CORE TRANSFER CURRICULUM
Total semester hours required for graduation: 60
All public colleges and universities in Texas must accept transfer credit for successfully completed courses identified by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB)as the Core Transfer Curriculum in a particular major for an associates or bachelors degree. No institution shall be required to accept in transfer more credit hours than in the granting insitution’s approved Core Transfer Curriculum. In accordance with these requirements, Weatherford College has established for its students a 44 semester credit hour core curri-culum with these objectives:
Once a student has successfully completed the 44 semester credit hour core curriculum at Weatherford College, that block of courses may be transferred to any other public institution of higher education and must be substituted for the receiving institution’s core curriculum. Students will receive academic credit for each of the courses transferred and may only be required to take additional core courses for the purposes of meeting the requirements of a large core curriculum adopted at the receiving institution and approved by the THECB.
In any major for which there is no coordinating board-approved transfer curriculum, no institution is required to accept in transfer more lower division course credit in the major applicable to a baccalaureate degree than the institution allows their non-transfer students in that major. A university may deny the transfer of credit in courses with a grade of “D” as applicable to a student’s field of study courses, core curriculum courses, or major if it denies credit in those same courses with a grade of “D” to its native students.
