Welcome to the Eastern Gateway Community College, your Partner in TRANSFER 

Start Here. Finish Anywhere!

How can I Finish Here?

You can Start @ EGCC and Transfer Anywhere!!!

Welcome to the Eastern Gateway Community College, your Partner in TRANSFER!

Begin your journey at EGCC and Finish Anywhere!

Our goal is your success!

Do you want to continue your education at a four-year college or university?  If your goal is a bachelor’s degree, EGCC is a great place to start that educational journey.  You can complete your first couple years of college at a lower tuition rate, closer to home or online; then transfer your credits anywhere. We are always working to develop seamless pathways to transfer for our students.

EGCC has developed many transfer opportunities for you including:

  • Transfer guides and articulation agreements with four-year colleges and universities;
  • Ohio TAG, CTAG, MTAG articulation guarantee courses;
  • Ohio Transfer Module coursework;
  • Frequent campus visits from college and university representatives;
  • The Transfer@EGCC! Blog

A student interested in transfer should immediately contact his/her advisor so that early planning ensures success in the transfer process.

The Ohio Board of Regents, following the directive of the Ohio General Assembly, has developed statewide directives to facilitate transfer from one Ohio public college or university to another. Private colleges and universities in Ohio may or may not participate in transfer directives, so students should always check with the institution of their choice regarding transfer requirements. Colleges in other states are also not obliged to follow Ohio directives. Note that agreements between EGCC and private colleges and universities and between EGCC and colleges and universities in the area also exist, and also note that most colleges in the United States do accept general education credits and sometimes credits in the major field from students transferring into their institution. Again it is important that students plan transfer carefully and work with both EGCC and the institution to which the student is transferring.

Once students are admitted to a transfer institution, they are subject to the same rights, privileges and degree requirements as native students at that institution. Students are subject to the residency requirements of that institution.

Finish It @ EGCC!!!

Our goal is your success!

Many students choose EGCC after they’ve traveled another road. Our goal at EGCC is your success! You may have started your education somewhere else, but we want you to complete your educational goal here.  If you are transferring credits into EGCC, start here with the admissions process.

If you completed a career technical education program at a secondary or adult career center or high school, you may be eligible for articulated credit. EGCC has developed many articulation agreements that provide students with college credit

Students may transfer credits into EGCC. The college accepts courses from accredited institutions that are equivalent to courses offered at EGCC. (See Transfer Credit under Registration for more specific information on transferring credits into EGCC.)

TRANSFER TO EGCC!!!

EGCC has developed bilateral agreements with many of Ohio’s career and technical education centers and high schools to provide career technical education students with opportunities to transfer into EGCC with articulated credit. These bilateral agreements allow career technical education students to reduce redundancy of coursework and time to degree. Career technical education students who have participated in programs with articulation pathways should work with their EGCC enrollment specialists and their career center or high school to ensure proper articulation of college credit is followed. EGCC has articulation is place with the following secondary career centers and high schools:

  • Buckeye Local High School
  • Choffin Career & Technical Center
  • Columbiana Career & Technical Center
  • East Liverpool High School
  • Edison Local High School
  • Indian Creek High School
  • Jefferson County Joint Vocational School
  • Mahoning County Career & Technical Center
  • Steubenville High School
  • Trumbull Career & Technical Center 

CAREER TECHNICAL EDUCATION ARTICULATION AND

CREDIT TRANSFER (CT2)

Legislation directs the Ohio Board of Regents to work collaboratively with the Ohio Department of Education, public adult and secondary career technical education, and state-supported institutions of higher education to establish criteria, policies, and procedures to transfer agreed upon technical courses from one system to another.  There are 32 CTAG pathways in 24 specific career-technical areas. The following CTAG courses are available for transfer into EGCC programs:

Advanced Placement (AP): https://www.ohiohighered.org/transfer/ap

Students in Ohio who take a College Board Advanced Placement examination and score at least a ‘3’ are guaranteed college credit upon entering an Ohio Public Institution of Higher Education.

