Transfer Council - Background and Public Meetings

The Transfer Council focuses on improving transfer and articulation to better serve Oregon students. Here you will find background information on the work of the Transfer Council and information on how to engage with the Council's work at public meetings.  

Legislation in 2021 created the Transfer Council and charged it with developing recommendations to the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) on new transfer and credit policies and agreements, building on previous statewide work to streamline transfer pathways.

About the Transfer Council

The Transfer Council was created with the passage of Senate Bill 233 in 2021. This legislation charged the Council with developing recommendations to the HECC related to transfer agreements (Major Transfer Maps), Common Course Numbering, and other transfer and credit-related concerns.

Development of new Major Transfer Maps (MTMs): new major-specific agreements that prepare students for transfer into one of Oregon’s public universities in a particular major. Find information on implementing MTMs, including approved MTMs, and information guiding future work. Engage on the development of new MTMs by attending public meetings of the Transfer Council and the MTM Subcommittees.

Development of Common Course Numbering (CCN): alignment of commonly taken courses across the public institutions in order to help students receive transfer credit for these courses. Find information on implementing CCN, including approved coursework and information guiding future work. Engage in the expansion of CCN by attending public meetings of the Transfer Council and the CCN Subcommittees.
