Associate of Arts - Oregon Transfer (AAOT)
The Associate of Arts - Oregon Transfer Degree (AAOT) is a program of study that
community college students can follow to fulfill all their lower division
general education requirements for a Bachelors degree at an Oregon University
System institution. It is an agreement between the Oregon State System of Higher
Education and Oregon's community colleges to provide transfer of community
college coursework to an Oregon university system institution. Completion of the
AAOT Degree can lead to junior standing, for registration purposes, for any
student admitted to a university in the Oregon university system.
Associate of Science (AS)
The Associate of Science degree is designed for students who plan to transfer and
complete a Bachelors of Science degree at a four-year institution. The degree
requirements allow students more flexibility in course selection allowing them
to focus on their discipline requirements. Note: Completion of this degree does
not guarantee that all lower-division General Education requirements have been
met for a Bachelors degree (i.e. , this is not a block transfer degree as is the
AAOT). In selecting courses for this degree, students are highly encouraged to
review the specific transfer curriculum pages in the MHCC college catalog,
consult with a faculty advisor and check with the institution to which they
intend to transfer to determine appropriate course selection.
Associate of Science - Oregon Transfer Degree in Business (ASOT)
Any student, who holds an Associate of Science/Oregon Transfer in Business degree
that conforms to the degree guidelines and who transfers to any institution in
the Oregon University system, will have met the lower-division general education
requirements of that institution's baccalaureate degree programs. Students
transferring with this degree will have junior standing for registration
purposes. Admission to the business school/program of any Oregon university
system (OUS) institution is not guaranteed upon completion of the Associate of
Science/Oregon Transfer in Business degree. It is strongly recommended that
students contact the specific OUS campus' business school/program early in the
first year at MHCC to be advised about additional requirements and procedures
for admission consideration to the OUS institution and the business
Associate of Science - Oregon Transfer Degree in Computer Science (ASOT)
This degree will allow students to transfer with junior standing for registration purposes, meet
lower division general education requirements and complete some or all lower division major requirements
for a selected four-year degree at all Oregon University System schools. It is designed for
students intending to major in computer science. The ASOT-Computer Science does not guarantee
admission into a student’s four-year program. Four-year institution class standing and GPA
requirements also are not satisfied by an ASOT degree.
Associate of Applied Science (AAS)
The Associate of Applied Science degree is for students who have been accepted to
a professional-technical program. Please see the college catalog for a list of
the professional-technical programs offered at MHCC.
Associate of General Studies (AGS)
The purpose of the degree in general studies is to provide the student an
opportunity to pursue a broad general education at a community college. It is
intended as a flexible program for the student who is not pursuing a specified
curriculum in the lower division transfer or professional-technical area.
Because of the flexibility and broad approach of this degree, a student may find
that it may not fulfill all of the requirements of full junior standing when
transferred to a four-year institution.
