*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.
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.

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.

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.
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 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:
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:
