Transfer Assurance Guides (TAGs)

TAGs comprise Ohio Transfer 36 courses and additional courses (called TAG courses) that are required for an academic major. A TAG is an advising tool to assist Ohio university and community and technical college students in planning for specific majors and making course selections that are comparable and compatible, and offer equivalent learning experiences across Ohio’s public higher education system. A number of area-specific TAG pathways in meta-majors including the arts, humanities, business, communication, education, health, mathematics, sciences, engineering, engineering technologies, social sciences, and foreign languages have been developed by faculty panels comprised of subject area experts from across Ohio's public institutions of higher education.

TAGs enable students to make informed course selection decisions and plans for their future transfer of coursework. Advisors at the institution to which a student wishes to transfer should be consulted during the transfer process. Because of specific major requirements, early identification of the intended major is encouraged.  Learn more about TAGs and/or see Tri-C's approved TAG courses below.  Learn more about TAG definitions and pathways, including specific program area pathways.  Learn more about TAG pre-requisites that are listed in the TAG on the ODHE website under Ohio Transfer 36 requirements, but may not be listed in the tables below.
