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 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the changes to the 2014-2015 University Core Curriculum, the Degree Tracks previously used for transfer admission are no longer valid.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.

Transfer Course Sheet Guidelines

  • Academic and coursework requirements vary by major and are subject to change each year.
  • Meeting the minimum requirements listed in the Transfer Course Sheets does not guarantee admission.
  • Competitive applicants will have appropriate coursework graded/completed at time of application with the highest GPA.
  • Second-choice majors are NOT considered by every college/major, and admission as a second-choice is often more competitive.

*Beginning Fall 2016, MATH 1324 will transfer as MATH 140, a core math course, with the exception of a few instances where it is still equivalent to MATH 141.  Communication, Economics, Political Science, Psychology and Telecommunication Media Studies will NOT accept MATH 140 in their degree plans and have specific messaging on their Transfer Course Sheets noting this, please see below.  The remaining Transfer Course Sheets that previously required MATH 141 in their degree plans will allow MATH 140 as a core math course.  The TAMU Transfer Course Equivalency website has this updated information and students are responsible for checking this site before enrolling in courses.
