Guided Pathways

Associate of Arts/ Oregon Transfer Degree (AAOT)

Arts, Humanities, Communication Pathway

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 advisers 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 or visit www.roguecc.edu/general-ed-outcomes.

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. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

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.
