Transfer FAQs

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 submit your application either through GoApplyTexas or through the CommonApp.

Please note that GoApplyTexas is utilizing a new website, so if
you used it previously, you may need to create new account.

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.
