Private Postsecondary

​​ODA-Authorized Oregon Private Colleges and Universities 

 

The HECC Office of Degree Authorization (ODA) serves as the state regulator that approves degree-granting private institutions to operate in this state. Without approval or explicit exemption from regulation from the HECC, a school cannot legally operate in our state, or offer valid degrees or certificates to Oregonians.

​A partner to the Higher Education Coordinating Commission is the Oregon Alliance of Independent Colleges and Universities (The Alliance).  The Alliance is a nonprofit membership organization representing and serving seventeen regionally accredited, private, nonprofit, independent colleges and universities in Oregon.​​​