The State of Ohio, working through the University System of Ohio, has initiated policies to facilitate the ease of transition from high school to college as well as between and among Ohio’s Public colleges and universities. Beginning in the Fall term 2009:

  1. Students obtaining an Advanced Placement (AP) exam score of 3 or above will be awarded the aligned course(s) and credits for the AP exam area(s) successfully completed.
  2. General Education courses and credits received will be applied towards graduation and will satisfy a general education requirement if the course(s) to which the AP area is equivalent fulfill a requirement.
  3. If an equivalent course is not available for the AP exam area completed, elective or area credit will be awarded in the appropriate academic discipline and will be applied towards graduation where such elective credit options exist within the academic major.
  4. Additional courses or credits may be available when a score of 4 or 5 is obtained. Award of credit for higher score values varies depending on the institution and academic discipline.
  5. In academic disciplines containing highly dependent sequences (Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics –STEM) students are strongly advised to confer with the college/university advising staff to ensure they have the appropriate foundation to be successful in advanced coursework within the sequence.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP): https://www.ohiohighered.g/transfer/clep

The Ohio Articulation and Transfer Network (OATN) announced a new statewide policy on the awarding of college credit for 12 College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams.  The OATN Oversight Board-recommended process to develop a statewide CLEP policy was followed which included statewide faculty panels making CLEP alignment recommendations for each exam. The work will be done in three phases.

Phase I:  The credit granting policy for the 12 exams in Phase I will be fully implemented Fall 2017 applicable to students who are enrolled at a public institution of higher education in Fall 2017 whose CLEP scores have not yet been evaluated for college credit.

EGCC Phase I alignments: https://www.ohiohighered.org/sites/ohiohighered.org/files/uploads/transfer/documents/CLEP/Eastern%20Gateway%20Community%20College%20CLEP%20Credit%20Alignments_0.pdf

Phase II:  The credit granting policy for Phase II CLEP scores will be implemented in Spring Semester 2018 applicable to students who are enrolled at a public institution of higher education whose CLEP scores have not yet been evaluated for college credit.

EGCC Phase II alignments:   Effective 1/1/2018 and will be released once completed.

Credit When Its Due (CWID)

Ohio’s Credit When It’s Due (CWID) initiative started in 2013 to assist eligible students with obtaining an associate degree through collaboration between Ohio’s public institutions. CWID emphasizes degree attainment for students that have some college experience but no degree by offering a pathway to an associate degree. Students can benefit by earning an associate degree while working toward a baccalaureate degree, or by earning a degree with college credit earned at a two-year college attended previously. All of Ohio’s 23 community colleges and 13 universities participate in the Credit When It’s Due initiative, with more than 1,000 degrees already awarded by the end of 2014.

Increasing credential attainment in Ohio is one of the Department of Higher Education’s top priorities. CWID provides Ohio’s two-year and four-year institutions the resources to award associate degrees to students who have completed the requisite course work, but have not received a degree.   Frequently Asked Questions.

If you have further questions on CWID opportunities, please contact the EGCC Registrar’s Office.

Transfer Out

TRANSFER FROM EGCC!!

Begin your journey at EGCC and Finish Anywhere! That’s right. Eastern Gateway Community College is your partner in transfer.  Opportunities to transfer courses into four-year degree programs exist at Eastern Gateway Community College in several ways:

  • Articulation Agreements
  • Equivalency Guides
  • Ohio Transfer Module
  • Transfer Assurance Guide

A student interested in transfer should immediately contact his/her advisor so that early planning ensures success in the transfer process.

Students may also transfer credits into EGCC. The college accepts courses from accredited institutions that are equivalent to courses offered at EGCC. (See Transfer Credit under Registration for more specific information on transferring credits into EGCC.)

The Ohio Board of Regents, following the directive of the Ohio General Assembly, has developed statewide directives to facilitate transfer from one Ohio public college or university to another. Private colleges and universities in Ohio may or may not participate in transfer directives, so students should always check with the institution of their choice regarding transfer requirements.

Once students are admitted to a transfer institution, they are subject to the same rights, privileges and degree requirements as native students at that institution. Students are subject to the residency requirements of that institution.

