Be sure to regularly check your communications from your target schools, as there will likely be changes to how services are offered and may be changes to deadlines. Changes will be specific to each school, though schools across the board are urging prospective and admitted students to connect with them directly.  

Several universities are extending their deadlines to declare Intent to Register/Enroll.  
An extended deadline would allow you more time to accept your admission during this period of uncertainty. Check with your target school(s) to see if this deadline is extended for you.


A simple graduation petition is required for any student who intends to complete a degree or certificate from College of the Redwoods. The petition can be accessed on the CR Admissions webpage under "find forms". This petition must be submitted to the counseling and advising services nearest you in your final semester by the following deadlines:

  • Fall Semester - Last Thursday of October
  • Spring Semester - Last Thursday of March
  • Summer Session - Last Thursday of June


Stop by your nearest counseling and advising services and ask to make an appointment to create a student education plan before the mid semester registration rush hits- we'll help you plan out the courses you need to transfer from A to Z while getting a degree!


As you consider your transfer choices, don't exclude Oregon just because you are not a resident there. There are public institutions in Oregon that offer you, as a California resident, an opportunity to attend without paying non-resident tuition. Through the Oregon Exchange Agreement, eligible CR students may transfer to Southern Oregon University in Ashland or Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls and not pay out-of-state tuition. While on this exchange, however, you are precluded from establishing Oregon residency. This preserves your California residency status should you decide to return for additional study in California. This exchange results in substantial tuition cost savings while providing additional transfer options. For additional information about the Oregon Exchange Agreement, contact the CR Admissions Office (476-4200).
