Oregon Transfer Module

The Oregon Transfer Module (OTM) provides a one-year curriculum for students who plan to transfer to a State of Oregon community college or university. The module enables students to complete one year of general education foundation course work that is academically sound and will meet the admission standards of the receiving school. The Oregon Transfer Module is not a certificate or degree.

Students are encouraged to work closely with a Career Education Advisor to ensure selection of appropriate course work. Upon transfer, students may be required to complete additional course work in general education, or an academic major, that is specific to the receiving institution. Students who transfer prior to the completion of the Oregon Transfer Module will have their courses individually evaluated by the receiving institution.

Students must complete a minimum of 45 credits of lower division course work with a grade of "C" or better in order to complete the Oregon Transfer Module. Students only need to take one course at TBCC that applies to the OTM to have TBCC be the school which transcripts it.
