Transfer Credit Evaluation
Whether you are just thinking about transferring to Texas State or have already been admitted, you can see for yourself how course work completed at other colleges and universities will be credited.
Before You Transfer
See how your course work will transfer. The Transfer Course Equivalency System provides Texas State transfer credit equivalencies for commonly transferred courses. The information available on the system is drawn from the same course equivalency database that is used when information is posted to your official Texas State transcript.
Course transferability and equivalencies are subject to change. An official evaluation of transfer courses will be available to each student at the time of their admission to the university.
Already Admitted or Enrolled
Admitted or enrolled students who have submitted official transcripts from other colleges or universities can view evaluated course work on the Transfer Course Equivalency System to see how their credits transfer to Texas State (NetID and password required). An explanation of evaluation terms and abbreviations may be found in the Evaluated Course Work Glossary.
If you have questions about your course work evaluation, email the Office of Undergraduate Admissions or call 512.245.2364.
Evaluated Course Work Glossary
Below are explanations of the evaluation abbreviations, meant to help you better understand what courses will transfer and how they will be credited. You may also download a copy of the Evaluated Course Work Glossary.
If you're currently attending another college and looking to transfer to Texas State, your top priority should be taking core classes that you'll need to complete, regardless of your major. Keep in mind that you do not need to be core complete to transfer to Texas State.

If you plan to take more classes than just core before transferring, you may first want to visit the Undergraduate Catalog for specific degree program requirements. Transfer Planning Guides are also available for each major and are helpful in determining if a program requires any specific core class(es), especially in math and science.
In the catalog, your degree program will likely show your classes listed according to each academic year or semester of a typical four-year college career and the courses are listed in Texas State codes and numbers. To find which courses are offered at your current college and their equivalencies, use our Transfer Course Equivalency System. You should be able to find equivalencies for all of the transferable or remedial classes you have previously taken at any Texas college.
- Texas State will transfer as many of your courses/hours that are considered transferable; however, only 66 lower-level hours will be applied toward your degree plan. Additional upper-level hours from a four-year university may also be applied. You will need to take a minimum number of credit hours at Texas State in order to graduate with a Texas State degree.
- Repeat Policy — You may repeat a course one time to replace the first grade earned in that class, regardless of what that grade is. Make sure that the repeat course you take is exactly the same as the initial course, or equivalent to the initial course if the repeat is taken at a different college than the first attempt. Use our Transfer Course Equivalency System to confirm equivalencies.
- Grades of D and F are transferable. If the course is considered a transferable course, then the grade you earned in it is transferable. A minimum grade of D is required in Core Curriculum courses to satisfy core requirements.
- At least 25% of upper-division course requirements must be completed in-residence at Texas State.
