Oregon Transfer Module

The Oregon Transfer Module (OTM) provides a one-year curriculum for students who plan to transfer to a state of Oregon community college or university. The module allows students to complete one year of general education foundation course work that is academically sound and will meet the admission standards of the receiving school.

The OTM is undergoing a continuing improvement process with Joint Boards Advisory Council (JBAC). Changes to the following may occur.

Students should work closely with an academic advisor to ensure selection of appropriate course work.
Upon transfer, students may be required to complete additional course work in general education, or an academic major, that is specific to the receiving institution. Students who transfer prior to the completion of the Oregon Transfer Module will have their courses individually evaluated by the receiving institution. Students must complete a minimum of 45 credits of lower division course work with a grade of "C-" or better in order to receive credit for the Oregon Transfer Module.
