Transfer Connections

Need help in transfer planning?    The key is to start EARLY!!

Amarillo College has a number of partnerships and pathways that can help our students transition to a university. It is important to plan carefully for a transfer because depending on the program of study and on the school accepting transfer, your options or requirements can change. Knowledge is your best tool to make sure you are staying on a solid academic path. 

Students should be aware that there are limits on the number of lower-division freshman and sophomore courses that Texas public colleges and universities will accept in transfer. In many cases, the maximum number of college-level courses accepted in transfer toward a bachelor's degree is 66, although some universities may accept slightly more in special cases. 

To ensure that you are enrolling in courses that will apply toward a Bachelor's degree, please meet with an advisor to discuss unique transfer situations.  In most cases it is very important to see an advisor at the university in which you are planning to transfer to verify what courses you need to take at AC for successful transfer.

Transfer Information


Amarillo College offers a number of programs and resources for transfer students.

Are you unsure where you want to transfer?

Once you have decided on your major, find out which universities offer your program of study. Use the links below to explore your options.

Common Course Number comparison for Texas Universitie

 

It's important to remember that public universities in Texas typically accept only up to 66 hours of transfer credit from a community college. Earning more than 66 hours of credit at the community college may result in the student having to repeat required courses at the university.

NOTICE: All public universities in Texas use a common application for admission, located at www.ApplyTexas.org

TIPS:

  • Students should work closely with their transfer institution to determine the best time to transfer.
  • You may be eligible for a $1,000 tuition rebate if you complete your bachelor's degree with as few courses outside the degree plan as possible. Find out if you qualify now by clicking this link.
    College for All Texans Tuition Rebate 
  • Most schools have transfer centers...check them out.
  • Ask your university transfer advisor about Reverse Transfer.
    • Reverse transfer is for students who have transferred from Amarillo College to a university before earning their associate’s degree. Credits completed at the university are transferred back to AC and used to satisfy the degree requirements for an associate’s degree. This is much like how credits are transferred from AC to the university, just in reverse. AC’s Registrar’s Office will evaluate the completed university course work and determine if those credits taken will fulfill requirements for an associate’s degree.
