Oregon Tech and MHCC Agreement

The Oregon Institute of Technology (Oregon Tech) and Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) have signed an agreement that will allow qualified Oregon Tech students who began their educational careers at MHCC to be awarded degrees from the community college for work completed at Oregon Tech.

The reverse transfer agreement, signed by Oregon Tech President Chris Maples and MHCC President Debra Derr, will enable students who transferred from MHCC to Oregon Tech to receive an associate degree while continuing to work toward a bachelor’s degree.

“I’m excited to provide students the opportunity to have all the hard work they put in at Mt. Hood better represented on their transcripts,” said President Maples. “We currently have about 30 students at Oregon Tech who will immediately benefit from this agreement.”

How it works:
If a student has transferred to Oregon Tech from MHCC before earning their Associate's Degree, they can take their Oregon Tech credits and reverse transfer them to MHCC to potentially earn an Associate's Degree.

Benefits of this program:

  • It is free!
  • It allows you to add an additional degree to your resume.
  • It opens up new job opportunities.
  • It gives you more earning potential.

A signing ceremony to commemorate the partnership took place Saturday, February 22, at 3:00 p.m. in Portland.
