CTAG credit is statewide; cuts time and cost of credential 

Students who have successfully mastered technical coursework in high school are eligible for advanced college credit if they continue their pathway at a Ohio college or university. Career-Technical Credit Transfer (CTAG) facilitates technical course guarantees and supports students to:

  • Take equivalent technical courses anywhere within the public educational system
  • Obtain technical credits (upon enrollment in higher education) without unnecessary duplication or institutional barriers
  • Attain their highest educational aspirations in the most efficient and effective manner as a result of clear and consistent standards

CTAG is a collaborative created to establish criteria, policies, and procedures whereby students are awarded college credit for agreed-upon technical knowledge and skills in equivalent courses/programs that are based on recognized industry standards.

The articulation and transfer initiative engages the Ohio Department of Higher Education and the Office of Career Technical Education of the Ohio Department of Education, public secondary/adult career technical education institutions and state-supported  institutions of higher education.

CTAG helps more high school and adult career-technical students to go to college and enter with college credit; technical credit saves students money and time; and Ohio business and industry will benefit from more employees with higher education and advanced skills.
