Transfer Credit Resources

You must successfully complete transferable coursework to be considered for transfer admission. But how do you know if the courses you took are transferable?

Determine the credit you’ll be awarded using our Automated Transfer Equivalency (ATE) System.

The Automated Transfer Equivalency System (ATE) database contains more than 300,000 transfer credit evaluations for courses at Texas universities and community colleges. These course evaluations are the exact credit you will be awarded, because transfer credit is posted to UT student records via the ATE system.

Transferring Coursework

  • Courses with grades lower than C- do not transfer. Grades from transfer credit are excluded from a student’s internal UT Austin GPA computation.
  • Some UT Austin programs limit the transfer credit they’ll accept. All programs require completion of at least 60 semester hours in residence at UT.
  • Students can petition for re-evaluation of out-of-state transfer credit by filling out and submitting an Evaluation of Courses Form.

Credit Evaluation

All students—including currently enrolled UT students—interested in obtaining UT transfer credit for courses taken at another college or university must submit official transcripts to the Office of Admissions. Admissions evaluates transcripts to determine if coursework is transferable to UT Austin. After the initial evaluation by Admissions, academic programs determine if or how individual courses apply toward degree requirements. Evaluation of individual courses taken at out-of-state institutions is not available over the phone, in person or by email. Specific course evaluations and decisions about the transferability of individual courses are made only after an applicant has been admitted.
