Oregon Registry Steps Requirements

In 2015, requirements for achieving Oregon Registry Steps on the Degree, Credential, Certificate (DCC) Pathway and College Course Credit (CCC) Pathway changed.  When you apply using either of these pathways, you may need credits in Human Growth & Development (HGD), Learning Environments & Curriculum (LEC), and Understanding & Guiding Behavior (UGB).

We phased in these changes over the course of 2015 and 2016 because we understand college credits in UGB are less common than in HGD and LEC.  After evaluating the impact of these changes and with input from the Oregon Professional Development Committee,  we have adopted the standard beginning January 1, 2017, any combination of HGD and UGB (Steps 7.5-8, CCC) or HGD, LEC, and UGB (Steps 8.5 and up) will be accepted.

To learn more about the Oregon Registry Steps, see the updated and redesigned Oregon Registry Steps document. This document permanently replaces the 2015 Oregon Registry Steps document.
