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.
Students can also get help by emailing your questions to email@example.com or text message with Google Voice number 806-340-0047. Virtual assistance available upon request.

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.
