What is Considered Transferable Credit?

Transferable credit is college-level academic credit completed at a regionally accredited institution. Credits considered developmental, remedial, technical, or vocational will not transfer for admission purposes. Students wishing to utilize technical or vocational courses should consult an advisor.

Credit completed at a non-regionally accredited institution may be reviewed for articulation at the student’s request. Credit must be considered academic and the instructor is required to hold a minimum of 18 graduate credits in the course discipline. The student will be required to submit the following information:

  • Documentation from the institution stating the instructor of the course as well as their curriculum vitae/educational background.
  • Contact information of who provided the above documentation.
  • Any additional documentation requested by Transfer Services.

Documentation may be delivered via the following methods:

  • Emailed to transfer@tarleton.edu
  • Mailed to Transfer Services Box T-0030 Stephenville, TX 76402
  • Delivered in person to any campus.

If you are a previous Tarleton student but didn't attend for a long semester (spring or fall) and didn't attend any other institution since leaving, you are considered a readmit student.
