Oregon transfer agreements

Transfer students entering WOU who have earned either an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree (AAOT) from an Oregon community college under the May 1988 transfer agreement or an Associate of Science in Business degree (ASOTB) from an Oregon community college under the April 2003 transfer agreement will be considered as having met WOU’s Liberal Arts Core Curriculum (LACC). For purposes of course registration only, students holding an AAOT or ASOTB will be considered to have junior standing.

Students who have earned the Oregon Transfer Module (OTM) will meet the WOU first-year general education graduation requirements. For purposes of registration only, students holding the Oregon Transfer Module will be considered to have at least sophomore standing.

A notation verifying that the associate’s degree meets the Oregon Transfer Degree requirements or Oregon Transfer Module requirements must be included on the stu­dent’s official transcript. For more informa­tion, please see wou.edu/provost/registrar/ otm.html.

Other transfer agreements

Students from designated Western states who have earned specific transfer degrees will be considered as having met WOU’s Liberal Arts Core Curriculum (LACC). The transfer degrees are as follows:

  • California: Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC)
  • Hawaii: Articulated Associates of Arts from University of Hawaii
  • Washington: Direct Transfer Degree

Students who have earned one of the transfer degrees listed above will have automatically met WOU's Liberal Arts Core Curriculum (LACC) requirements but not automatically met the BA, BS, or BM special graduation requirements.

If you have received one of the transfer degree listed above, it is best to begin your advising process with a faculty advisor (see the shared advising model for more information). You are still more than welcome to meet with our staff to discuss your B.A./B.S. requirements, though you will likely be beginning your major course work during your first term at WOU.

If you have not received an AAOT/ASOT degree, you should set up a meeting with both an Academic Advisor in the Academic Advising and Learning Center to review your articulated credits then apply them towards the WOU general education requirements and a faculty advisor in the department you intend to major in.
