Ohio Transfer 36

The Ohio Transfer 36 (formerly Ohio Transfer Module) provides guaranteed transfer credit for a complete set or subset of general education requirements from one Ohio public college or university to another. This ensures timely progress toward your degree by guaranteeing successful completion of general education coursework throughout your transfer experience. This Ohio program helps transferring students by ensuring the quality of the general education courses taken, as well as the acceptance of the transfer of credit to any public college or university in Ohio.

  • Consistent with Ohio’s Articulation and Transfer Policy, North Central State College’s transfer module consists of 38 semester credit hours of coursework in English composition, mathematics, arts and humanities, social and behavioral sciences, and natural and physical sciences. Once you completes the NC State Transfer Module in its entirety, with a “D” or better in each course, the entire module is guaranteed to be transferable to any state-supported college or university in Ohio in place of that institution’s module.

  • These are the courses included in NC State’s transfer module. More information on approved courses for the OT36 is available on the Ohio Department of Higher Education website.

  • 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. Specifically, students should identify early in their collegiate studies an institution and major to which they desire to transfer. Students should also determine if there are any special course requirements that can be met during their time at NC State. This will enable students to plan and pursue a course of study that will articulate with the receiving institution’s major. Students will work with their advisor to get the information they need regarding transfer and the contacts for communicating with the college or university to which they plan to transfer.

  • The Ohio Department of Higher Education, following the directive of the Ohio General Assembly, developed a statewide Articulation and Transfer Policy to facilitate movement of students and transfer credits from one Ohio public college or university to another. Students are guaranteed the transfer of applicable general education credits among Ohio’s public colleges and universities and equitable treatment in the application of credits to admissions and degree requirements.

    The purpose of the state policy is to avoid duplication of course requirements and to enhance student mobility throughout Ohio’s higher educational system. Since private colleges and universities in Ohio may or may not be participating in the transfer policy, students interested in transferring to a private institution are encouraged to check with their advisor or the college or university of their choice regarding transfer agreements.

Ohio Guaranteed Transfer Pathways

The Ohio Guaranteed Transfer Pathways (OGTP) provide a clear path to associate degree completion and then to bachelor’s degree completion in a related major. By following an OGTP, you can ensure that you are taking coursework that will not only transfer but apply to your desired degree.

  • For course planning with NC State, check out the Ohio Guaranteed Transfer Pathways tool here. You can search by a specific major and/or institution. If you aren’t sure what you would like to study, you can use the undecided pathways while you decide which degree you wish to pursue. This tool offers a comprehensive listing of the Ohio Guaranteed Transfer Pathways (OGTPs) offered at Ohio’s public institutions of higher education.

Additional Information

Students meeting the requirements of the Transfer Module are subject to the following conditions:

  • The policy encourages receiving institutions to give preferential consideration for admission to students who complete the Transfer Module with a “D” or better in each course and who have successfully completed altogether at least 60 semester credit hours. These students must have an overall grade-point average of 2.00 in Transfer Module courses to be given credit for the Transfer Module, and only courses in which a “D” or better has been earned will transfer.
  • The policy encourages receiving institutions to admit, on a non-preferential consideration basis, students who complete the Transfer Module with a grade of “D” or better in each course and who have successfully completed altogether less than 60 semester credit hours. These students will be able to transfer all courses in which they received a grade of “D” or better.

Admission to a given institution does not guarantee that a transfer student will be automatically admitted to all majors, minors, or fields of concentration at that institution. However, once admitted, transfer students shall be subject to the same regulations governing applicability of catalog requirements as all other students. Furthermore, transfer students shall be accorded the same class standing and other privileges as all other students on the basis of the number of credits earned. All residency requirements must be successfully completed at the receiving institution before the granting of a degree.
