One of the many resources available for transfer students is This free website allows you to compare approved course equivalencies so you can begin researching your transfer options.

If you have complete any Education coursework, another valuable resources is the Transfer Assurance Guide maintained by the Ohio Board of Regents. The TAG courses are designed to assist students in transitioning between institutions within Ohio.

Most Education courses are evaluated for transferability on an individual basis. For any Education course that is not TAG approved, you could be asked to provide a copy of the syllabus in order to determine equivalencies.
