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. 

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. Applicants who begin a set of courses which have a two-semester sequence are encouraged to complete both courses in the sequence before planning to transfer to Texas A&M.

Transfer Course Sheet Guidelines

  • Meeting the minimum requirements listed in the Transfer Course Sheets does NOT guarantee admission.
  • Transfer Course Sheets are meant to be used as a guide in addition to the Undergraduate Catalog and College/Department Academic Advisors.
  • Academic and coursework requirements vary by major and are subject to change each year.
  • 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.

The Transfer Course Sheets are supported in a partnership between the Office of Admissions and the Academic Colleges at Texas A&M University are subject to change during the year.  Students are reminded to review the information provided on the Transfer Courses Sheets regularly in the event of an update

* 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. Economics, will NOT accept MATH 140 in their degree plans and has provided specific messaging on their Transfer Course Sheet 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.

** Students who are applying for Spring 2018 and or Summer/Fall 2018 admission should review the 2017-18 Transfer Course Sheets.

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.

Field of Study Curricula
A Field of Study Curriculum is a set of courses that will satisfy lower-division requirements for a baccalaureate degree in a specific academic area at a general academic teaching institution. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board publishes information about Board-approved Field of Study Curricula. Texas A&M University complies with requirements outlined in 19 Texas Administrative Code §4.32 regarding transfer of course credit for completed or partially-completed Field of Study Curricula. Per 19 Texas Administrative Code §4.32, following the receipt of credit, "the student may be required to satisfy the remaining course requirements in the field of study curriculum of the receiving institution, or to complete additional requirements in the receiving institution's program, as long as those requirements do not duplicate course content already completed through the field of study curriculum."
