Students interested in pursuing professional degrees in medicine, dentistry or veterinary medicine are required to complete a bachelor''s degree, preferably in a related area, including any of the biological sciences. To provide a solid foundation for bachelors degree work, students are encouraged to complete the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) degree, with an emphasis on pre-med, -vet and -dentistry related coursework; a specific course of study is listed below. Students may transfer to a baccalaureate institution without the AAOT; however, completion of this degree guarantees that a student will transfer with junior standing and that all lower-division general education coursework is complete.
