Core Transfer Maps are broad descriptions of course requirements for students at any Oregon community college or public university. Students who have not yet declared a major and plan to transfer may take classes that fit these categories at any Oregon community college and expect all classes to transfer and meet at least 30 credits of general education requirements for a bachelor’s degree at any Oregon public university. Note that many majors have specific course requirements for categories within the Core Transfer Maps. The Core Transfer Maps are intended as starting points for students who plan to transfer to a university but are unsure of their intended major or transfer destination. Students who are certain of their major, but not their transfer destination, should determine if there is a developed Major Transfer Map for their chosen discipline, and follow that as a guide. Students who are certain of both their major and their intended transfer destination should consult an advisor for information on an existing specific articulation agreement, Major Transfer Map, or degree map that will prescribe their course requirements.

The Oregon Transfer Module (OTM) is an approved 45-unit subset of general education courses (foundational skills and introduction to discipline courses) that are common among Oregon’s colleges and universities. Courses are selected from an approved list of 100- and 200 level general education requirements as determined by each Oregon community college, public university, or participating Oregon independent college or university. It is designed to improve student access to a college degree by enhancing opportunities for the transfer of credits earned at one institution to another. Any student holding an Oregon Transfer Module that conforms to the guidelines will have met the requirements for the Transfer Module at any Oregon community college or public university. Upon transfer, the receiving institution may specify additional course work that is required for a major or for degree requirements or to make up the difference between the Transfer Module and the institution’s total General Education requirements.

An Associate of Arts-Oregon Transfer (AAOT) degree that conforms to the established guidelines will transfer as a block to any institution in the Oregon University System and will meet the lower division general education requirements for that institution’s baccalaureate degree programs. Students transferring under this agreement will have junior standing for registration purposes, however course, class standing, or GPA requirements for specific majors, department, or schools may not necessarily be satisfied by an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree. Upon transfer, the receiving institution may specify additional course work that is required for a particular major or degree. Students are strongly encouraged to consult their UCC academic and/or faculty advisor and the intended transfer institution to determine appropriate course choices.

The Associate of Science (AS) degree is designed for students planning to transfer credits to a baccalaureate degree program. The degree requirements allow students more flexibility in course selection, allowing them to focus on their major requirements. Unless directly articulated with another college/university the degree does not guarantee that students will be accepted as having completed all lower division comprehensive and General Education requirements for a baccalaureate degree (i.e., this is not a block transfer degree as is the AA/OT). There are no majors within this degree.

Students are strongly encouraged to consult their UCC academic and/or faculty advisor, the specific transfer curriculum pages in this catalog, and the intended transfer institution to determine appropriate course choices.

This flexible degree option enables a student to complete an Associate degree that is tailored to the general education requirements of the transfer school. Students must exercise caution in using the AGS option, as the degree does not guarantee transferability of courses completed. Educational planning for the AGS should be done with the help of a UCC advisor.
