Columbia Gorge Community College (CGCC) has been granted Candidate for Accreditation status by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). Candidacy is not accreditation nor does it ensure eventual accreditation. Candidate for Accreditation is a status of affiliation with the Commission which indicates that the institution has achieved initial recognition and is progressing toward accreditation.
CGCC, until separate accreditation, if granted, delivers college credit instruction, certificates and degrees through its contract with Portland Community College (PCC) which is accredited through the NWCCU. Credits, certificates and degrees earned at CGCC appear on PCC transcripts and are transferable to four-year institutions, subject to the specific policies of those institutions. CGCC contracts with PCC for many instructional and student records services.
