All Career Pathways courses earned through Lower Columbia College will transfer to any Washington State two-year institution or college, and some four-year colleges.

Career Pathways is a partnership between college and high school instructors designed to guide local students into high-skill, high-wage careers with local industries.

Reasons to participate in Career Pathways

  • Save time and money
  • Earn college credit while in high school
  • Get hands-on experience
  • Get a solid foundation in a marketable career
  • Choose a career pathway while still in high school

If you are a high school student, you can earn college credit for classes taken in high school, without having to leave high school or do additional homework!

High school students are awarded dual credit for career and technical education (CTE) courses which transfer to college programs.

Once you finish high school, you can apply your earned Career Pathways credits to one of Lower Columbia College's professional-technical programs.
