Oregon’s Colleges and Universities: In Person or Online

February 14, 2024

Many careers with high levels of responsibility require at least a bachelor’s degree. Hundreds of fascinating majors and quality programs are available across the state, from traditional or emerging fields including veterinary medicine, computer science, journalism, the arts, engineering, and agricultural studies. Oregon’s colleges and universities offer diverse and high-quality programs of study.

Urban or rural, big or small, there may be a university in Oregon that fits you. You can even start your education at a community college and then transfer to a four-year university in Oregon. Can’t move away to go to school? Not a problem. Check out the numerous distance education alternatives (online courses or classes at different locations) on each university’s website.

Oregon’s universities offer many ways to help you pay for your education, including scholarships, grants, work-study, and loans (see the “Help Paying for College” article in this publication for more information).
