The Clackamas Community College Difference
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, nearly $1,000,000 in 2022-23, to reduce the financial burdens for our college students. We also provide emergency grants to students to help with basic needs like childcare, transportation, medical care, and rent assistance. These often are the difference between a student continuing their education and having to drop out.
over 50 years, Clackamas Community College has made education possible
by providing innovative programs, scholarships, and basic needs support
for 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. With the help of our generous donors and community partners,
we lift students beyond their financial barriers so they can achieve
Introducing the Cougar Community Campaign: Join us in elevating the exciting work of students and staff at CCC by making a gift in support of the transformative power of education.
