“Taking advantage of College Now is one of the smartest decisions I made. It allowed me to enter my four-year degree with so much more flexibility in my course load that other students don’t normally have. It also allowed me to dive straight into degree specific courses, which has really helped me in the STEM field.”

— Nathan Midyette

“The Expanded Options Program offered through Southwestern Oregon Community College has been a life-changer for our children. They have received the skills they needed to catapult themselves to the university level. I recommend this program to everyone I talk to!”

— Geraldine Mathias

“The College Now program greatly expanded the curriculum I had access to during my high-school education and prepared me for college classes. It also allowed me to finish my bachelor’s degree in three years and to do so while accruing only half of the debt that accompanies the average bachelor’s degree. Cayce attended Marshfield and graduated from Portland State University in 2020.”

— Cayce Hill

“Through College Now, I was able to take calculus at the high school which made it so I did not have to take it in college. This met my math requirement and opened up room in my schedule for courses on topics I was more passionate about. Emily graduated from Lawrence University, WIS in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts/Biology.”

— Emily Midyette