STUDENT REPONSIBILITIES FOR SUCCESSFUL TRANSFER

In order to facilitate transfer with maximum applicability of transfer credit, prospective transfer students should plan a course of study that will meet the requirements of a degree program at the receiving institution. Students should use the Ohio Transfer Module, Transfer Assurance Guides, and Transferology for guidance in planning the transfer process. Specifically, students should identify early in their collegiate studies an institution and major to which they desire to transfer.

Furthermore, students should determine if there are language requirements or any special course requirements that can be met during the freshman or sophomore year. This will enable students to plan and pursue a course of study that will articulate with the receiving institution’s major. Students are encouraged to seek further information regarding transfer from both their advisor and the college or university to which they plan to transfer.

OHIO TRANSFER ARTICULATION GUARANTEE (TAG) COURSES 

TRANSFER ASSURANCE GUIDE COURSES (TAGS)

The Transfer Assurance Guides include the Ohio Transfer Module, both required and elective courses, and then moves beyond those courses into additional hours in pre- major and major courses. Courses in TAGs are guaranteed to transfer and apply directly to a student’s major. In its totality, the TAGs become a guaranteed pathway for students and are a very powerful advising tool for faculty and other advisors. There are 48 TAGs in 12 specific discipline areas presently involving 4,000 approved matches. The TAGs are developed, approved, and monitored by Ohio’s public institutions for higher education. Students must keep in mind that this guarantee only applies to Ohio public universities, although many private institutions in Ohio follow the same directives. Students should make sure to work with advisors at both institutions.

Following is the list of EGCC TAG approved courses. Always check with the transferring institution before making decisions.  Students may check the EGCC approved Ohio Transfer Module courses listed under Transfer Module in this section.

TRANSFER OPPORTUNITIES

TRANSFEROLOGY

Transferology is a web based tool used to see how courses taken at one institution transfer and apply toward a degree at another institution. All Ohio two-year and four-year public colleges and universities use Transferology. Create a free account by visiting www.transferology.com. Once a student becomes a member of Transferology (free), he/she can:

  • view course information and programs at other institutions
  • check course equivalencies between institutions as determined by the receiving institution
  • research degree requirements at the institution of your choice
  • discover how the courses you have already taken apply toward a degree at another institution
  • store your coursework so that the system can analyze your program and let you know what courses you need for the institutions with which you are working
  • send additional questions regarding transfer to a college or university

Military veterans, your training, experience and coursework may translate into college credit at EGCC. To gain college credit, your coursework and experience to be recognized by the American Council on Education (ACE) or a regional accrediting body such as the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).  You can check Transferology to see which institutions will grant credit for your military training:

Step 1: Log into your Transferology™ account, then click on the Military Credits tab under the Courses heading

Step 2: Choose the appropriate Year that you served

Step 3: Choose the branch of the U.S. Armed Force for which you have served

Step 4: If desired, you may select a Pay Grade

Step 5: Select the desired Course(s) by clicking on the green “+” sign under the Hours column.  Be sure to select all the courses that apply to you.

Step 6: On the right of the page, click on the button “Find schools that accept my coursework” to begin the matching process to find a school near you.

ARTICULATION AGREEMENTS

EGCC has transfer agreements with many institutions. In most cases, the two years at EGCC also qualifies the student for an Associate of Arts degree from EGCC. Students are encouraged to apply for the two-year degree as many institutions accept two-year degrees in their entirety, rather than evaluate courses one by one. Do keep in mind that successful transfer depends upon careful planning, good advising, and maintaining the goal of a particular major. Changing a major after transferring may result in the loss of transferable credits.

Types of Articulated Agreements:

Course-to-Course: A course-to-course articulation matches the EGCC course to a specific course at the four-year institution. The four-year institution has reviewed EGCC’s courses to match them to their course equivalents.

Institutional: An institutional agreement provides graduates with a specific EGCC degree, usually the Associate of Arts and/or Associate of Science Degrees, with junior status upon successful enrollment at the four-year institution.

Programmatic: A programmatic agreement provides graduates with a specific EGCC degree an opportunity for seamless transfer into a specific degree pathway at the four-year institution.
