Transfer Degrees

The Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer Degree

Completion of an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree (AAOT) ensures completion of all lower division Baccalaureate Core (general education) requirements and junior standing for registration. It may be more efficient to use the OSU Baccalaureate Core list than completing the full AAOT.

The Associate of Science Transfer Degree

The Associate of Science (AS) degree is designed for students planning to transfer credits to a baccalaureate degree program at a four-year institution. It allows more freedom in course selection than the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) degree, but does not guarantee that students will be accepted as having completed all lower division Baccalaureate Core (general education) requirements or junior standing for registration purposes.

A Linn-Benton Community College Associate of Science degree awarded after March 2001 ensures completion of all lower division Baccalaureate Core (general education) requirements at OSU.

Associate of Science Oregon Transfer - Business

Completion of an Associate of Science Oregon Transfer Degree- Business (ASOT- Business) ensures completion of all lower division Baccalaureate Core (general education) requirements and junior standing for registration purposes. The ASOT-Business degree may include up to 12 approved professional-technical credits as electives.

Completion of the ASOT-Business degree does not guarantee admission to OSU's Business pro-school. It is strongly recommended that students contact OSU College of Business early in the first term of their ASOT-Business program to be advised of additional requirements as they are subject to change without notice.

Washington Transfer Students

The Direct Transfer Associate (DTA) degree awarded by a regionally accredited community college in the state of Washington will satisfy lower division Baccalaureate Core (general education) requirements and junior standing for registration purposes. OSU will accept a maximum of 12 credits in professional, vocational, and technical courses.

California Transfer Students

OSU accepts the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) to satisfy lower division Baccalaureate Core (general education) requirements and junior standing for registration purposes. Students interested in the IGETC path to transfer are strongly advised to see an academic advisor prior to enrollment.
