Transfer Module

The State of Ohio has developed a statewide policy to help students transfer their credits for courses completed at one Ohio public college or university to another Ohio institution. The Ohio Transfer Module policy statement is published elsewhere in this Catalog.

The Cincinnati State Transfer Module consists of 36 semester credit hours that transfer to any Ohio public two-year or four-year college or university. Categories for courses in the Cincinnati State Transfer Module are:

English Composition6
Oral Communication3
Social/Behavioral Sciences6
Natural/Physical Sciences6
Transfer Module Electives6
Total Credits36

Students earning the Transfer Module at Cincinnati State select specific courses (listed below) from the above-listed categories, in consultation with an academic advisor.

Students who graduate from Cincinnati State with the degree Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) will complete all Transfer Module requirements. Students earning the AA or AS degree also are required to complete additional courses selected from the Transfer Module categories. The full curriculum requirements for AA and AS degrees are published elsewhere in this Catalog.

Students who graduate from Cincinnati State with the degree Associate of Applied Business, Associate of Applied Science, Associate of Individualized Study, or Associate of Technical Study may complete some Transfer Module courses that are required for their degree, but will not automatically complete all Transfer Module requirements. These students may choose to take additional courses, beyond those required for their degree, in order to complete the Transfer Module.

Students who are completing the Transfer Module, either as part of an AA or AS degree or as an addition to another degree, should consult with their academic advisor to ensure that courses selected are appropriate for the institution and the degree program that the student plans to pursue after completing studies at Cincinnati State.
