Responsibilities of Students in Credit Transfers

In order to facilitate transfer with maximum applicability of transfer credit, prospective transfer students should plan a course of study that will meet the requirements of a degree program at the receiving institution. Transfer Assurance Guides (TAGs) are designed to provide advice about course selection that will guarantee that courses taken within a TAG will transfer and apply to particular majors. Specifically, students should identify early in their collegiate studies an institution and major to which they desire to transfer. Furthermore, students should determine if there are language requirements or any special course requirements, such as prerequisite courses or the initial parts of course sequences, that can be met during the freshman or sophomore year. This will enable students to plan and pursue a course of study that will articulate with the receiving institution's major. Students are encouraged to seek further information regarding transfer from their advisor, the college or university to which they plan to transfer, and from the Ohio Board of Regents at http://regents.ohio.gov/transfer/tags/index.php.
