Transfer Work FAQs

How do I list transfer courses on my degree plan?

List them on the degree plan as transfer work and indicate from which university they are being transferred. List them exactly as they appear on the transcript from that institution. Be sure to reduce Quarter Hours to Semester Hours.

The course I want to transfer was taken in Quarter Hours. How do I convert it to Semester Hours?

One Quarter Hour equals 2/3 of a semester hour. You may round to the nearest whole number.

How are courses transferred?

Transfer work will not appear on your Texas A&M transcript until a degree plan including the transfer work has been approved by the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies. Once the degree plan with the transfer work has been approved, OGAPS will request that approved transfer courses be added to your TAMU transcript.

How do I add transfer work if my degree plan has already been approved?

By filing a petition with the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies requesting that the transfer courses be added to the degree plan.

How do I know if an institution is accredited or approved?

Verify its status with either Graduate Admissions or International Admissions.

What if I have not yet taken the transfer course, but plan to do so?

List the course on your degree plan or petition just as you would other transfer courses, but indicate the semester in which the course will be taken and the university where it will be taken.

The course I want to transfer was taken prior to the conferral of my degree, but was not applied to my degree. What do I need to do?

Contact the registrar’s office at the institution where the course was taken. A letter must be sent directly to OGAPS from the registrar’s office where the course was taken stating that the course was not applied to the degree received.

May I take a course at another institution and transfer it to TAMU during the semester I plan to graduate?

Doctoral students may not take transfer courses in their final semester because it would delay admission to candidacy. Master’s students may take a transfer course during their final semester, but should be advised that a delay in the receipt of the final official transcript for the course may mean that you will have to postpone graduation for a semester.
