Information for Transfer Students

Transferring Credit

One of the cool things about being a transfer student is that you get to bring your credit with you! Shortly after you have been admitted to the university, you will receive an email notification directing you to your self-service page in your student center in MyMav. Your student center will provide you with an evaluation of your transfer credits so you will know exactly what credits have been accepted by the university.

When you check your student center, you will need your NetID and password. If you don’t have it memorized, check your previous application communications with UT Arlington. If you can’t find it, call the Help Desk in the Central Library at 817-272-2208. They can help you through the process of identifying and activating your NetID and password.

Keep in mind these general transfer rules of thumb:

  • UT Arlington does not accept the grade of “D” in transfer, so keep your grades up so you can receive as much credit as possible.
  • No university credit is given for vocational coursework.
  • No university credit is given for developmental coursework.
  • The University only accepts the first 10 hours of credit for repeated coursework for grade replacement.
    •  During the first 10 credit hours of repeated coursework a lower grade on a second attempt will still replace the first attempt.
    • After the first 10 hours of repeated coursework for grade replacement, grades from all course attempts will be calculated in your GPA.
  • The University does not recognize life and/or career credit.
  • Credit for some technical coursework can be given through the Interdisciplinary Studies major program.
  • While you may be core complete, there may be major course requirements and/or pre-requisites that require you to take a course that looks like a core requirement but doesn’t act like one. If this happens to you, talk to your academic advisor.
