The State of Oregon, community colleges, and public universities work together to expand Common Course Numbering (CCN) across Oregon public institutions. CCN focuses on aligning the most transferred, lower-division coursework to help students receive credit when they transfer between public institutions in Oregon.
Courses approved for CCN are highly enrolled courses that have been aligned as directed by Senate Bill (SB) 233 (2021), with the same course title, subject code, credits, description, and course learning outcomes. On this page, educators and partners can find the current list of approved CCNs, as well information guiding the ongoing development of CCNs in Oregon.
The Transfer Council develops recommendations on a CCN system, which are then considered for approval by the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC). SB 233 requires the HECC to establish, by rule, a CCN system and system of transfer and articulation, based on recommendations from the Transfer Council. When CCNs are approved and implemented, all Oregon community colleges and public universities are required to accept a transfer of academic credit for each course as if the credit was earned at the accepting institution.
Students can find tips here for starting the transfer process, and introductions to the resources in the Oregon Transfer Compass (Core Transfer Maps, Major Transfer Maps, and other tools).
