Oregon Colleges


There are over 100 college and university campuses, branch campuses and education centers across Oregon.

Listed below are Oregon’s accredited public and independent, not-for-profit colleges and universities. Although accreditation is not required by law, regional (not national) accreditation is considered the gold standard with a greater likelihood that credits will transfer between institutions. In Oregon, regional accreditation is done by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
