College Now is a program that, through the coordination of Columbia Gorge Community College and local high schools, offers high school students the opportunity to earn transferable college credits while taking certain approved high school classes. By the time they graduate from high school, these students have a head start on their college education, and at a fraction of the cost of regular college tuition prices.
College Now is currently available to the students in Wasco and Hood River counties, and to students attending Columbia and Goldendale High Schools in Washington.
