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
Admission to the business school at a university is not guaranteed upon completion of the ASOT-BUS degree at TBCC.
TBCC courses approved to be repeated for credit can only be used once to count toward the degree. However, you can repeat Cooperative Education for a maximum of 12 credits.
If a general education course is split into multiple courses, i.e., a 101 course becomes 101A, 101B, and 101C, only one can be used to meet the General Education requirement.
Max 12 credits of Cooperative Education can count toward the degree.
Max nine credits of 199 or 299, experimental courses, count toward degree.
Max 24 credits of “P” (Pass) grades count toward degree.
