Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer

The Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree (AAOT), which is offered without a designated major, will satisfy the lower-division general education requirements of any institution in the Oregon University System (but not necessarily school, department or major requirements with regard to courses or GPA). You may work with your advisor to concentrate your studies in an area of interest.

For purposes of the Oregon AAOT degree, no student with a disability shall be denied the degree or the benefits flowing therefrom with respect to admission and matriculation at a state university because the student has been granted an academic adjustment or program modification in any course required for the AAOT degree. This provision includes course substitutions when granted as a disability accommodation in the manner prescribed by the student’s community college. This provision may not necessarily apply to major specific course requirements or prerequisites.

Associate of Science Oregon State Direct Transfer (with an emphasis in a specific area)

The college offers an Associate of Science degree (AS), a lower-division degree intended to facilitate a transfer to Oregon State University.

Associate of General Studies

The Associate of General Studies (AGS) degree is awarded to students who complete a two-year curriculum, which may include lower-division collegiate and/or career and technical coursework. You may earn an Associate of General Studies degree in any program of study available at LBCC.
