Transferring Credit

Transfer Equivalency Guide: Transferring from Texas Colleges and Universities

Thank you for your interest in transferring to UTA.

Transfer Academic Programs

For those entering with a completed Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree (AA or AS), there are multiple paths to choose from:

  • Major Option – earn a Bachelor’s degree in the major of your choice—transfer in your 60 credits and follow one of our many academic pathways to your degree.
  • General Option – earn a Bachelor’s degree in University Studies—offers seamless 2+2 degree completion for multiple AA and AS degrees.
  • Honors College at UTA – earn your Bachelor’s degree and participate in our Honors College when you transfer in Honors hours from your home campus. You may also be eligible to join the Tau Sigma Transfer Honor Society. More information can be found here.

For those entering with a completed Associate of Applied Science Degree (AAS):

  • Pursue the Technical Pathways Program. Students completing this option earn a Bachelor of Science in University Studies degree within the Technical Pathways Program. Tracks for this degree are designed to help you build upon the coursework you’ve completed and the skill sets you’ve already gained. Some example tracks are:
    • Management and Entrepreneurship Pathway (may include an Entrepreneurship certificate depending on upper division course selection)
    • Programming Pathway
    • Paralegal Studies Pathway
    • Health Professions Pathway

For those entering without an AA, AS, or AAS degree but with accumulated credits:

  • Our advisors will assist you in examining your credits and determining the best path to the degree of your choice. Read more about transfer advising here. A supplemental tool is our online guide for transferring credit. Don’t let your historical GPA be a barrier to transferring to UTA. Improved academic performance over time and other experiences and characteristics are all an important part of the UTA admissions process.
  • For those bringing community college credit, when you accumulate enough credits to earn an Associate’s degree, UTA will reverse transfer those credits to your community college and they will award you the degree while you progress toward your Bachelor’s degree.

Transfer Evaluation System

UTA also has a Transfer Evaluation System that includes an interactive guide for course equivalencies.


UT Arlington has some additional resources, in addition to the Texas Common Course Numbering website.
