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.

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.

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.

Advanced Standing

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.

Graduation Requirements

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. Students must also have a 2.0 cumulative GPA at the time the AAOT is awarded.

The courses listed below are only meant to serve as a guide of recommended choices within categories required in the AAOT framework. See the AAOT program map for full degree requirements. It is strongly recommended that a student also consult with the transfer college of choice regarding specific prerequisites since requirements for a math major vary at each university.

This guide lays out an optimal path to graduate in two years as you prepare to transfer to a four-year Oregon college or university. Please meet with an advisor for any questions about alternate classes in any given term. When transferring to a public four-year Oregon university, one of the following options must be met as a requirement for admission:

  1. Two years of the same high school-level world language
  2. Two terms of college-level world language (may be first-year world language, which can be used as elective credits)

This is for students who have graduated from high school or completed a high school equivalency program in 1997 or after. Additionally, if students intend to complete a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree at a four-year school, they must complete two years of a college level world language regardless of when they graduated from high school or an equivalency program. Completing the first year of the college language sequence in terms 3-6 at RCC sets students up for the second-year sequence when they transfer. Students should inquire with their intended receiving institution for world language requirements.

This guide lays out an optimal path to graduate. Where zero credits are listed in the prerequisites, students may place into a higher level(s) based on designated placement. Note: some prerequisites may be required for graduation. Please consult with an advisor regularly as you complete your transfer degree.
