Degrees and Certificates

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 allows 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 OTM is not a certificate or degree.

Students should work closely with an academic 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 receive credit for the Oregon credits. Students only need to take one course at PCC that applies to the OTM to have PCC be the school which transcripts it. OTM worksheet is provided in the Appendix section.
