Transfer Credit Policy

Students transferring to TCU must present a record of all transfer work for evaluation to the Office of Admission for approval by the appropriate academic dean prior to their enrollment in the University. Transfer coursework not presented prior to enrollment may not be counted toward a degree. TCU only reviews coursework from regionally accredited institutions. Course Transferability: https://admissions.tcu.edu/apply/course-transferability/

After enrolling at TCU:

  1. All students must receive prior written approval of the appropriate academic dean if they wish to take courses at another regionally accredited institution and have those courses count toward a degree at TCU. Coursework taken without prior approval may not be applied to a degree.
  2. To request approval to take courses at another institution online, a student should log in to my.tcu.edu and click on Student Center. Click here for full documentation.
  3. Once a student is enrolled at TCU, no more than four classes (maximum of 16 hours), except those earned in an approved study abroad program, may be transferred from other schools. No transfer credit will be awarded for courses in which a grade lower than "C-" was earned.
  4. Colleges and departments may impose additional restrictions. See the appropriate college and department descriptions.
  5. The total of all course credit earned at an institution other than TCU (transfer credit or credit earned through a Study Abroad/Away Semester program) or credit earned by virtue of credit by examination or similar structures may not exceed 75% of the total number of credit hours required for a degree.

Transcripts for approved transfer credit should be sent to the Office of the Registrar, TCU Box 297004, Fort Worth, TX  76129.

If a student wishes to deliver his/her transcript in person, the transcript must be in a sealed and signed envelop from the institution.

Transcripts may be sent electronically from another institution by sending them to transfer.work@tcu.edu.
