Transfer Education

The Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) and Associate of Science (AS) degrees are designed to meet the first two years of academic work at a college or university. The AAOT degree meets all of the lower division (freshman and sophomore) general education requirements at all of the Oregon University System (OUS) schools, and many other colleges and universities. Associate of Science (AS) degrees are specific to receiving institutions and meet the receiving institution requirements as described by articulation agreements. The Oregon Transfer Module (OTM) is a subset of the AAOT and is designed to partially meet the General Education assignment of the OUS schools, totaling a minimum of 45 credits.

Career Technical

The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree and one-year certificate programs prepare students for entry into the work force in specific areas. There are also short-term pathway certificates available in many CTE programs. Because of its emphasis on application, this educational offering is meant to help individuals to become qualified for employment.
