ITAGs Timeline & Documents Compliance FAQs

ITAGs are a statewide transfer initiative that guarantees the awarding of college-level credit to students who earn agreed-upon, industry-recognized credentials. The award of credit is based upon the knowledge, skills, and competencies gained through credential attainment, regardless of where the learning to prepare for the credential took place.

Statewide panels are composed of postsecondary faculty, industry representatives, and educators from Ohio Technical Centers (OTCs) and/or Secondary Career-Technical Centers. Each ITAG panel will work to align content from the specified credential to postseondary learning outcomes. Each new ITAG will be sent to Ohio's public colleges and universities for feedback and endorsement prior to being announced.

In some instances, ITAGs will overlap with other transfer initiatives. This will expand access to other statewide transfer agreements (CTAGs, MTAGs, and TAGs) but not replace them.
