Computer Science First Term Advising Guide


Computer Science at Portland Community College

PCC does not offer an Associate of Science degree in Computer Science. PCC offers many of the lower-division coursework required for a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science at an Oregon University.

Please note: PCC's Computer Information Systems ("CIS") classes do NOT transfer towards the requirements of a computer science degree at any Oregon University.

Portland Community College has transfer guides with the Computer Science departments at the following Oregon Universities:

Oregon Technology

Students can NOT complete all of their lower division transfer classes at PCC for Oregon Tech's BS Degree in Software Engineering Technology. Students are encouraged to transfer to Oregon Tech for their Sophomore Year. Contact for more information.

Oregon State University

Students can NOT complete all of their lower division transfer classes at PCC for OSU's Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science. Students are encouraged to transfer to OSU during their Sophomore Year. Contact for more information.

Portland State University

Students can complete all of their lower division transfer classes at PCC for PSU's Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science. Contact for more information.

University of Oregon

Students can complete all of their lower division transfer classes at PCC for UO's Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Information Science. Please note that University of Oregon's "CIS" classes are equivalent to PCC's "CS" classes. Contact for more information.

Transfer students are responsible for contacting their transfer school for up-to-date information on the program they will be articulating into. You are strongly advised to work with an advisor at your transfer school while you complete your lower-division coursework at PCC.

What major should I declare for Computer Science?

Portland Community College does not offer an Associate's Degree in Computer Science. For that reason, you can not declare Computer Science as your major at PCC.

We recommend you declare the Associate of Science degree during your time at PCC.

New Students should refer to the First Term Advising Guide for Computer Science.
