Transfer Credits

You must submit all transcripts to the Office of Admissions. In order for dual or transfer credit to be added to your UT Austin transcript, the course must be transferable and you must have earned a C- or higher. These grades do not affect your GPA.

Use the Automated Transfer Equivalency System to determine which classes at other public institutions in Texas will directly transfer to UT Austin.

Dual Credit

Students can receive dual credit through high schools that offer courses that count for high school and college credit. Once dual credit transcripts are sent, the admissions office posts all credit to your record automatically.

Petitions and Core Transfer Credit

Coursework completed at other institutions is evaluated by the Office of Admissions to determine whether it may transferred to the university for credit.

Students whose transfer work has been evaluated in such a way that it does not automatically satisfy a core requirement that the student believes it should can submit a core petition online. If the student wishes the credit to apply to a major requirement, he or she must petition through the appropriate college or school. Contact your academic advisor if you have questions.

Taking Classes Outside of UT Austin

If you would like to complete coursework at other institutions over the summer, use the Automated Transfer Equivalency System to determine which classes at other public institutions in Texas will directly transfer to UT Austin.

To take courses at an out-of-state institution, complete a pre-evaluation form and submit it to the Office of Admissions.

Students enrolled in the School of Undergraduate Studies are not allowed to take courses at more than one institution during fall or spring semesters. For example, a UGS student is not allowed to take calculus at Austin Community College while he or she is enrolled at UT Austin during a fall or spring semester.
