Academic Policies and Procedures

Transfer Credit

Although UTD normally accepts credit from academic courses taken at other accredited institutions in which a grade of C (2.00 on a 4.00 scale) or higher has been earned, specific course and degree requirements must be met in order for these courses to be included in the student’s degree plan.

The Office of Enrollment Services evaluates an applicant's completed file to determine which credits earned at another college or university will transfer to UT Dallas. Once admitted the student's record will be articulated for all transfer work and reflect which credits have been accepted by UT Dallas.

Students may not transfer to UTD more than six of the final thirty (30) hours required for their degree.

To ensure that credit earned elsewhere will be accepted, continuing UTD students who wish to take courses elsewhere must complete an 'Off Campus Transfer Work Approval Form' in their advising office prior to registering for the course(s). Upon completion of approved courses an official transcript must be sent electronically or by mail to:

The Office of the Registrar - MC11
The University of Texas at Dallas
PO Box 830688
Richardson, Texas 75083-0688

Military Training Awarded as Academic Course Credit

The University of Texas at Dallas shall consider whether to award lower-division (1000 or 2000 level) academic course credit toward a degree to admitted students when a student has completed and provided all of the following documentation to the Registrar's Office:

  1. an official military record presented to the institution by the student that describes the substance of the training completed by the student and verifies the student's successful completion of that training,
  2. a detailed description of the course of instruction,
  3. all required texts and authors,
  4. any method of evaluation and,
  5. the course syllabus or training manuals.

All documentation must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar by Census Day (12th class day in the long semesters) of the first semester admitted. All requests for academic credit will be reviewed by the appropriate discipline using established university transfer credit policies. Notification to the student by the Registrar of approved credit will occur prior to registration for the following semester. All decisions are final.
