Selecting a Program of Study to Transfer

You may be entering college with a clear idea of what program of study you will choose and which senior institution you plan to attend. But, if you are like many students, you may not know where you will transfer or in what discipline you may major.

If you are applying for financial aid please be aware that federal regulations require that you must be enrolled in an eligible program of study in order to receive aid. To select an eligible degree or certificate program, please log on to eConnect and visit FA Program Selection. Please use care in selecting your program. This selection will affect the information your academic adviser will use to help you build your schedule and track the progress toward your degree.

If you are undecided about a major at the university, you are encouraged to take courses in the core curriculum as these will transfer to all Texas public universities. During the first semester, you should investigate your interests. By the second or third semester, you should begin to develop a clear sense of which senior institution you will attend and the requirements for your chosen program of study. Working closely with a counselor or advisor, and using current information from four-year institutions, you should follow the Associate in Arts or the Associate in Sciences Degree plan because they incorporate the core curriculum. The counseling and advising personnel at the college can help you develop a program of study plan for almost any major. Listed below are some of the four-year majors you can begin in the college:
