The Office of Degree Authorization works to assist Oregon students in attaining a postsecondary education and to enhance the value, integrity and diversity of college programs offered in Oregon. The office works to ensure the quality of degrees and certificates offered by private degree-granting colleges in Oregon and out-of-state public and private degree-granting colleges; evaluates requests to start new degree programs in Oregon or offer academic programs for college credit to Oregon citizens from outside the state; protects existing degree programs offered by private colleges from detrimental duplication by publicly-funded institutions; and protects Oregonians from fraudulent use of substandard academic credentials and fraudulent degrees.
