Clackamas Community College

Associate of Arts Transfer Degree (AAT)

An Associate of Arts Transfer (AAT) Degree is a lower division major-specific undergraduate award issued by a community college that indicates satisfactory completion of a course of study that is intended to prepare students for transfer to a public university in Oregon and have junior standing in a specific Bachelor of Arts degree program. The classes, outcomes, and completion standards for the major-specific Associate Transfer degrees are defined by a statewide memorandum of understanding between participating community colleges and public universities. In majors where junior standing within 90 credits is not possible, students who complete an Associate of Arts Transfer degree will have equivalent status to students who started at a public university in the same major. Memoranda of understanding are approved by the Commission and will be published on the HECC website.
