Easy credit transfer to/from Cincinnati State
For almost all Cincinnati State degree programs, credits are designed to easily transfer to most four-year colleges and universities in the area if students choose to continue studies after graduating from Cincinnati State. So a student can begin studies at Cincinnati State, and easily transfer as a junior to another college or university.
State of Ohio Policy for Institutional Transfer
The Ohio Board of Regents makes it easy for students at one Ohio public college or university to transfer credit to another. This is achieved primarily through the transfer module, a subset or entire set of a college or university’s general education curriculum in AA, AS, and baccalaureate degree programs. Transfer Module course(s) or the full module completed at Cincinnati State will automatically meet the requirements of individual Transfer Module course(s) or the full Transfer Module at another Ohio college or university once the student is admitted. Students may be required, however, to meet additional general education requirements at the institution to which they transfer.
Here is the State of Ohio’s complete Policy for Institutional Transfer.
