Transfer Credit

Students in classroom

Course Credit

If you have taken college coursework outside of UT Dallas, you can search the Transfer Equivalencies by the institution you attended to determine how your courses could potentially transfer into UT Dallas. Generally, college coursework requires a completion grade of C (2.0 on a 4.0 point scale) or higher to be considered for transfer credit.

Transfer Plans provide an outline of the recommended coursework offered at Texas community colleges for each UT Dallas degree program.

Non-academic coursework such as vocational, developmental or remedial studies will not be considered for credit. For full policies, see the undergraduate catalog.

Credit By Exam

Credit can be awarded after admission for exams taken through Advanced Placement (AP), the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) or the International Baccalaureate Program (IB).

UT Dallas course equivalency charts for exam scores are included below, and your academic advisor can assist you in petitioning for credit after admission to UT Dallas.

As credit is awarded after admission, credit by exam is not considered as part of an applicant’s transferable GPA or transfer hours for admissions. Official scores must be sent directly to UT Dallas from the testing agency and only scores from exams taken within the past 10 years will be considered for credit. AP scores included in the College Board format on an official high school transcript can also be considered for credit.

College Credit for Military Service

Military veterans who enroll at UT Dallas and meet certain requirements are eligible to receive undergraduate college credit for the time they spent in the service. Eligible veterans who enroll at the University receive college credit for up to twelve semester credit hours of lower division elective coursework. Additional details regarding military credit awarded after admission are available in the undergraduate catalog.

If you have additional questions regarding your transfer coursework, please contact the Office of Admission and Enrollment.
