Today’s students move frequently between 2- and 4-year post-secondary institutions in pursuit of education, training and a degree. Some students transfer into 4-year universities before they complete an associate degree at a community college, with a percentage of this group gaining a bachelor’s degree eventually through a combination of credits from both institutions.

A partnership between Oregon’s public community colleges and universities offers students the option of obtaining a degree through "Reverse Transfer." This recognizes students’ achievements with an associate degree after they have transferred to a 4-year school and have accumulated the credits needed to fulfill the 2-year degree program requirements. It also recognizes the degree completion for the community college, which receives no "credit" for the degree through current data measures tracking completions.

Oregon Tech has joined a partnership with Klamath Community College (KCC), Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC), and Clackamas Community College (CCC).
