Transfer Module

The transfer of credits from one Ohio public college (university) to another has now been guaranteed with the development of the transfer module by the Ohio Board of Regents for students with acceptable academic records.

Students who successfully complete the transfer module at one public college or university (such as Stark State College) will have met the transfer module requirements of the college (university) to which they transfer. However, students may be required to meet additional general education requirements. Students are encouraged to meet with counselors at both institutions to receive the necessary information and advice.

Stark State College's transfer module contains a minimum of 36-40 semester hours of specified courses in English, mathematics, arts and humanities, social science and natural and physical science. The table inside provides a detailed listing of transfer module courses students may take at Stark State.

A student must complete all minimum General Education requirements in the transfer module in order to ensure complete transferability of all transfer module credits.

For further information, please call the Office of Admissions at 330-966-5450 or 1-800-79-STARK.

Stark State College is committed to equal opportunity for all and does not discriminate
on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, gender, national origin, military status, pregnancy,
disability, age, genetic information, or sexual orientation.

USING THE TRANSFER MODULE
Instructions: The transfer module consists of 36-40 semester credit hours of courses in English, mathematics, arts/humanities, social science and natural science. Students should follow these directions in selecting courses for the transfer module.

A student must complete all minimum general education requirements in the transfer module (see column 2 of table), in order to ensure complete transferability of all transfer module credits.

  1. Select courses that satisfy transfer module minimum requirements (31-33 semester credit hours) from introductory courses listed in column two (general education requirements applied to transfer module minimums).
  2. Select courses that satisfy the remainder of the transfer module requirements (six semester credit hours) from the courses listed in columns two and/or three (additional general education requirements needed in transfer module).

Completion of the requirements of columns two and three will fulfill the requirements of the transfer module. The student's transcripts will reflect completion of the transfer module.

NOTE: Be sure to check with a counselor or advisor to ensure that courses selected for completion of the transfer module and associate degree are appropriate for your major and will transfer to the college/university selected.
