* These courses may be completed at the 200-level but will not be given 300-level credit. 60 credits need to be taken at the 300-400 level.

**Organic Chemistry - CH 241, 242, 243 (only as a complete sequence and with C or better in all courses) may be used to fulfill the organic chemistry requirement at OSU.The CC organic chemistry courses are transferred as lower division (LD) credit because the courses are officially 200-level at the community college.If a student takes a complete year of organic chemistry with laboratory each term at an Oregon Community College (CH 241, 242, 243) and transfers to OSU, the student normally receives lower credit. The course work may appear on the transcript as various combinations of CH 331, CH 332, CH 337, and unspecified LDT credit (lower division transfer). In accordance with an OUS (formally OSSHE) memo (August 1, 1995), a student can receive upper division credit (300 level) if they pass the ACS organic exam.

 

Pre Dietetics option: Dietitians provide guidance to the public about nutrition and diet. Students must declare the Pre-Dietetics option through the HHS Advising office and complete Pre-Dietetics coursework with a grade of B- or better in each of the NUTR courses, a grade of C- or better in each of the other courses listed, and a grade point average of 3.0 or higher for the listed courses as a whole. Admission to Oregon State University makes one eligible to apply for admission to the dietetics program. Students are accepted into the dietetics option as undergraduates, post baccalaureates, graduates and transfer students after meeting the pre-requisite courses and grade requirements. The Dietetics degree option at OSU is accredited by the American Dietetic Association and prepares students to become registered dietitians. This option provides the course work and preparation to enter a supervised dietetic internship, pass the registered dietitian (RD) exam, and become a leader in the profession. Graduates from OSU's program consistently exceed the national average for placement into accredited dietetic internships and for passing the RD exam the first time.

The Nutrition and Health Science option is designed for students who want to focus more in the sciences and the scientific basis of nutrition. Courses include chemistry, biochemistry, biology, physiology, psychology, physics, math, statistics, and food and nutrition. Students may pursue careers in medicine, academia and/or health related research. Professionals trained in nutrition science have many career options due to population growth and aging, the focus on prevention of chronic diseases, and a growing emphasis on health, nutrition, and wellness.

 

Additional Requirements

For PCC courses that transfer to OSU, refer to Transfer Equivalencies above. If you plan to get an AAOT degree, all OSU Baccalaureate Core Requirements will be met by AAOT degree requirements. Be sure to take all other required courses.

PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
