Oregon Transfer Module

The Oregon Transfer Module (OTM) provides a one-year curriculum for students who plan to transfer to a state of Oregon two-year or four-year college/university of higher education. The Oregon Transfer Module is neither a certificate nor a degree; it represents the successful completion of certain general education courses. OTM completion will be noted in the student’s record. The Oregon Transfer Module documents that a student has met a subset of the common general education requirements at all Oregon community colleges and state universities in Oregon.

The Oregon Transfer Module requirements at Oregon State University are:

  • 45 lower-division credits—minimum of 12 credits must be OSU course work according to the attached list
  • Minimum grade of C– for each course
  • Minimum cumulative GPA 2.0 at time Oregon Transfer Module is completed
  • Students are allowed 3 S/U credits per full time term or a maximum of 9 S/U credits in the Oregon Transfer Module.

OSU students planning to complete the Oregon Transfer Module must file the OTM Completion Application with the Registrar’s Office. Students should fill out the form when the module is completed or they are in the last term of completion.

Upon successful review by OSU and completion of the Oregon Transfer Module, a notation will be added to the student’s OSU record indicating the module is complete and the date. The notation will appear on the transcript as follows:

"Oregon Transfer Module Completed day-month-year"
