Transfer Assurance Guidelines (TAGS)

Transfer Assurance Guides (TAGs) comprise Transfer Module courses and additional courses required for an academic major. A TAG is an advising tool to assist Ohio university and community and technical college students planning specific majors to make course selections that will ensure comparable, compatible, and equivalent learning experiences across the state’s higher education system. A number of area specific TAG pathways in the arts, humanities, business, communication, education, health, mathematics, science, engineering, engineering technologies, and the social sciences have been developed by faculty teams.

TAGs empower students to make informed course selection decisions and plans for their future transfer. Advisors at the institution to which a student wishes to transfer should also be consulted during the transfer process. Students may elect to complete the full TAG or any subset of courses from the TAG. Because of specific major requirements, early identification of a student's intended major is encouraged.

See a list of approved TAG courses (formerly CAS) is an online tool that will help students view program requirements, course equivalencies, and see how courses they have taken or plan to take transfer to another college or university.

Anyone can create a free account in order to:

  • View course equivalencies
  • See program requirements
  • Enter and store course work
  • Request an evaluation of transfer work against a program
