The Office of Undergraduate Admissions evaluates all post-secondary course work, including that which was earned in the military. Upon receipt, your official post-secondary transcripts will be evaluated to determine transfer credit for any courses for which an equivalent course is available at Texas State. We do not award credit for vocational, technical or graduate-level work.
Students enrolled at Texas State prior to Fall 2009 with 1 full year of active duty service will receive 4 hours of PFW (Physical Fitness Wellness) credits.
Students enrolled at Texas State Fall 2009 or after with 2 years of active duty will receive 2 hours of PFW (Physical Fitness Wellness) credits and 12 hours military elective credit (MIL). The 12 hours may be used toward free electives, as approved by an academic advisor and do not count toward excessive hours.
Hours are awarded as credit (CR) only and apply to transfer and cumulative hours, but do not affect GPA.
Credit for 4 hours of PFW (Physical Fitness Wellness) will be listed at the top of the transcript. These hours may be used toward admission but count as credit (CR) only and do not affect GPA. All other courses will be evaluated as VOCED (Vocational Educational) credit and are not used for admission purposes.
Joints Services Transcripts are not used for admission purposes.
After the Office of Undergraduate Admissions has performed its official evaluation, it forwards their recommendations onto the Advising Center of the college to which you have been accepted. The academic advisor will determine which credits may be applied to the student's degree. Course approvals are then returned to Undergraduate Admissions where the courses are added to the student's Texas State transcript.
It is the student's responsibility to obtain and submit the proper forms to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by the appropriate priority date. Submissions should be sent to:
