Oregon Transfer Module (OTM)
The OTM is a set of 45 general education credits recognized by all Oregon community colleges and Oregon University System (OUS) schools, designed for students who wish to transfer. Completion of the OTM can help those students taking courses at multiple post-secondary institutions by ensuring transferability of coursework. This is not a degree or certificate but is documentation on a student's transcript that they have met a subset of common general education requirements. Note: The OTM is not intended to be a first year of the AAOT degree.

1 course in college-level mathematics. Course must have a prerequisite of MTH095 or higher.


*2 courses in writing



Oral Communication
1 course in the fundamentals of speech or communication


Each course must be at least 3 credits

3 courses
The second year of a foreign language may be included, but not the first




Social Science
3 courses




Computer Science

3 courses including at least 1 laboratory courses in biological and/or physical science




Cultural Literacy
1 course from any distribution area that is designated as cultural literacy

Complete electives to reach a total of 45 degree credits. Courses must be from the Introduction to Disciplines areas (Humanities (Arts and Letters), Social Science or Science/Math/Computer Science).

Complete a minimum of 45 credits. All courses must be completed with a grade of "C" or better. Students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 at the time the module is completed. Regionally accredited private colleges and universities within the state may offer and issue the Oregon Transfer Module, which will be accepted at any Oregon public college or university. Oregon Transfer Module credits may not match program requirements in the receiving school. The OTM supplements, but does not supplant existing articulation agreements and does not replace effective advising. Courses that are designed to prepare students for college-level work are not applicable to the transfer module. In Humanities (Arts and Letters), the second year of a foreign language may be included, but not the first year. American Sign Language (ASL) is considered a foreign language. When choosing courses in science and mathematics, students and advisers should check the specific requirements of receiving schools. Courses that include a laboratory component, or that deal with specific subjects, may be required for majors or degrees. Computer Science courses used in the Math/Science/Computer Science area must meet Oregon Council of Computer Chairs criteria for a science course.
