International Students

Clackamas Community College welcomes students from around the world

CCC is a public, two-year institution located 15 miles south of Portland, Oregon in Oregon City. With a small town atmosphere that is minutes from the largest city in Oregon, CCC offers international students a broad introduction to life in the United States while earning an excellent college education.

    Do You Need English Language Training?

    Students who need to improve their English language skills can enroll in the Program for Intensive English (PIE), which provides language instruction to prepare students for college-level courses. The program offers classes for all skill levels. Students at the advanced level may co-enroll in some college classes outside of the PIE. Upon completing the PIE, students are guaranteed admission to the college. For more information about the PIE, please email Tina Nikolopoulos,

    Are You Ready for College?

    Students can complete a variety of degree and certificate programs at an affordable cost-about half the cost of university programs. Many CCC students earn a two-year associate’s degree before transferring to a university for the final two years of a bachelor’s degree. CCC students who earn this degree may enter one of Oregon’s four-year universities as a third-year student. CCC also offers a co-admissions program and partners with other four-year institutions in the state. For more information about CCC’s degree and certificate programs, contact Michelle Baker at
