UT Transfer Credit

TTU General Education Credit for Courses Transferred from the UT System (UT-Knoxville, UT-Chattanooga, and UT-Martin)

  1. Students who have completed all General Education requirements on a UT-system campus will be considered to have completed all General Education Requirements at TTU, with two exceptions:
    1. Any of these students (except those majoring in Engineering) who have not completed two semesters of college-level U.S. History will, by state law, be required to complete that requirement before graduation from TTU.
    2. These students must take any TTU General Education courses that are required for progression in their major programs.
  2. Students who have not completed all General Education requirements on a UT-system campus, but who have taken one or more courses in the General Education program there, will be given TTU General Education credit as follows:
    1. Courses and General Education categories that are clearly equivalent* to their TTU counterparts will be treated by Records as TTU courses and categories, and given the appropriate credit.
    2. Courses that are clearly equivalent* to TTU General Education courses, but whose General Education categories are not matched at TTU, will be assigned appropriate TTU categories by Records, after consultation with the TTU General Education Committee chairperson, and given the appropriate credit.
    3. Courses that are not clearly equivalent* to TTU General Education courses, but which fulfill General Education requirements on the UT campus, will be assigned the appropriate TTU category by Records, after consultation with the TTU General Education Committee chairperson, and given the appropriate credit.
  3. Courses that are not taken for General Education credit on a UT-system campus can be given TTU General Education credit only through use of the established "Undergraduate Course Substitution Form."
