Associate of Science, Oregon Transfer Degree in Business (ASOT-Bus)

Overview

Clatsop Community College is not currently enrolling new students in the ASOT-Business program. New and prospective students seeking an associate degree in business are being directed to the Associate of Science Transfer Degree in Business

Many students attend Clatsop Community College then transfer to a four-year college. The Associate of Science Oregon Transfer Degree in Business provides an opportunity to complete the first two-years of a four-year business degree.

The ASOT-Bus is recognized at each Oregon four-year public university, and if students are accepted at any of them, they will have junior year standing for the purposes of registration only. It may be possible that there are additional lower-division course requirements that must be satisfied for the business program at the institution. It is highly recommended that students speak with an academic advisor to help plan these steps.
