Associate of Science Oregon Transfer Degree

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. Grade point average requirements for entry into the university’s major are not necessarily satisfied by the ASOT – Business degree. 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.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Program learning outcomes for business programs are:

Business Ethics
Demonstrate knowledge of ethical, legal, and socially responsible business behavior, while maintaining high levels of personal and professional integrity in today's rapidly changing multi-cultural, team-oriented business environment. 

Business Communication
Develop and deliver professional oral and written communications (using technology) that are appropriate to the topic, audience, and situation.

Analytical Skills
Demonstrate critical thinking and problem-solving skills by identifying, understanding, and applying basic theories, terminology, and practices related to each functional area of business.

Employability Skills
Develop the interpersonal skills necessary to build and maintain effective working relationships with internal and external business stakeholders.

Technology
Use technology proficiently and professionally as both a tool to communicate with stakeholders and assist with business operations. 

Fundamentals of Business
Develop a solid understanding of fundamental business ideas, principles, concepts, and theories.  

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 and the Business Technology Department chair’s approval. In order to ensure coursework is current, program courses over 10 years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward course requirements.

Graduation Requirements

Students must complete a minimum of 90 term credits of lower division collegiate courses with a minimum grade of “C” or better.
