Transfer Course Equivalency

The transfer course equivalency system provides Texas State transfer credit equivalencies for commonly transferred courses. The information that you find here is drawn from the same course equivalency database that is used when information is posted to your official Texas State transcript.

Course transferability and equivalents are subject to change. An official evaluation of transfer courses will be provided to each student at the time of their admission to the university.

You can access our online Transfer Course Equivalency System here.

Note: If a course you are looking for is not listed, this is because the course has not yet been evaluated or because it will not transfer to Texas State University.  You may contact our office if you have questions.

Transfer Course Equivalency Summary

Below are explanations of the evaluation symbols, meant to help you better understand what transfers and how. You may also download a copy of the explanation summary here.

Course Number Direct Equivalents

Courses which have exact Texas State equivalents are assigned a four-digit number. Courses shown as direct equivalents may or may not be applied toward your degree.  To determine the applicability of any course you must contact the Dean's Office of your major and obtain a degree outline.


ELNA stands for elective credit non-advanced. ELADV stands for elective credit advanced. An elective designation indicates that the course is transferrable, but Texas State does not offer an exact equivalent course. ELNA courses may be used for any general lower-division elective which is not course or discipline specific; ELADV may be used for similar upper-division requirements.  Some ELNA or ELADV courses may fulfill core curriculum requirements. Other ELNA or ELADV courses may meet major or minor requirements.


VOCED stands for vocational education courses. This coursework does not transfer and is not computed in the GPA for admission purposes. VOCED courses do not appear on the Equivalency Guides. If you are unable to find a course you are looking for, then it is probably VOCED.


ACT indicates Physical Fitness and Wellness activity credit. These are transferable for admission and degree purposes.


Stands for non-transferable courses. No credit is accepted for admission or degree purposes for non-transferable courses.


The grade earned at the transferring institution is the grade Texas State uses (pluses and minuses are not calculated). A grade of “D” or “F” does transfer for admission purposes but may not be accepted by the student’s major department. Courses evaluated as non-transferable and vocational education (VE) are not computed. Non-punitive grades such as W or P are disregarded, and grades of WF and I are calculated as F.
