Transfer

Important Note about Transferring Courses: Most Universities will only accept 66 credit hours* of degree-applicable college-level credits towards your Bachelor's degree.

Planning to Transfer?

It is never too early to start transfer planning. If you are thinking about transferring, there are things you can do right now to ensure a smooth transition:

  • Research transfer colleges/universities and their requirements.
  • Visit colleges/universities; most have campus visit days throughout the semester.
  • Meet with your academic advisor to plan your coursework for your selected transfer institution.

Transfer Agreements

Transfer articulation agreements, also known as Memorandum of Understanding (MOU’s), allow students to take their first and second year of coursework, leading to a baccalaureate degree at St. Philip’s College, and transfer credits earned to a participating four-year college or university and complete the remaining upper-division coursework required for the Bachelor's Degree.

Transfer Center professionals will provide you with the information necessary to transfer into St. Philip’s College seamlessly.

Transfer Advising Guides

Transfer Advising Guides were created to guide students on the courses they can take before the transfer. Please see the Advising Guides by University specific to your program to gain insight on course recommendations, program requirements, and guidance on when we recommend you transfer.

Military Transfer Admissions

Transfer work from military education is accepted based on the American Council on Education Guide. Students must present an official copy of the Army/American Council on Education Registry Transcript System or the Sailor/Marine American Council on Education Registry Transcript. An official transcript from the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) fulfills the transcript requirement.  All transcripts and questions should be directed to Enrollment Services/Admissions and Records Office.

Reverse Transfer Degree

Although it is highly recommended that you complete your associate degree, there are times that transferring prior to degree completion maybe your plan. Students who transfer to a Texas public college or university prior to graduation have an opportunity to complete requirements to earn an associate degree awarded by one of the colleges in the Alamo Colleges District. For students who transfer to most Texas universities, this is an automated system following consent on the ApplyTexas Admission Application. Students may also request a reverse transfer degree audit at any time by submitting a university transcript and visiting the college's Enrollment Services/Admissions and Records office.

Transfer Transcript Evaluation & Credit Policy

Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended must be forwarded to the respective Alamo College at the time of admission. Transcripts may not be faxed.  Questions regarding course equivalences should be directed to the Enrollment Services/Admissions and Records Office.

*Students should verify these hours with the Institution(s) they wish to transfer to.

Make an appointment with your assigned Certified Advisor to declare your Intent to Transfer, and discuss your options to transfer; it’s NEVER TOO SOON!
