Columbus, OH - As part of its effort to raise awareness of the Transfer to Degree Guarantee initiative within the University System of Ohio, the Ohio Board of Regents, in collaboration with Fahlgren Mortine, has distributed around the state a series of videos touting the benefits of the state’s articulation and transfer system.
The videos feature transfer students, high school students, veterans, school counselors, administrators, and faculty talking about their own experiences with the Transfer to Degree Guarantee.
“In addition to a main video that provides an overview of the initiative, there are several shorter clips that are ideal for use on social media,” said Jeff Robinson, director of communications for the Ohio Board of Regents. “We hope our two-year and four-year institutions, as well as our career technical centers, will use these clips on their own websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds, and other social media to show current and prospective students how the Transfer to Degree Guarantee can save them time and money on the way to a certificate, a degree, and a career.”
The videos were also shared with the Ohio Department of Education for distribution to guidance counselors throughout the state. The videos are part of a larger campaign to promote the Transfer to Degree Guarantee. Last year, a new website – https://transfercredit.ohio.gov – was created for the initiative, which is designed to help the thousands of students who transfer within the University System of Ohio each academic year.
The main video can be accessed at the transfercredit.ohio.gov home page, while the social media clips are housed on the Board of Regents’ website at https://ohiohighered.org/transfer/branding.

The Chancellor, with the advice of the nine-member Board of Regents, provides policy guidance to the Governor and the Ohio General Assembly, advocates for the University System of Ohio and carries out state higher education policy.
