Columbia College will be providing an Associate's to Bachelor's Degree Program at Tri-County Technical College that will enable Tri-County graduates to complete their bachelor's degree through Columbia College in the evenings on Tri-County's campus at a significantly discounted tuition rate. Applications will be accepted shortly for the program that will begin its initial cohort in January 2016.

Individuals accepted into the program would pay just over half the cost of tuition paid by traditional day students attending part time at the campus in Columbia. Tri-County graduates would pay $395 per credit hour instead of Columbia's $725 per credit hour.  

The program provides bachelor's degrees in Health Communication and Leadership & Professional Communication. The Health Communication program aligns most closely with Tri-County health-related associate's degrees such as Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Veterinary, Veterinary Technology, and Associate Degree Nursing. The Leadership & Professional Communication aligns with most of our associate degree programs. Additional bachelor's degree programs may be added at a later date.

Financial aid and tuition will be handled through Columbia College, who will have a faculty member and program coordinator on the Pendleton Campus on evenings that classes will be held (Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-9 p.m.).
