External Articulation Resources

Transferology identifies course equivalencies between institutions. Users can input coursework, exams, and military learning experiences to see if schools in the Transferology network have matching courses. It is a great tool to help prospective and transfer students to develop a clearer understanding how much of their experiences and coursework to date will actually count toward degree completion at their chosen institution.

The Ohio Transfer Module provides detailed information regarding Ohio's Articulation and Transfer Policy.

Transfer Assurance Guides identify equivalent pre-major/beginning major courses in specific subject areas and can be used to identify course matches between institutions.

Transfer to Degree Guarantee provides information and resources for students seeking the shortest path to degree completion.
