The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) is committed to aligning pathways to promote efficient time to degree through transfer initiatives aimed at reducing excess semester credits and maximizing credits earned toward degrees and certificates at institutions of higher education. Additional information regarding the Transfer of Credit Rules can be found at Resolution of Transfer Disputes for Lower-Division Courses. The following tools are available to help streamline and simplify the transfer process.
Programs of study work to align college and career readiness standards and career and technical education standards with the knowledge, skills, and abilities students are expected to demonstrate. Programs of study incorporate multiple entry and exit points, which include industry-recognized certifications, Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees, and credit transfer agreements between community colleges. All courses in the program of study curricula must be adopted as published unless otherwise noted on the curriculum page.
