Career Connected Learning

Career Connected Learning is a CTE Dual Credit partnership between college and high school instructors designed to guide local students into high-skill, high-wage careers with local industries.

High school students can earn dual credit at both their high school, and at Lower Columbia College, without leaving high school or doing additional homework!

Dual credit applies to career and technical education (CTE) courses, which then transfer to college programs. Once you finish high school you can apply your credits to one of Lower Columbia College's professional-technical programs.

Credits earned at Lower Columbia College will transfer to any Washington State two-year institution or college, and some four-year colleges.
