Oregon Transfer Module

2020-21 Oregon Transfer Module (PDF)*

Courses for this Program

About the Module

The Oregon Transfer Module provides a one-year curriculum for students who want to transfer to another Oregon community college or public university prior to completing a two-year degree. The module allows students to complete one year of general education courses that will be applied to the general education and academic major requirements of the transfer school. By fulfilling these requirements and meeting the admission standards of the transfer institution, students will qualify for sophomore standing.

Students choosing this transfer option are advised to work closely with faculty advisors to ensure selection of appropriate courses. Upon transfer, students may be required to complete additional general education and academic major requirements specific to the transfer institution. Students should be aware that if they transfer prior to completing this module, courses will be evaluated individually toward the general education requirements of the school of their choice.

The courses listed in this module may also be applied to the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree (AAOT), the Associate of Science Oregon Transfer – Business degree (AS/OT–BUS), and the Associate of Science Oregon Transfer – Computer Science degree (AS/OT–CS), thus providing additional options for students who may start on this track and decide to complete a two-year degree. When enrolling, students should identify either the AAOT, AS/OT–BUS or AS/OT–CS major.

Program Learning Outcomes

The Higher Education Coordinating Commission has approved certain general education outcomes for courses selected to fulfill AAOT degree requirements. All courses listed meet those identified outcomes. For more information see this catalog or visit

Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process 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 through the Placement Process. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies.

Completion Requirements

Students must complete all required courses with a grade of “C” or better to complete the Oregon Transfer Module. Certain required courses may be graded on a pass/no pass basis only. A grade of “P” for these courses indicates a student earned the equivalent of a “C” or better grade. It is important to note that this module is neither a certificate nor a degree. Upon successful completion of coursework, students will have the Oregon Transfer Module noted on their RCC academic transcripts. In order for the Oregon Transfer Module designation to be posted, students must complete an application for graduation prior to completing the module. Applications are available at Rogue Central.
