There are many ways to transfer credit into Oregon State University. Please see some of the options below and feel free to email [email protected] or call 541-737-9472 if you have additional questions about any of these degree/coursework options. Students are NOT required to follow a program/degree option below and may simply opt to meet our transfer admissions requirements.
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.
Completion of an Associate of Science Oregon Transfer Degree- Business (ASOT- B) or the Associate of Science Oregon Transfer Degree- Computer Science (ASOT- CS) ensures completion of all lower division Baccalaureate Core (general education) requirements and junior standing for registration purposes. The ASOT- Business or ASOT- CS degree may include up to 12 approved professional-technical credits as electives.
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.
Students may also pursue Associate of Applied Science (AAS) or Associate of General Studies (AGS) degree. While credits used to complete these degrees are eligible to transfer into OSU and fulfill Bachelor degree requirements, these Associates Degrees do not provide the same guarantees as the Oregon Transfer Degrees (AAOT, ASOT-B/CS, MTM).
The Core Transfer Maps guide students in course selection and support pursuit of a future degree in a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) or non-STEM (general) field. While the Core Transfer Maps are great starting points for students selecting courses, they are NOT complete first-year course plans and do not complete all lower division general education requirements.
A Major Transfer Map is a course plan for a major that, when completed, will allow students to transfer credits from any Oregon community college to any Oregon public university, and count all of the credits identified on the MTM toward a bachelor’s degree in that specific major.
Not all MTMs are available at all Oregon Community Colleges. If interested, please check with your community college about the availability of the Major Transfer Maps at your college.
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.
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.
The Degree Partnership Program (DPP) allows undergraduate students pursuing a bachelor's degree to be dually enrolled at both Oregon State University and any of our community college partner schools. This is a great way to complete your OSU degree quickly and affordably.
Visit the Degree Partnership Program page to learn more about the benefits of the program and requirements to apply.
With DPP, you can pursue whatever pathway works best for your situation.
There are many benefits of using DPP to transfer into OSU!
International transfer students wanting to enter OSU from either another US institution or an institution outside of the US are encouraged to review the international admissions requirements and contact the international admissions office.
Remember, a completed application includes all official transcripts from any college/university in which you have attempted credit.
