Transfer Pathways Information & Resources

Transfer Information

Articulation Agreements
Articulation agreements are written agreements between two and four-year institutions that describe partnership to facilitate the transfer process. This can include, but is not limited to: transferability or associate degree programs, exchange of information, recruitment/admissions processes and support services, development of 2 + 2 plans, core curricula equivalents, transfer guides for specific majors and/or course equivalency tables.

2 + 2 Degree Plans and Transfer Guides
Degree plans and/or guides are available for most of the major Texas colleges and universities. This makes it easier for the student to determine what courses will transfer to a particular institution in the desired major. Joint admissions agreements and 2+2 degree plans are available with a number of institutions.

Meet with a University Representative

How Will Meeting with University Representatives Help Me?

Your personal interaction with university representatives may include:

  • Exposure to colleges or universities you might not have been aware of or initially considered.
  • Gather information and ask specific questions about the college or university.
  • Present your transcripts to get a tentative idea about your admission eligibility.
  • Allows you to put a “name to a face”; in other words, you have a specific person (admissions counselor) with whom to make contact with at the college or university.

Texas Common Course Numbering System

Students can use this friendly website to compare SWTJC course transferability to other Texas Public Universities and some Private Universities. Just simply select SWTJC and the institution you plan to transfer to for course equivalencies.

The Texas Common Course Numbering System is a voluntary, cooperative effort among Texas community colleges and universities to facilitate the transfer of freshman and sophomore-level general academic coursework. TCCNS provides a shared, uniform set of course designations for students and their advisors to use in determining both course equivalency and degree applicability of transfer credit on a statewide basis. When students transfer between two participating TCCNS institutions, a course taken at the sending institution transfers as the course carrying the same TCCNS designation at the receiving institution.
