Academic Policies and Procedures

Transfer Credit

Although UT Dallas normally accepts credit from academic courses taken at other regionally-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 a student is admitted the student's record will be articulated for all transfer work and will reflect which those credits that have been accepted by UT Dallas. An undergraduate advisor in the student's major, in consultation with the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education, will determine how the transfer credits apply to UT Dallas degree requirements. The faculty, acting through the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Education, has the ultimate responsibility for applying transfer credit to their specific major requirements. Students may request an articulation appeal through the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Education in their school.

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

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

Office of the Registrar MC 11
The University of Texas at Dallas
800 West Campbell Road - MC11
Richardson, Texas  75080-3021.

Military Training Awarded as Academic Course Credit

The University of Texas at Dallas will 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 (see address above):

  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(s) 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 a 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 Office of the Registrar will notify the students regarding any of approved credit will occur prior to registration for the following semester. All decisions are final.
