Oregon Transfer Module -Tillamook Bay Community College

Oregon Transfer Module

OTM is a one-year course of study for students who plan to transfer to a community college or university in Oregon. This group of courses will not lead to a certificate or degree at TBCC. Its purpose is to give you a one-year basic foundation and meet some basic requirements before you transfer to a four-year school.

Work closely with a Career Education Advisor at TBCC to select appropriate course work.

If you transfer before you finish the OTM, your courses will be evaluated by the Oregon college or university individually.

To earn the OTM, you must complete a minimum of 45 credits of lower division course work with a grade of “C” or better.
