Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer Degree
Major Code: 300
About the Program
The Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree is a two-year program designed for students who intend to transfer to an Oregon university. Completion of the degree will satisfy lower division general education requirements and ensures junior standing at a university for registration purposes. Additionally, with careful planning, students may satisfy many of the lower division courses required in their academic majors.
Students should be aware, however, that if they transfer before completing this degree, their courses will be evaluated individually toward the general education requirements of the school of their choice. Students are encouraged to work closely with their academic advisors to maximize the benefits of this degree.
The Joint Boards Articulation Committee and the Oregon Joint Boards of Education have approved certain general education outcomes for courses selected to fulfill AAOT degree requirements. All courses listed meet those identified outcomes. For more information see the current catalog or visit the Program Learning Outcomes website.
Students are required to take the college placement test to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined by placement test scores. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.
Coursework from accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies. Discipline studies-approved coursework in humanities, social science, and science/math/ computer science transferred from another Oregon community college will be accepted if students have a declared AAOT major at RCC and received a “C” or better grade in the course(s). College Now credit will be accepted in accordance with current agreement.
Students must complete a minimum of 90 college-level credits with a minimum grade of “C” or better, including at least one course designated as meeting cultural literacy criteria.
