  • MTH 211-213 are only offered once a year - starting in the fall. Work with an academic advisor to make sure you are ready to start the series in the fall. 
  • Students must complete all required courses to earn this degree. Equivalent courses of 3 credits or higher may be transferred in and used to meet core or major requirements. To earn a Core Transfer Map (CTM) transcript notation, students must complete required courses and have a minimum of 30 CTM credits. 
  • College-level courses are numbered 100 or higher. Courses numbered 001-099 identify developmental courses (e.g. RD 090), with the exception of ENG 110, 116, 117; MTH 100, RD 115, WR 110, 120, and WR 115  (taken before summer 1999), which are also considered developmental.
  • Foundational Skills are open to demonstration of proficiency. For information on waiver testing or credit for prior learning, contact an academic advisor. Waiver testing is not the same as placement testing.
  • 200-level second language courses count toward the Arts and Letters requirement. American Sign Language (ASL) is considered a second language.
  • University second language admission requirements for transfer students graduating high school 1997 or later include one of the following:
    • Two terms of the same college-level second language with an average grade of C- or above
    • Two years of the same high school-level second language with an average grade of C- or above

  • Repeatable courses may be used once to meet a Discipline Studies requirement. Any additional allowable repeats may be used to meet Elective requirements.
  • Some courses are included on more than one Discipline Studies list. These courses may be used only once to meet a specific Discipline Studies requirement. Please contact your academic advisor for details.
  • Lower-division college-level courses taken at Lane will not always meet the same requirements an upper-division college-level course with similar content does at a four-year transfer institution. In such cases, the course(s) in question will generally transfer as an elective. Please contact specific four-year schools for details.

  • Although the AAOT degree provides an excellent framework for many students pursuing a baccalaureate degree, it is not ideal for all students. Students should consult with an academic advisor.
  • HE 252  can be used in the Health/Wellness/Fitness category if taken in Summer 1997 or after.  Prior to this, HE 252 would be considered an elective.
