Intra-System Transfer Policy

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

When undergraduate students transfer from one University of Houston System campus to another, all undergraduate semester credit hours are transferable, although they will not be automatically applied to the specific degree program to which the students have transferred. Determination of the applicability of such credit for a specific degree program is the responsibility of the particular academic unit, department, college, school, etc. into which the students transfer.

Within this overall general policy, certain limitations exist due to the distinct role and scope of the specific campuses of the University of Houston system. Upper level campuses may set a maximum number of lower division semester credit hours that they will accept for transfer. Transfer credit will not be allowed for remedial courses. Finally, all transfer policies within the University of Houston System are subject to and must conform with state policies.
