Students admitted to the OSU/Clackamas Community College Degree Partnership Program who choose to take courses at both schools in the same term may be eligible to receive financial aid based on the combined enrollment. Degree Partnership Program students are asked to declare a home school. The designated home school determines whether Clackamas Community College or OSU will disburse your financial aid. There are several factors related to the choice of the OSU/Clackamas Community College home school:
- Students in the OSU/Clackamas Community College Degree Partnership Program can use different enrollment patterns for different terms:
o All classes are at Clackamas Community College
o All classes are at OSU
o Some classes are at Clackamas Community College and some at OSU in the same term
- The primary factor in determining the home school for the OSU/Clackamas Community College Degree Partnership Program is the degree that the student is currently working toward:
o Associate’s Degree -> Clackamas Community College is the home school
o Baccalaureate Degree -> OSU is the home school
- Students who have taken or are taking at least one 300 level or higher course will have OSU as the home school.
- The level of courses you take is a consideration. Clackamas Community College cannot count 300 or 400 level courses toward the enrollment needed to disburse financial aid.
- Students have to be enrolled in at least one course at the home school. For example, Clackamas Community College cannot disburse financial aid for a student who is not taking any classes at Clackamas Community College.
- The transferability of Clackamas Community College courses you take is a consideration if you receive your aid from OSU. OSU cannot count courses that do not transfer into OSU toward the enrollment needed to disburse financial aid. For example, a student is enrolled in 6 credits at Clackamas Community College and 6 credits at OSU, and has designated OSU as home school. If the 6 credits at Clackamas Community College consist of Math 112 and WR 121, then OSU can count those 6 credits along with the 6 credits being taken at OSU to make the student full-time. If, however, the courses at Clackamas Community College are Math 112 and Drafting 140, OSU can only count the math class since the drafting course does not transfer into OSU. In this second example, OSU would consider that the student is enrolled for 9 credits for financial aid purposes. (Clackamas Community College may consider the same student to be enrolled full-time for the term).
