High School Transition Program

This winter, Oregon Tech is inviting high school students to join us in getting a head start on their college careers. Contact us to schedule an advising appointment via Zoom and to register for classes.

Registration opens on November 19th so make sure that you reach out soon to ensure that there are still seats remaining in the classes that interest you. Don't see a class that you want to take?

Students wishing to enroll in HST courses must:

  1. Be classified as a high school student.
  2. Be at least 14 years of age.
  3. Enroll in 100 or 200* level on campus courses (online coursework is not encouraged).
  4. Meet the prerequisite requirements for desired courses. Prerequisites can be met through coursework or Placement Testing.
  5. Pass the placement test to register for courses in math or writing.

* 200 level WRI courses require Communication Department approval prior to registration.



High School Transition students can take up to eight credits per term at a reduced tuition rate of $25 per credit. Students who are eligible for free/reduced lunches at their high school are eligible to receive a tuition waiver. Eligible students must complete a Grant Waiver request. Please keep in mind, due to the reduced tuition there are no refunds for HST courses. Online classes incur a full tuition fee as we are unable to extend the HST tuition discount to them.
