What's an AAOT?

The Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) degree is the best choice for students who plan to transfer to one of the Oregon public universities. Students who complete the AAOT and are accepted at their transfer college transfer in as a junior, and will be admitted as having completed most lower division comprehensive and general education requirements for a baccalaureate degree.

Some baccalaureate degrees require specific lower-division courses, and course, class standing or GPA, and requirements for specific majors, departments or schools are not necessarily satisfied by an AAOT degree. Students should work closely with their CGCC advisor and with a transfer advisor at the institution to which they intend to transfer.

Why start here?

  • It's less expensive - simply put, CGCC costs less than attending a 4-year school. Why pay more, when you can save at CGCC?
  • On-campus housing - if you're looking for a "traditional college experience" that includes living away from home for the first time, CGCC now has on-campus housing.
  • Great location - CGCC is located in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge! If you're a fan of the outdoors, or any water or snow sports, this is the place for you.
