Transfer

Colleges, Majors & Transfer Course Sheets

Selecting a major is a critical component in the transfer process. Each major has its own transfer applicant admission requirements, so make sure to review each major of interest’s prerequisites. Visit catalog.tamu.edu for the most current information, or contact the Prospective Student Center nearest you. 

With the changes to the 2014-2015 University Core Curriculum, the Degree Tracks previously used for transfer admission are no longer valid. Coursework for desired majors is available on the Transfer Course Sheets next to your intended major listed under each college below. It is to a student’s advantage to follow the guidelines and complete courses as outlined on the Transfer Course Sheets and in the catalog.

NOTES:

Bachelor of Arts degree requirements in foreign language courses may be earned through examination or class work, but they must appear on the applicant’s official college transcript.

MATH 1325 is not acceptable as the mathematics prerequisite for medical or dental school. Students planning to apply for these professional programs should complete MATH 2413.

Applicants seeking information on Professional School options should visit opsa.tamu.edu.

  1. Environmental Design Architectural Studies provides entry to the Master of Architecture program.
  2. Visit the University Studies website for additional information.
  3. Applicants seeking elementary teacher certification will complete a baccalaureate degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. There is no Secondary Teacher Education major. All students seeking secondary certification (except those preparing to teach physical education or health) will major in an academic discipline other than education (i.e., Mathematics, English, Computer Science, Biology, etc.) and take appropriate coursework for teacher certification in the College of Education & Human Development.
  4. Pre-veterinary medicine is not offered at Texas A&M. Select a major that matches your career interests regardless of whether or not you plan to enter the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program after receiving your undergraduate degree. Any major may be selected; however, some curricula more closely parallel courses that must be completed before applying to the DVM program than others.
