Oregon Transfer Maps (Core)

The Core Transfer Maps are groups of eight classes that add up to at least 30 credits. When the full set of eight courses are successfully completed at an Oregon community college, they are guaranteed to transfer as a block to any Oregon public university, and they will count toward that university's core Bachelor's degree requirements. Core Transfer Maps are a streamlined subset of the Oregon Transfer Module and the Associates of Arts Transfer degree and can improve efficiency in credit transfer between postsecondary institutions through its organized general education framework.

  1. Courses that are designed to prepare students for college-level work are not applicable to the transfer module.
  2. When choosing courses in science and mathematics, students and advisors should check the specific requirements at receiving schools. Courses that include a laboratory component, or that deal with specific subjects, may be required for majors or degrees.
  3. Computer Science courses used in the Math/Science/Computer Science area must meet Oregon Council of Computer Chairs criteria for a science course.
  4. In Arts and Letters, the second year of a foreign language may be included, but not the first year. American Sign Language (ASL) is considered a foreign language.
  5. The Core Transfer Maps supplements but does not supplant existing articulation agreements and does not replace effective advising.
