    • Dual Credit & Work in Progress: Dual credit and coursework in progress do not count toward a transfer student’s transferable credit hours. All attempted work is considered. Repeated courses are not excluded.

 

  • Freshmen Requirements: Transfer applicants who must meet freshmen requirements may submit an official high school transcript and SAT/ACT score from the testing agency. SAT or ACT test scores not required for admission, but are considered if submitted. Neither score is preferred more than the other. Submit your SAT or ACT test scores directly from the testing agency. UTSA Institutional Test Code for ACT is 4239, and the test score for SAT is 6919.
