AA / OT
Associate of Arts
The AA/OT degree is designed for students planning to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program in the Oregon University System or as a “block transfer,” enabling a student to enter as a junior with all of the transfer school’s lower division general education requirements met. The AA/OT offers students the flexibility to choose courses that interest them while fulfilling requirements at their transfer schools.
This flexible degree option enables a student to complete an associate’s 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 an adviser.
