State of Ohio Transfer Information
NC State’s Transfer Module
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 a student 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. The student must, of course, meet the admissions criteria of the particular state-supported institution before the module can be transferred. Also, students may be required by the receiving institution to meet additional general education requirements beyond those included in the Transfer Module, so long as the same requirements apply to native students.
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.
The Ohio Transfer Module helps transferring students by assuring them the quality of the general education courses that they complete but also by ensuring that the credits earned for these OTM courses will be accepted for transfer by other colleges and universities in the University System of Ohio.
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.
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.
