Proud educational partners of TSTC

We have partnered with some of Texas’ best educational institutions to help you make a smooth transition. Take a look and see if your coursework transfers.

Bellevue University

Bellevue University prefers that transfer students obtain an Associate’s Degree, or approximately 60 credit hours, prior to transfer.  All applicants not meeting these standards will be referred to TSTC for additional coursework whenever possible.  Both institutions will work together to mutually support the needs of their students, and the respective partner institutions. 

This agreement is a general articulation agreement, allowing a smooth transition for students transferring between institutions and maximizes allowable transfer of credit.
