Transfer Admission Requirements

We are glad you want to transfer to Angelo State University for your college experience. Please read the admission requirements below and feel free to contact your admissions counselor if you need further information about any of the items listed.

Students with 18 or more transferable college-level hours from a regionally accredited college or university:

  • Minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA on all transferable college work

Students with fewer than 18 transferable college-level hours:

Transfer Application Process

To be eligible for admission to ASU, prospective transfer students must submit:

  • Application for Admission via Apply Texas
  • $35 non-refundable application fee
  • Official transcripts of all college or university work.* You can apply for admission before we have received official college transcripts. Have transcripts sent to Angelo State University at:

    Office of Admissions

Students with fewer than 18 transferable college level hours should submit:

  • The items listed above
  • Official high school transcript
  • ACT (composite) or SAT (combined critical reading and math) scores

*All transcripts become the property of Angelo State University once submitted, and cannot be returned to the applicant. It is the student’s choice to submit, at the time of application, international college/university transcripts for admission purposes and transfer credit determination. However, once ASU personnel evaluate transfer credit, the student no longer has the option to eliminate those credits from his/her record.

Transfer Quick Facts

  • Developmental, technical and vocational courses are non-transferable and are not calculated for admission purposes.
  • When a course has been repeated, the last grade stands.
  • A maximum of 66 credit hours from accredited two-year colleges may be used toward ASU degree plans.
  • Associate degrees do not transfer to ASU, only the transferable credits.
  • A minimum of 30 semester credit hours must be taken in residence, including 24 semester credit hours of advanced work, to receive a bachelor’s degree from ASU.
  • ASU does not have published deadlines for admissions. It is to your advantage to plan ahead and complete your admission file in a timely manner to have adequate time for advising and registration.

 

Evaluation of Transfer Credits

A student must be approved for admission before the evaluation process can begin. Once admission has been granted, the Office of Admissions will begin the evaluation of transfer credit process.

Transfer Credit Policies

Transfer of Credit from Other Colleges and Universities

The Office of Admissions determines which courses taken at another institution may be accepted for credit at Angelo State. Transcripts evaluations are based on course content as described in an institution’s catalog, and are conducted in consultation with ASU academic departments to determine the maximum number of credit hours that may be transferred. While all credit hours presented on the sending institution’s transcripts will be evaluated and equivalent college-level courses posted to the student’s academic record, a maximum of 66 semester credit hours from two-year institutions may be applied toward ASU degree requirements. Please allow the Office of Admissions anywhere from three days to two weeks for evaluation. The time frame is dependent on the volume of transcripts received.

The cumulative grade point average (GPA) from all transferable coursework completed is used for admission purposes. When you enroll at Angelo State, only courses taken and grades received at ASU are used in calculating your GPA. You will receive credit hours for transferable courses, but the grades will not transfer.

Applicants must submit official records from all accredited institutions attended. Official transcripts can be sent directly to the Office of Admissions or brought to our office in a sealed envelope. The Office of Admissions will evaluate for transfer credit all college-level, non-vocational/technical courses completed at regionally accredited colleges and universities.

Texas Common Course Numbering System

The Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS) has been designed to aid students in the transfer of general academic courses between Texas public colleges and universities throughout the state. The system ensures students that courses designated as common will be accepted for transfer, and the credit will be treated as if the courses had actually been taken on the receiving institution’s campus. Angelo State courses identified as common will have the Common Course Number listed after the forward slash. For example, COMM 2301/SPCH 1315 means that the ASU course COMM 2301 is considered the Texas Common Course SPCH 1315.

Completion of Core Requirements at Another Texas Public Institution

In accordance with the rules mandated by the Texas Legislature concerning the transfer of core curriculum:

“If a student successfully completes the 42-semester-credit-hour core curriculum at an institution of higher education, that block of courses may be transferred to any other institution of higher education and must be substituted for the receiving institution’s core curriculum. A student shall receive academic credit for each of the courses transferred and may not be required to take additional core curriculum courses at the receiving institution unless the board has approved a larger core curriculum at that institution.”

For more information, view this list of ASU’s Core Requirements.

Evaluation of Transfer Credits from other Colleges and Universities

Evaluation of course credit earned at other institutions does not guarantee approval of the credit for use toward ASU degree requirements. Only the academic dean of the college offering the program in which a student is enrolled has authority for determining which courses will be applied toward any specific program. The only exception to this rule is that no transferred course completed with a grade lower than C may be applied to fulfill course requirements in majors, minors or specializations.

Students must meet with the academic advisors of the ASU college in which they plan to enroll to discuss that college’s policies on transfer credit for degree purposes. Credit hours will be applied to degree programs and majors when courses are deemed equivalent to the Angelo State courses that satisfy various program requirements of the college in which the student is seeking a degree.

The following ASU guidelines apply to the transfer of college credit:

  • Non-vocational/technical, college-level courses completed at regionally accredited institutions will normally be accepted for transfer. No transferred course completed with a grade lower than C may be applied to fulfill course requirements in majors, minors or specializations. Courses completed with codes indicating no grade or credit earned will not be transferred. Grades from all transferable courses, including D, F and WF, will be used for admission purposes, but will not be calculated into the student’s cumulative GPA.
  • Remedial courses will not be accepted for transfer, and the credit hours will not be reflected on the student’s academic record at Angelo State.
  • Credit by examination will be accepted when the student provides documentation of appropriate test scores on an original score report from the national testing organization, or an official high school transcript. Credit is awarded by the Registrar’s Office according to Angelo State University’s credit by examination guidelines.
  • Credit granted for non-traditional educational experiences by community colleges or other universities will not be accepted for transfer. These include courses taken at non-degree granting institutions, life or work experience, and work completed at specialized proprietary schools.
  • Credit for specialized support courses, such as math, science and English intended for use in an occupational program, will not be transferred.
  • Credit hours taken at a junior or community college may not be transferred as upper-division work, even when the Texas Common Course Numbering System designation indicates similar course content.
  • When a course has been repeated at another institution, only the most recent course and grade will be transferred and posted to the student’s academic record, unless the course is designated in the institution’s catalog as “may be repeated for credit.”
  • Angelo State will not transfer credit for any college course documented only on a high school transcript.

Educational Experience in the Military

Credit may be given for formal service school courses completed in the military after the Office of Admissions evaluates official documents. The student’s academic dean decides if credit awarded for such courses will be applied toward requirements for a bachelor’s degree. Correspondence is sent to veteran/active duty military students explaining House Bill 269, which reads:

An institution of higher education shall award to an undergraduate student who is admitted to the institution, including a student who is readmitted under Section 51.9242, course credit for all physical education courses required by the institution for an undergraduate degree and for additional semester credit hours, not to exceed 12, that may be applied to satisfy any elective course requirements for the student’s degree program for courses outside the student’s major or minor if the student:

  1. Graduated from a public or private high school accredited by a generally recognized accrediting organization or from a high school operated by the United States Department of Defense; and
  2. Is an honorably discharged former member of the armed forces of the United States who completed at least two years of service in the armed forces or was discharged because of a disability.
    • This section does not prohibit an institution of higher education from awarding additional course credit for a student’s military service as the institution considers appropriate.
    • An institution of higher education may adopt rules requiring reasonable proof from a student of the fact and duration of the student’s military service and of the student’s military discharge status.
