The two-year Elementary Educator AAOT Transfer Pathway provides students with the opportunity to explore a career in K-5 teaching while earning required lower division coursework for transfer. Students may begin the Pathway while still in high school through available dual credit options. Or, students may start the Pathway upon enrollment at CGCC. Upon completion, students will leave CGCC with an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree augmented by specific introductory education courses.

The Elementary Educator Transfer Pathway curriculum has been developed in collaboration with Oregon State University (OSU) and provides a seamless transfer opportunity to OSU’s Bachelor of Science in Teaching and Elementary Education program. The Pathway provides opportunities for engaging with OSU Education faculty even in the first two years of study. Students may also choose to enroll through the CGCC/ OSU Degree Partnership Program opening doors to a variety of services and expertise at both schools.
