Transfer Credit Policy

Students transferring to TCU must present a record of all transfer work for evaluation to the Office of Admission for approval by the appropriate academic dean prior to their enrollment in the University. Transfer coursework not presented prior to enrollment may not be counted toward a degree. TCU only reviews coursework from regionally accredited institutions.

After enrolling at TCU

  1. All students must receive prior written approval from the appropriate academic dean if they wish to take courses at another regionally accredited institution and have those courses count toward a degree at TCU. Coursework taken without prior approval may not be applied to a degree.
  2. To request approval to take courses at another institution, a student should log in to, click the Academic Records tile, scroll down to Transfer Credit and choose Transfer Credit Request to fill out and submit your request.
  3. Once a student is enrolled at TCU, no more than 4 courses up to 16 total semester hours, except those earned in an approved study abroad program, may be transferred from other schools.

Transcripts for approved transfer credit should be sent to the Registrar’s Office, TCU Box 297004, Fort Worth, TX 76129.
