Transfer students must submit official transcripts from all previously attended college-level institutions, regardless of whether or not transfer credit is assigned or desired as a condition of admission;
- The student’s transfer course work is identified as a bona fide college-level course and must have been earned at a regionally accredited college-level institution, correspond with current Texas State Technical College Harlingen courses required in the student’s program of study, and have been assigned a grade of “C” or better from the originating institution. No more than seventy-five percent of the total credit hours of the required course work may be applied from transfer credit.
- The Office of Admissions and Records will use the Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS) and the Workforce Education Course Manual (WECM) to perform transfer of credits for courses offered by regionally accredited state institutions.
- Degree or Certificate-seeking students will request transfer credit evaluation from any out of state regionally accredited institutions by providing their department chair or designee transcript(s) containing the courses to be evaluated. If the original transcript is in a foreign language, the student must also provide the Office of Admission and Records a certified translation and a copy to the department chair or designee.
Texas State Technical College maintains an open admissions policy, but admission to the college does not guarantee admission to all programs. Admission to some TSTC programs have specific requirements. Information about the programs are available at the College Information Office located in the Student Services Building.
