*These courses will meet the requirement but will not count toward upper-division credit.

Admission of transfer students is determined on the evaluation of college transcripts, (high school transcripts if fewer than 26 semester or 39 quarter hours of college work have been completed), essays, a personal recommendation and passage of CBEST (passing scores are set by TSPC); scores must be submitted as a prerequisite for admission.

Notes

In addition to the departmental requirements listed above, students must also complete coursework for university admission, general education requirements, and BA/BS requirements. Meet with a PCC Academic Advisor to develop an effective transfer plan that will meet your individual needs.

PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
