to move seamlessly to earning a bachelors in Social Science with an ECE at Portland State without no loss of credits. A transfer is also established with the Eastern Oregon University CUESTE Teacher Preparation cohort program for those seeking Teaching Licensure in Oregon.
