Columbia Gorge Community College

Columbia Gorge Community College (CGCC) offers a flexible schedule of credit and non-credit classes on campus, online, and in the community.

The college began in 1977 when its roots were established as Wasco Area Education Service District, and shortly thereafter was named Treaty Oak Education Service District. The college operated in leased facilities in downtown The Dalles for 16 years.

In 1989 a vote of the people changed the college's designation from service district to community college, and later the name was changed to Columbia Gorge Community College. In 1993 a bond election allowed the purchase and remodeling of the current campus facility overlooking the beautiful Columbia River Gorge.

In 2001 the citizens of Hood River County and Wasco County voted to annex Hood River County into the college's district, allowing the college the opportunity to increase its presence in the Hood River area.

Columbia Gorge Community College serves students from all over the Mid-Columbia region, in both Oregon and Washington.
