The Transfer Articulation System (TAS) provides access to a database of courses at other institutions that have been evaluated for transfer credit to Penn State. Initially, TAS was available via ISIS to University faculty and staff members. Today TAS lists over 198,000 evaluations from over 2,200 institutions. In 2003, access to TAS was made available on the Web. Now Penn State students who wish to take courses elsewhere as well as prospective transfer students and the general public can receive a transfer credit evaluation.

Created database containing 80,000 evaluations from 1,500 schools

Subjectivity in evaluating transfer credits decreased allowing for a more overall consistent process

Counselors now review each record in 1-2 minutes as opposed to 5-12 minutes
