The Clackamas Community College Difference

For over 50 years, Clackamas Community College has made education possible by providing innovative programs and support of the current and future change makers of Clackamas County. Whether students are pursuing a degree, seeking technical and career training to be more competitive in the workforce or returning for continued and lifelong learning, CCC provides support both inside and outside the classroom.


As an institution that strives to provide affordable education, CCC tuition is one of the most reasonably priced community colleges in the state of Oregon. However, despite being more affordable than most, more students than ever are applying for financial aid. Last year, Clackamas Community College Foundation provided hundreds of scholarships, over $737,000 in 2020-21, to reduce the financial burdens for our college students.

The ELC Giving Tree

Clackamas Community College would like to invite you to be a part of a community-wide effort to help preserve and maintain what has long been a gem on the Oregon City Campus – the Environmental Learning Center.

For $250 a leaf will be handcrafted, welded onto the ELC Giving Tree, and recognized by name on nearby signage. The ELC Giving Tree is a beautiful sculpture created in honor of the College’s 50th Anniversary.  It will be prominently rooted near the entrance of the Environmental Learning Center.
