Oregon Transfer Module

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (A-Z)

The OTM is a state-approved Transcription Notation, not a degree or certificate

For students intending to transfer within a year to a public university in Oregon, this transcript notation ensures the 45 credits of specific general education requirements and electives will be accepted at any state institution, and ensures sophomore status for registration purposes. Upon transfer, the receiving institution may specify additional course work required for a major or for degree requirements or to make up the difference between the Transfer Module and the institution’s total General Education requirements.

Any student holding an Oregon Transfer Module that conforms to the guidelines below will have met the requirements for the Transfer Module at any Oregon community college or public institution.

Oregon Transfer Module credits also may not match program requirements in the receiving school. Students are encouraged to meet with a counselor or academic advisor for planning their courses. The Oregon Transfer Module includes 45 credits of course work, equivalent to 3 academic quarters.
