The University of Akron has established more than 130,000 courses equivalencies with other colleges and universities in Ohio and across the United States. As part of the University System of Ohio, the University has more than 198 Transfer Assurance Guide (TAG) approved courses which serve as a resource to students seeking to identify equivalent, or equal, TAG-approved courses at Ohio public institutions of higher education. A TAG course is unique in that it has been matched to a set of learning outcomes (identified by an Ohio articulated number code) in a specific academic subject area. Approved TAG courses carry the guarantee that the courses and their credits will transfer and apply toward the major at any of Ohio’s public institutions, provided the course was taken when the courses were determined to be equivalent. The guarantee began in Fall 2005 with the creation of TAGs for 38 majors.
