Up to 6 credits of PE185, 15 credits of IECC (200-level), 12 credits of career-technical courses (100 level and higher) and 12 credits of Cooperative Education Internship may be applied as elective credits to the AAT. See the Course Information section for elective credit/course eligibility.

Suggested electives include:

  • COMM111 Fundamentals of Public Speaking (Course offered online)
  • Philosophy (PHL) 
  • Music (MUS) or Theatre (TA) Appreciation
  • US History (HST)
  • Writing (WR) courses at the 200-level

University Bachelor of Arts / General Education requirements vary.

Work with a university adviser to ensure you are taking the right courses at MHCC.

When students complete courses at more than one Oregon community college, the AAT-granting institution will apply courses that students transfer in from other Oregon community colleges to meet Core Transfer Map and Major requirements as intended and as identified by the approved course lists at the community college where and when they were taken. 

To be awarded an AAT degree, students must:

  • Complete all requirements to total 90 applicable degree credits.
  • Earn a grade of “C” or better in each course and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 at the time the degree is awarded.
  • Satisfactorily earn 12 credit hours at MHCC. Non-traditional credit (College Level Examination Program, Experience-Based Credit, Challenge, etc.) does not satisfy this requirement.

If a course is taken as a P/NP and the student receives a "Pass" ("P"), it is considered equivalent to a C or better at all Oregon community colleges. However, it is recommended that students take courses for a letter grade and not P/NP; some individual AAT majors may limit P/NP options for specific requirements, and such limits will be noted in the major specific requirements in the MTM MOU. 

Please note: Courses may not be repeated for credit unless specified in the course description.
