Transfer schools

Transferring to University of Oregon

University of Oregon

University of Oregon is located in Eugene, just a few hours south of Portland. U of O offers majors in more than 270 science and liberal arts options. Approximately 20,500 undergraduates attend the University of Oregon. Top majors include Business, Architecture, and Journalism. See how many credits you’ll need, GPA requirements, and how to apply on U of O's Transfer Student Admissions site.

Classes you can take at PCC

General education classes

If you earn an AAOT degree or an ASOTB degree from PCC, you will have finished your general education requirements at UO.

If you transfer without one of the transferable degrees, see the University of Oregon's general education requirements. You can check course-by-course to see how PCC's general education classes will transfer.

  • See how PCC classes transfer course-by-course: UO’s course equivalencies
  • U of O will accept a maximum of 24 credits, with no more than 12 credits in each area from:
    • Lower-division professional-technical courses
    • PE and Dance activity courses
    • Music performance courses
    • Applied and/or experiential courses, courses focusing on academic support skills, or career and professional development courses
Major-specific classes

These are required classes for specific programs, and the equivalent classes at PCC.

Don't see your major? This is not a complete list of all the majors you can transfer into at this school. If you don't see your major, you just need to research program requirements on your transfer school's website. See how to transfer from PCC to a four-year school.

Heads up! We do our best to keep this site current, but transfer requirements tend to change without warning. Always check with an advisor at your transfer school before making your final decision about classes.
