Transfer Credit Resources

Students taking courses on an Exchange, Affiliate Provider, Independent Experiences for Transfer Credit, or Virtual program, will bring back transfer credit to Texas A&M. Transfer credit is processed as pass/fail and not calculated into Texas A&M GPA.

Part of the application process includes the Pre-Approval Form for Transfer Credit. Students indicate the course(s) they intend to take while abroad and work with academic advisors to obtain approval on how, if at all, the course(s) would transfer to Texas A&M and fit a student’s degree plan.


To get an idea of how courses from Affiliate Provider and Exchange programs have transferred back to previous students’ degree plans, check out our list of previously approved transfer credit courses.

Note: The document is for reference only. It serves as a guide to show what previous academic advisors have approved a course to transfer back to a student’s degree plan. All courses still need to be approved by the appropriate parties as indicated on the Pre-Approval Form for Transfer Credit based off that student’s specific degree plan.
