This is an "Articulated" degree with the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD).

Students who complete this degree with no grade below that of "C" and who meet all admissions requirements at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) will be accepted into UTD's Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering program. Students should follow this plan only if they wish to transfer to UTD in Biomedical Engineering. Students wishing to transfer to another university should not assume this entire plan will transfer.

In order to be eligible to receive this A.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering, a student must:

  1. Complete a minimum of 60 credit hours indicated in this degree plan;
  2. Earn a grade of "C" or better in English 1301 and the selected college-level mathematics course;
  3. Receive a GPA (2) of at least 2.00 ("C")
  4. Give permission to Dallas College and UTD to share transcript data in order to evaluate degree program progress and assist in degree completion requirements and reporting;
  5. Meet all Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requirements and course prerequisites; and
