We have a dual enrollment agreement with OSU.

Admissions applications are reviewed holistically. Please review OSU transfer admission requirements for specific information.

Below is information about how PCC courses transfer. To make an academic plan for transfer, contact your PCC Academic Advisor.

Transferring Credits

See how individual PCC courses will transfer using OSU’s course-by-course equivalency database.

General Education Classes

If you earn an AAOT degree or an ASOT-B degree from PCC, you will have finished your general education requirements at OSU. If you complete the Core Transfer Map (CTM) at PCC, you have completed 8 of the 13 courses required for OSU’s general education (baccalaureate core). If you do not complete one of those credentials, you can view the PCC courses that will meet their core requirements.

Major Requirements

You can access transfer guides in Biology, Business, Communication, Computer Science, Education, Electrical Engineering, English, and Psychology in the EAB Academic Planning tool.

OSU also maintains PCC transfer guides for most majors on their website. Transfer guides are organized by OSU college.

Note about catalog year: The major information is based on current catalogs. It is recommended that students do a dual-enrollment with OSU to “lock in” the catalog year requirements. The first term that a student is admitted to OSU will determine the catalog year for baccalaureate core requirements. The date of declaration of the major will determine the catalog year for the major.
