Why UCC?

2020 Happy UCC Graduates

It is always a good time to invest in yourself so that you can learn and grow. It's true. There are many prestigious options out there. Yet, UCC is a stepping stone to some of the most prestigious universities in Oregon and beyond. If you find yourself living in Douglas County now, why leave? UCC offers scholarships, athletic programs, degree partnerships, industry connections, and more. Plus, UCC is a small, friendly college campus. Our story is laid out here. You're invited to see for yourself that UCC is your best college choice!


Want to attend a university? We'll help get you there. We have transfer programs that allow you to save some money, build your study skills, and help you start as a junior in the Oregon university system or virtually any university you would like to attend. So you can start college as a UCC Riverhawk and finish as an OSU Beaver, SOU Raider, UO Duck, or whatever you like!

Looking for a career? UCC is your path to a career. We have career technical programs in the right industries that need workers: Automotive, Business Administration, Dental Assisting, Emergency Medical Technician, Engineering, Forestry, Fire Science, Nursing, Welding, and more.

Additionally, for hands-on learners, we have apprenticeship programs that allow you to mix classroom and on-the-job training. Many of these jobs are high-wage jobs like electricians, millwrights, and industrial mechanic.

For those with limited time, we also have online programs that allow you to do ALL of your studies online. You may not need to travel to campus at all! That is convenient. Clearly, UCC has something to offer for almost any type of learner.


Our faculty is second to none. They are experts in their field and care about teaching. No doubt you care about learning. So, we are a winning combination! Take a look at just a small sampling of our distinguished faculty.
