Associate of Science Transfer (AST) – Biology

About the Program

Major Transfer Maps (MTMs) represent a streamlined path for students transferring from an Oregon community college to an Oregon university who know which major/bachelor’s degree program they want to pursue. In contrast to other statewide transfer tools that prioritize university general education requirements (i.e. AAOT and ASOT), MTMs specify clear course-taking paths necessary for on-track progress towards a specific major/bachelor’s degree, with a guarantee of transfer from any Oregon community college to any Oregon public university. MTMs build on the 30-credit general education foundation defined by the generic Core Transfer Map (CTM), although MTMs may specify particular relevant/required General Education courses as part of the 30-credit CTM component of the MTM. The statewide Biology Major Transfer Map (MTM) will use the format of an Associate of Science Transfer degree.

Physics/Math/Chemistry

PICK TWO SEQUENCES
Strongly recommend seeing an advisor for assistance with choosing sequences which best match your specific academic, pre-professional, and career goals

  • 3-course General Physics (algebra or calculus)
  • MTH 251 (Differential Calculus) and 252 (Integral Calculus) 1,2
  • 3-course Organic Chemistry sequence 3,4

1 Students transferring to PSU may substitute STAT 243 & 244 for MTH 251 and 252.
2 Students transferring to EOU are required to take MTH 241 (Survey of Calculus) instead of MTH 251 and 252. MTH 251 may serve as a substitute for MTH 241.
3 Students transferring to OSU are strongly recommended to take the Organic Chemistry sequence.
4 Students considering pre-medical, pre-dental, and pre-pharmacy programs should consider Organic Chemistry sequence. Courses in sequence must be taken at the same institution.
