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.
