COLUMBUS, OH, April 26, 2013 – In an effort to raise awareness of its Transfer to Degree Guarantee initiative, the Ohio Board of Regents has placed the credit transfer website under a new, shorter URL – transfercredit.ohio.gov. The site is designed to make it easy to see if credits earned in high school or at a career-tech center, at a two-year or four-year college or university, or in the military will transfer within the University System of Ohio.
“The Transfer to Degree Guarantee website outlines Ohio’s many statewide transfer credit guarantee initiatives, which inform students how their educational courses/programs will transfer as college credit to help them reach their highest level of academic attainment,” said Dr. Paula Compton, associate vice chancellor for articulation and transfer at the Board of Regents. “We are excited that this is the first step in our campaign to spread the news about this informative website.”
The new URL is part of a larger marketing campaign that spotlights the Transfer to Degree Guarantee and the ease of credit transfer within the University System. Additional promotion will be done via social media, videos and student testimonials in the months ahead.
“Our goal is to work with the high schools, career centers, colleges and universities so they are telling their students about credit transfer and extending the life of this campaign,” Dr. Compton said. “We want students – traditional and nontraditional – to turn their credits into a degree, and their degree into a job here in Ohio.”
