Associate in College/University Transfer Degree (Archived)

Only students who plan to transfer to a private or out-of-state college or university may earn an Associate in College/University Transfer through an individually-negotiated degree plan that incorporates those elements of the Associate in Arts or Associate in Sciences Degree that fall within the student's transfer plan. Students must have completed a minimum of 61 credit hours; earned a grade of "C" or better in English 1301, the selected college level math course, and speech (if required); a grade point average of at least "C" (2.00) based upon GPA (2); and have met all TSI standards (if students are not TSI exempt) to receive this degree. These 61 hours may be earned at any college of the DCCCD and must include:

  • History 1301 and 1302 (6 credit hours)
  • Government 2301 and 2302 (6 credit hours)
  • English 1301 (3 credit hours)
  • A college level math course numbered 1300 or above (3 credit hours)
  • Either Speech 1311 or 1315 (3 credit hours)
  • 3 credit hours to be selected from Arts 1301, 1303, 1304; Dance 2303; Drama 1310, 2366; Humanities 1301; or Music 1306, 1308, 1309

The remaining hours will be comprised of courses equivalent to those designated by the student's selected private or out-of-state transfer institution as being applicable to the baccalaureate degree being sought. In no case will course prerequisites be waived. Students who qualify for an Associate in Arts or the Associate in Sciences degree will be granted that degree rather than the Associate in College/University Transfer degree. Students who qualify for the Associate in Arts or the Associate in Sciences degree are not eligible for the Associate in College/University Transfer degree.

Students who wish to transfer to another Texas public college or university should follow the Associate in Arts / Associate in Sciences degree plans because those degree patterns includes the 48 credit hour core requirements. Such students are not eligible to apply for an Associate in College/University Transfer degree.
