Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (A.A.O.T.) Degree

The associate of arts Oregon transfer (A.A.O.T.) degree is a two-year program. Students enrolled in this program must successfully complete a minimum of 90 credit hours. The A.A.O.T. degree will transfer to any Oregon University System (OUS) institution where students may complete requirements for a four-year baccalaureate degree.

The A.A.O.T. is a non-designated degree. Students planning on transferring to a four-year institution may want to choose a focus of study with the A.A.O.T. in order to meet the lower division requirements of their chosen major at the four-year institution. In that case, students should consult with their advisors to determine the additional classes recommended by that department as part or all of the 23 credits of electives indicated below. Foundational Requirements are designed to meet the core competencies outlined by the Statement of Student Outcomes.

The following A.A.O.T. requirements are based on information available as this catalog goes to press and are subject to change. Before enrolling, students should review a current catalog or meet with an advisor of the college to which they plan to transfer to ensure course and program compatibility.
