Associate of Science Oregon Transfer Degree in Business (ASOT-BUS)

The ASOT-BUS degree is for students who are interested in transferring to a four-year degree program at an Oregon public university to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Business.

If you graduate with the ASOT-BUS degree, you will have completed the first step toward your bachelor’s degree program. You will transfer and register as a junior.

Visit with a TBCC career education advisor and talk to an advisor at the university where you plan to transfer.

Since universities have specific requirements for admission to their business programs, talking with a university advisor is very important. You should contact the university business program you want to attend
early in your first term here at TBCC.

Admission to the business school at a university is not guaranteed upon completion of the ASOT-BUS degree at TBCC.
