Linfield College’s Adult Degree Program has a long standing affiliation with Clatsop. 108 quarter credits of community college coursework earned at Clatsop with grades of C or better can be transferred towards a Linfield bachelor’s degree.  This equals 72 semester credits of the 125 credits you need for graduation at Linfield.  See the Transfer Guide for Clatsop Community College for further information.

There is a Linfield Advisor who is readily available to meet with Clatsop Community College students to help them map out their education from Clatsop to Linfield College’s bachelor’s degrees and certificates. The Linfield advisor recognizes that everyone has a unique situation and will work with each student to decide whether or not you want to complete your Associate Degree first, and then transfer to Linfield College for your Bachelor’s degree, or if you are ready to transfer now to the bachelor’s degree.  Learn about the transition from an associate's to a bachelor's degree in our blog article by Linfield Advisor Virginia MacCallum.
