Career-Technical Transfer Assurance Guides (CTAGs)

CTAGs are statewide articulation agreements that guarantee the recognition of learning which occurs at public adult and secondary career-technical institutions and have the opportunity for the awarding of college-credit.  These statewide career-technical discipline specific articulation agreements ensure that students completing coursework at an adult or secondary career-technical institution can articulate and transfer agreed-upon technical courses/programs to any Ohio public institution of higher education and among Ohio public institutions of higher education "without unnecessary duplication or institutional barriers."

Career-Technical Articulation Number (CTAN)

A CTAN consists of learning outcomes representing knowledge and skills in a technical area needed to transition from career–technical education to public institutions of higher education. Learning outcomes are based on recognized industry standards established by faculty panels. Each CTAN in the technical area is assigned an identifying number. Learn more about CTAGs or see Tri-C's approved courses below.
