  • Eastern Oregon University Logo

    Eastern Oregon University (EOU) at Mt. Hood Community College Campus and Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) are committed to serving a unique personal educational service for students wanting to earn a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education (Undergraduate Elementary Education Program).

    By transferring lower-division coursework (freshman and sophomore) from MHCC to EOU and becoming a co-admission student, this program provides the following advantages:

    1. All classes will be offered on the Mt. Hood Community College campus;
    2. Students may transfer as many as 120 credits (quarters/terms);
    3. Both programs compliment work schedules and family commitments;
    4. Personal advising by department faculty/advisors;
    5. Students may attend EOU and MHCC simultaneously;
    6. Least costly route to a baccalaureate degree, and/or a teaching license;
    7. Coordinated financial aid and scholarship opportunities;
    8. Expanded educational options by combining academic resources of two institutions;
    9. Combined library and technology privileges at both institutions.

    Success Begins at MHCC

    Commencing your baccalaureate goals with MHCC, a solid academic foundation will be provided. With small class sizes, personal advising and instructing attention, class variety and lower tuition, MHCC will provide an excellent starting place.

    Complete a Baccalaureate at EOU at MHCC

    EOU is accredited by Northwest Accreditation and recognized as one of seven Oregon University System institutions. Moreover, it is a national model for creating regional residential programs. The EOU site at MHCC is the university’s largest off-campus education program.

    Transfer Process

    Gaining admission to EOU is an easy process. For example, while continuing to complete a two-year transfer degree such as an AAOT, the co-admit process may be undertaken. Once being admitted to EOU, coursework may continue to be taken at MHCC to reach, but not exceed, 120 credits.

    Meanwhile, the transfer process will include a transition from MHCC to EOU without loss of credits or time. The steps in this transfer process include contacting the EOU on-campus office. The Elementary Education programs are located in AC3308A. You can also call 503-491-7000 to schedule an advising appointment or for additional questions. Please read the following additional steps.

    1. For the appointment, bring all other college and/or university UNOFFICIAL transcripts. These materials will be an important basis for an initial review;
    2. Following the review, the online application process will be provided;
    3. Complete the online application process first and then request OFFICIAL transcripts from other institutions to be sent directly to EOU (an advisor will provide actual materials for this activity);
    4. Once all materials have been submitted, the EOU Registrar will review them for OFFICIAL admission;
    5. Once admitted, students must attend at least one EOU course per year to remain an active student.
