Transfer Assurance Guide (TAG)

Students are guaranteed that applicable credits will transfer to and from Ohio’s public colleges and universities. Transfer Assurance Guides (TAGS) are statewide articulation/transfer agreements and are advisory tools to help students identify equivalent pre-major/beginning major courses in a specific subject area. Approved TAG courses and their associated credit hours are guaranteed to transfer and apply toward the specific major if the current and destination institutions have approved course matches during the same time period.

The following key applies to the Transfer Assurance Guide chart below ►
OAN Code ► 
The Ohio Articulation Number (OAN) represents a specific set of learning outcomes in a major that are part of a Transfer Assurance Guide (TAG). The OAN Code is used to identify the equivalency of courses between two institutions.
Effective Date ► The first academic term in which the TAG course carries a statewide credit transfer guarantee
AU = Autumn
SP = Spring
SM = Summer

Consult with your academic advisor at Edison State as well as at the destination institution before signing up for any courses. The State of Ohio’s TAG initiative is designed to assist in planning, from high school level through adult workforce levels. For more information on Transfer Assurance Guides (TAG) visit the State of Ohio’s website.
