Ready to start? This page highlights the resources you’ll need to successfully transfer to The University of Texas at San Antonio.
Transfer Applicants: are students interested pursuing a bachelor’s degree at UTSA and have earned some college credit from either a community college or university after graduating high school or earning a GED.
There are many ways to pay for college, from transfer scholarships and grants to student loans and student employment. We also know there are lots of questions! Learn about the cost of attendance and see how to make the best of your investment by continuing your education at UTSA.Explore Cost & Aid
We want to give you credit for the work you’ve done at your previous institution. Our Transfer Credit Calculator will let you estimate how many of those credits could transfer to your desired degree program at UTSA. Please note the results from the calculator are unofficial and only intended for informational purposes. All courses and credits are subject to formal review and approval. UTSA also has articulation agreements with 14 community colleges to guarantee certain courses will be applied towards your UTSA degree.

You are considered a transfer student if you are interested pursuing a bachelor’s degree at UTSA and have earned some college credit from either a community college or university after graduating high school or earning a GED.
This is a common misconception from our transfer students – there is not a minimum number of credits you need before you transfer to UTSA. However, there is a maximum from a community college: our students cannot apply more than 66 transfer credit hours to their program to UTSA as per the UTSA policy as well as the percent of courses needing to be completed at UTSA for your degree.
There is not a fee waiver for the transfer application. All students must pay the non-refundable application fee.
A WIP stands for “Work In Progress” transcript. This means your transcript reflects that you are currently enrolled in classes at the time that you submitted your application. It is perfectly fine for you to be enrolled in classes at the time that you apply, too! We will be aware of your enrollment and there is not a penalty for applying with WIPs.
You can find out which credits will transfer to UTSA using our transfer credit calculator.
Pro tip: have your most up to date transcript with you while you use the calculator, you will need to reference course numbers etc.
If you need further assistance and/or if the transfer credit calculator does not provide sufficient information, please reach out to our Transfer and Transition Student Success Office at utsa.edu/studentsuccess/transfer
