Oregon Transfer Module (OTM)

The OTM is a set of 45 general education credits recognized by all Oregon community colleges and Oregon public universities, designed for students who wish to transfer. This is not a degree or certificate but is documentation on a student’s transcript that they have met a subset of common general education requirements.

All courses must be completed with a grade of "C" or better. Students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 at the time the module is completed. Courses that are designed to prepare students for college-level work are not applicable to the transfer module. Regionally accredited private colleges and universities within the state may offer and issue the Oregon Transfer Module, which will be accepted at any Oregon public college or university. Oregon Transfer Module credits may not match program requirements in the receiving school. The OTM supplements, but does not supplant existing articulation agreements and does not replace effective advising.
