About BEC

Baker Early College

Our high school students attend local community college campuses full time and earn college credits that can be applied toward their high school graduation requirements. We offer support, guidance services, tuition, books and dual enrollment to high school students in the state of Oregon.


Baker Early College pays college tuition and fees for 12 credits per term. Students must enroll in at least 11 credits and may choose to take more credits beyond the 12 that are covered by BEC. We also provide $200 toward the purchase of your textbooks each term (additional assistance for books based on family income).


Students should have sufficient credits from accredited institutions to be on track to graduate with their class OR be able to demonstrate readiness to be successful at the college level. Students enrolling in Baker Early College should have the following suggested credit counts:
