Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT)

The Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer Degree (AAOT) is designed for students who want to earn a two-year degree in order to transfer to a four-year college or university. The first two years of college work are accomplished at the community college level, transfer as a block, and are accepted as meeting the freshman and sophomore requirements at all public Oregon universities. This degree enables the student to meet all lower division general education requirements and attain junior standing for registration purposes. It does not guarantee that the student will gain entrance with junior standing into the student's desired major area. Class standing, GPA requirements, or required courses for specific majors are not necessarily satisfied by the AAOT degree. If a student transfers before completing the AAOT degree, coursework will be evaluated by the four-year school on a course-by-course basis.

This degree has also been approved for transfer by the Idaho Board of Education to all public Idaho college and universities. This degree is also excellent preparation for transfer to many private and out-of-state colleges and universities.

Students are advised to plan well in advance of transfer for specific pre-requisite and pre-major course requirements. Students should develop an educational plan, working closely with their TVCC advisor as well as an advisor at the four-year college or university selected for transfer.
