• "This is the saddest day in the 50 year history of UCC. Our hearts go out to every student, every employee, and every family touched by this tragedy.

    "I want to thank all of our friends and neighbors who have dropped everything to help us. Over the next weeks, we will come together to accept offers of help and care so that we can assist one another."

    -Dr. Rita Cavin
    UCC Interim President

    The Umpqua Community College Foundation is accepting donations online and by mail: https://www.umpqua.edu/scholarships-donations

    We strongly recommend that donors cast a careful eye when considering other funds, as some are not based at charitable organizations and might apply high administrative fees. Also, unfortunately, at times like these, there are unscrupulous people who will set up false accounts.

Dual Credit - HS Teacher Resources

Interested in teaching dual credit courses at your high school for UCC?

Dual credit courses are transferable to Oregon's public colleges and universities and requirements for teaching them are the same for dual credit high school teachers as they are for faculty. There are subtle differences by department, but in general, the gold standard for Arts and Letters courses is a Master's in the subject area. A Master's in a different subject area plus 12-18 graduate credits within the subject area may also be considered. For Career and Technical Education, work experience and various licensures are considered. 

If you are interested in teaching dual credit, please send your transcripts to Corrie Sommerfeld for an initial look. If you have experience (such as being a native speaker of a language other than English) that qualifies you for the position, but doesn't show up on your transcripts, please include this in your e-mail. After initial approval, you will be asked to complete the instructor application and articulation process and, finally, meet with the Department Chair of your subject area to discuss and collaborate on the content and instruction of the course.
