Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) – Elementary Education

Major Transfer Map

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 Elementary Education Major Transfer Map (MTM) will use the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree (AAOT-ELEM ED).
