Expanded Options Program

The Expanded Options Program (EOP) was created in 2005 through Senate Bill 300 (SB 300) to provide students with additional options to continue or complete their education and to allow them to earn concurrent high school and college credits through Oregon’s community colleges and universities.

If accepted into the program, students take classes on or through Umpqua Community College, and the student's sponsoring high school covers the cost of tuition and fees. To be eligible to apply, the student must be:

  • 16 years of age or older at the time of enrollment and in grade 11 or 12
  • Currently enrolled in high school, and
  • On track to complete course requirements for graduation

In order to determine if you are eligible to take courses, please contact your high school counselor. Some high schools in the area have a waiver and do not participate in the program. Umpqua Community College’s EOP works with the following high schools: Baker Charter, Camas Valley, Douglas, Glide, Elkton, North Douglas, Oakland, Oregon Virtual Academy, Phoenix, South Umpqua, and Yoncalla.

Once approved by the high school, the student must complete the following steps:

  • Apply for admissions (mark dual credit)
  • Have your high school counselor or assigned staff member fill out the UCC EOP Google Docs Authorization Form. This will allow you to be coded as EOP for registration.
  • Take any necessary placement tests and the online orientation to UCC.
  • Register for the course through Self-Service Banner or in person at the Welcome Center.
  • Purchase your books. Some high schools cover this expense, and others do not. Please check with your school.
  • Start classes on the first day of the Academic Term.
