The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) requires all public colleges and universities to accept transfer of credit for successfully completed courses as applicable to an associate or baccalaureate degree in the same manner as credit awarded to non-transfer students in that degree program.
Institutions are not required to accept in transfer more credit hours in the major area of a degree program than the number set out in any applicable Board-approved Field of Study Curriculum for that program. In any degree program for which there is no Board-approved Field of Study Curriculum, institutions are not required to accept in transfer more lower-division course credit in the major applicable to a baccalaureate degree than the institution allows their non-transfer students in that major. An institution of higher education may deny the transfer of credit in courses with a grade of "D" as applicable to the student's field of study curriculum courses, core curriculum courses, or major. No university shall be required to accept in transfer or toward a degree program, more than sixty-six (66) semester credit hours of lower-division academic credit. Universities, however, may choose to accept additional credit hours.
