Transfer Policy

Community/junior college students who plan to transfer to the College of Business Administration are advised to take the courses recommended for the freshman and sophomore years as outlined in this section. The appropriate Advisor in Business Administration should be consulted to resolve questions of transferability. Upper-division 300/400-level courses taught by the College of Business Administration should not be taken at a community/junior college.

Credit for business administration courses taken at another college or university and transferred to TAMUCT to be applied to a BBA, BS, or BAAS degree in business will be awarded on the following basis:

  1. Business Administration courses that are equivalent to a 300- or 400-level course at TAMUCT will be accepted for advanced credit only if they were taken for advanced credit. Some students may petition for credit in upper-level business administration core requirements by completing a validating examination through either the College Level Examination Program or a departmental examination; such testing requires approval of the College Dean of Business Administration. If permission is granted for credit by examination, such credit must be completed before taking any classes for which the course is a prerequisite. Validation must be accomplished in the first semester of enrollment at TAMUCT.
  2. Business Administration courses that are upper level at TAMUCT, but are transferred in as lower-level courses, will be accepted for transfer as lower-level electives with no validation exam.
  3. The maximum hours that may be transferred from a community or junior college with validation and applied to a specific major in business administration (accounting, finance, CIS, management, marketing, or administrative systems) is 9 hours. Under no circumstances may more than 68 semester hours transferred from a two-year institution be counted toward a degree.
