We will be there every step of the way to answer questions and help you transfer seamlessly.

The steps to transfer are simple:

  1. Tell us your transfer goals when you start at NC State—your career interests and the bachelor’s program and the university or type of university where you want to continue your studies.
  2. Meet with your advisor each semester to refine and focus your interests and to plan a program at NC State that will transfer intact to the university you choose.
  3. Attend visits and consultations with the university representatives that your NC State advisor arranges.
  4. Start your third year in the university bachelor’s program with your program well defined and university connections made.

Ohio Transfer Module (OTM)

The Ohio Transfer Module helps transferring students by assuring them the quality of the general education courses that they complete but also by ensuring that the credits earned for these OTM courses will be accepted for transfer by other colleges and universities in the University System of Ohio.

Transfer Module Guarantee. The Ohio Department of Higher Education, following the directive of the Ohio General Assembly, developed a statewide Articulation and Transfer Policy to facilitate movement of students and transfer credits from one Ohio public college or university to another. Students are guaranteed the transfer of applicable general education credits among Ohio’s public colleges and universities and equitable treatment in the application of credits to admissions and degree requirements.

The purpose of the state policy is to avoid duplication of course requirements and to enhance student mobility throughout Ohio’s higher educational system. Since private colleges and universities in Ohio may or may not be participating in the transfer policy, students interested in transferring to a private institution are encouraged to check with their advisor or the college or university of their choice regarding transfer agreements.

NC State’s Transfer Module. Consistent with Ohio’s Articulation and Transfer Policy, North Central State College’s transfer module consists of 38 semester credit hours of coursework in English composition, mathematics, arts and humanities, social and behavioral sciences, and natural and physical sciences. Once a student completes the NC State Transfer Module in its entirety, with a “D” or better in each course, the entire module is guaranteed to be transferable to any state-supported college or university in Ohio in place of that institution’s module. The student must, of course, meet the admissions criteria of the particular state-supported institution before the module can be transferred. Also, students may be required by the receiving institution to meet additional general education requirements beyond those included in the Transfer Module, so long as the same requirements apply to native students.

Students meeting the requirements of the Transfer Module are subject to the following conditions:

  • The policy encourages receiving institutions to give preferential consideration for admission to students who complete the Transfer Module with a “D” or better in each course and who have successfully completed altogether at least 60 semester credit hours. These students must have an overall grade-point average of 2.00 in Transfer Module courses to be given credit for the Transfer Module, and only courses in which a “D” or better has been earned will transfer.
  • The policy encourages receiving institutions to admit, on a non-preferential consideration basis, students who complete the Transfer Module with a grade of “D” or better in each course and who have successfully completed altogether less than 60 semester credit hours. These students will be able to transfer all courses in which they received a grade of “D” or better.

Admission to a given institution does not guarantee that a transfer student will be automatically admitted to all majors, minors, or fields of concentration at that institution. However, once admitted, transfer students shall be subject to the same regulations governing applicability of catalog requirements as all other students. Furthermore, transfer students shall be accorded the same class standing and other privileges as all other students on the basis of the number of credits earned. All residency requirements must be successfully completed at the receiving institution before the granting of a degree.

Transfer Module Guidance. 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. Specifically, students should identify early in their collegiate studies an institution and major to which they desire to transfer. Students should also determine if there are any special course requirements that can be met during their time at NC State. This will enable students to plan and pursue a course of study that will articulate with the receiving institution’s major. Students will work with their advisor to get the information they need regarding transfer and the contacts for communicating with the college or university to which they plan to transfer.

NC State Transfer Degree Programs

All NC State degree credits will transfer in whole or in part to other colleges and universities. The Associate of Arts and the Associate of Science degrees consist largely of general education credits, and they are especially designed for transfer in entirety. However, many or most of the credits in applied degrees will also transfer and will allow you to get work experience while or before continuing your education. The choice of a degree program depends on your career goals and individual situation.  All students should discuss their goals and interests during their first semester at NC State.

 

Transfer to North Central State College

North Central State College makes the transfer of credits in easy for students who have completed course work at an institution other than North Central State College and would like that coursework to be considered for credit towards a North Central State College program/degree.

To ensure a seamless and successful transition, NC State follows these guidelines and procedures for students transferring credits in:

  • NC State Admissions alerts all incoming students of the potential for the awarding of prior-earned credit.
  • All students with prior credit wishing to be evaluated need to contact their previous institution(s) and have an official transcript sent to North Central State College Registrar (Student Records) by mail or through a 3rd party transcript service.
  • Credits are accepted only from institutions that have regional or national accreditation. Credits are not awarded for courses where the student received below a D- (prior to fall 2006). For courses completed before September 2005, a grade of at least a C- must have been received in any course accepted for transfer credit. For courses completed after September 2005, grades of D-, D, and D+, are considered for transfer credit unless a specific department requires a higher grade for non-transfer students. In addition, some transfer courses with D-, D, and D+ grades may not meet prerequisite and graduation requirements for specific degree programs. A minimum C- grade is required in all transfer courses for the NC State courses that are Pass/No Pass. Courses that are considered for transfer credit must meet the same grade requirements as the NC State courses. See the Program Description section of the catalog and individual program Curriculum Worksheets for specific course grade requirements.
  • Transcripts are forwarded to the Academic Services Office and are evaluated within 30 business days.
  • After evaluation, transcripts are returned to Student Records where all applicable transfer credit(s) are posted to the student’s academic record, and a summary report of such credit is then sent to the student.

Transcript Evaluation Appeals. North Central State College has an appeals process for the use of any student who disagrees with the amount of transfer credit he/she has been given by the College. Details about this procedure and the steps involved in filing an appeal are available to students upon request in the Office of the Chief Academic Officer. (Every other state-supported college or university in Ohio is also required to have such an appeals process regarding transfer credit decisions.) If a transfer student’s appeal is denied by the institution after all appeal levels within the institution have been exhausted, the student can appeal to the state level Articulation and Transfer Appeals Review Committee. The Appeals Review Committee reviews and recommends to institutions the resolution of individual cases of appeal from transfer students who have exhausted all local appeal mechanisms concerning applicability of transfer credits at receiving institutions. (See also “Student Complaints Following Transfer Appeals at the Receiving Institution” on the Ohio Department of Higher Education  website.)

 

Transient Students

Students who wish to take one or several courses at North Central State College will find it to be an easy and worthwhile experience. In the summer, NC State is an ideal place to take care of general education credits while at home on break from your college or university.

 

Federal financial aid is not available for transient students since federal financial aid rules require that the students be degree-seeking at the institutions where attending classes. Students, who are currently enrolled at another institution and wish to take classes at NC State as a transient student to transfer back to their home institution, need to pick up a Consortium Agreement from their home institution and submit it to the NC State Financial Aid Office. The students then pay their tuition out of pocket at NC State, and the home institution processes the aid and sends any aid the students are eligible for to them.
