High School Transition Program

This fall at Oregon Tech high school students have the opportunity to explore their interests in STEM fields with remote classes from the Portland Metro campus in Wilsonville. Please note that classes will be fully remote due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Contact us to schedule an advising appointment via Zoom and to register for classes.

Registration is open now and classes begin on September 12, so act fast to make sure there are still seats remaining in the classes that interest you. Don't see a class that you want to take? Explore the full list of classes by using the course search tool. Remember that we can only extend the HST tuition discount to classes that are not highlighted as online.


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.
