Co-Admitted Online Degree for Community College Students

The Start-To-Finish® series allows you to complete two high-quality business degrees 100% online: first an Associate of Science at a community college, and then a Bachelor in Business with concentrations in either Business Technology & Analytics, Management & Leadership, Supply & Logistics Management, and/or Human Resource Management at PSU.

What Co-Admission Means

Co-Admission (also known as “dual enrollment” or “degree partnership”) means that you are formally admitted to both PSU and one of our partner community colleges. For the Start-To-Finish Program, our partner community colleges are Mt. Hood Community College or Portland Community College.

Your Advantages as a Co-Admitted Student

When you are co-admitted, you can take online courses at both schools. It also gives you access to resources on both sides. As soon as you are co-admitted, you can begin to develop a relationship with your PSU Career & Academic Advisor, who will help you with transfer and career planning. Additionally, you will be able to take advantage of PSU services and financial aid early on, which supports your transition from community college to PSU.

Here is the full list of Co-Admission Benefits.
