Starting Fall 2018, the Geology of Central Oregon program offered quarterly workshops in partnership with the UO Department of Earth Sciences. The workshops coupled educational lectures with field trips to local areas of interest, including Crooked River Caldera and Mt. Bachelor. Volcanologist Dr. Daniele McKay led the fledgling program, which was halfway through its second academic year when the workshops ended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. McKay is active in other organizations, namely the Central Oregon Geoscience Society (COGS), which offers free presentations open to the public. COGS presentations are held the fourth Tuesday of the month from September to November and January to May.

As of February 2017, the University of Oregon Courses for High School Students (UOCHSS) Program is no longer available.
Students who took courses in the UOCHSS Program received UO college credit. If the students go on to attend the University of Oregon, this coursework will not count toward University of Oregon's group requirements or required courses for a major. For example, if the student took EC 199 through UOCHSS, the credit will not count towards Social Studies group requirements. Additionally, if the student plans to major in Economics at the University of Oregon, then EC 199 cannot be substituted for EC 202: Microeconomics. UOCHSS credits can be used toward elective credits at the UO.
These four-week college-level courses are for people eager to engage in college level study for the sake of personal fulfillment. Seminars are noncredit and ungraded. However, there is a good deal of challenging homework, which typically includes reading of both primary and secondary materials. While seminars are led by faculty who provide formal study guides and lead college-level discussions, participants are expected to be prepared to actively contribute to each session.
Participation in Saturday Seminars is open to general community members (OLLI membership is not required.) However, active OLLI members may register at a reduced seminar fee.
The UO Professional Development for Educators (PDE) program that was administered by UO Continuing and Professional Education stopped administering credits in Spring 2019. Directions on how to request a transcript of any credit classes taken can be found on the Office of the Registrar's website.
