Transferring to a new school requires a lot of planning and decision making.  Some commonly asked questions:  how to get started, when to transfer, how long will it take to graduate, how many credits will transfer, how much will it cost, and is there anyone I can talk to?  We encourage you to thoroughly spend time on the TAMU Transfer Admissions site.  

To help you get started, here are some concrete steps to follow:
  • Research your degree options. (What do you want to study?)  Study Colleges, Majors and Transfer Course Sheets. 
  • Gather the information you need to apply. (Prepare to transfer.)
  • Attend a Transfer Information Session.  (You can register online.)
  • Learn about the Transfer Program for Admission (PTA) and other grants, work-study, loans, and  transfer scholarship opportunities. 
  • Submit your application through ApplyTexas or The Coalition. Only one application per student. The choice of application has no bearing on the admission decision.
  • View the college website to explore major options. 
  • Prospective and current transfer students can meet one-on-one with a Transfer Peer Mentor in our Zoom Room Monday - Friday.   To chat, please email ( to schedule a time for both parties to log in.
