Transferring Credit Qualifications 

One of the cool things about being a transfer student is that you get to bring your credit with you! Shortly after you've been admitted to the University, your transfer credits will be evaluated and posted to your MyMav Student Center.

We've outlined these general transfer qualifications to help you anticipate transferring your courses.

  • UTA only accepts classes where you earned a "C" or better, so keep your grades up to receive as much credit as possible. Vocational coursework is not transferable.
  • Developmental coursework is not transferable.
  • Transfer students have no option for erasing a low grade. UTA will not use "grade replacement," "grade forgiveness," "grade exclusion," or any other type of amnesty from the grades you earned. 
  • UTA does not recognize life and/or career credit.
  • While you may be core complete, there may be a major course requirement or prerequisite that require you to take a course that looks like a core requirement, but doesn't act like one. You should talk with your academic advisor to discuss these requirements.
