About the Program
The statewide Associate of Science Oregon Transfer degree in Business is designed for students transferring to baccalaureate degree programs as business majors. Those completing the ASOT-Business degree are assured junior level standing for registration purposes and will have met the lower division general education requirements of any Oregon public university.

Students should be aware that if they transfer before completing this degree, courses will be evaluated individually toward the general education requirements of the college of their choice. This program can be completed entirely through online delivery.

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:
- Two years of the same high school-level world language, or
- 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.
