The State of Texas helps make it easier to transfer. If you complete all your core curriculum classes at a community college, this core curriculum will substitute for the core curriculum at any public college, university and health science center in Texas. That means you don’t have to take it twice! Make sure you also check out the TCCNS website to find out course equivalencies for freshman and sophomore level coursework at both community colleges and universities. Talk with your advisor on which classes to take now while you can!
The “Tuning Texas” project, led by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, can help you transfer from the community college to the university. “Tuning” is faculty-led process that is designed to create a shared understanding of the subject-specific knowledge and transferable skills that you must demonstrate upon completion of a degree program.
The “Fine-Tuning” (or course alignment) process involves identifying a set of first and second year classes for a given discipline area, up to the level of a certificate or an associate’s degree. By agreeing on what you need to know, community colleges and universities develop voluntary transfer compacts and articulation agreements to help you take the right courses and learn the information you need for university classes.
