Here For You

School is IN! Staying at home doesn't mean you can't still utilize educational resources!

Are you out of the dorm and staying home from your university? Are you a high school student who would like to get started on college classes now? Lost your job and not sure where to go? Or maybe you're a senior, and you want to find a new way to connect with others while you are distancing yourself for safety. 

As Mid-Columbia residents stay close to home amid the COVID-19 pandemic, education can help all of us overcome social isolation. The current crisis will not change Columbia Gorge Community College's mission of "Building Dreams, Transforming Lives." What IS changing is how we're delivering that educational experience to you. We've expanded online classes and are connecting our community with vital resources. Keep reading to learn more.

Credit Classes

All CGCC classes for spring term will be delivered online through Moodle, CGCC's online content delivery platform, or via Zoom, an app that lets you see and hear others in real time through video conferencing. The following options are available:
  • Spring term college credit courses (10 weeks) 
  • Spring term condensed college courses (5 weeks)
Classes start April 6. We help you register in two simple steps:
  1. Complete CGCC's admissions form. You don't have to wait to see if you are accepted - fill out the form, and you're IN! 
  2. Call Student Services at (541) 506-6011, option 2 for an advising session
