Dual Admission Agreements

Lewis & Clark has developed several dual admissions agreements to give L&C students the opportunity to be admitted to baccalaureate-degree granting colleges and universities while enrolled full-time at L&C. The goal of these agreements is to create a seamless and successful transition from L&C to another institution. Participants have access to both L&C and partnering institutions’ advising and financial aid services, and both L&C and the partnering institutions’ courses. While studying primarily at L&C, dual admission students may enroll in one course per semester at the partner institution.
