Have you reached the point in your college career where you’re ready to move to the next level? Maybe you’re ready to transfer out of your two-year program, or your experience at another school isn’t what you expected it to be, and you want to finish your degree in a program that better suits you. We’d be honored to welcome you over to The University of Texas Permian Basin, where you can enjoy the considerable advantages of online learning as you earn a valuable online degree. Before we go any further, let’s first see if you fit into one of our transfer student categories:

  • You’ve completed at least 24 semester hours of college credit but have not yet completed a bachelor’s degree.
  • You’ve completed an associate degree and are ready to pursue a bachelor’s degree.
  • You’ve completed a bachelor’s degree and wish to pursue a second bachelor’s degree.
  • You are a degree- or non-degree seeking student or transient student.

Do any of those scenarios describe you? If so, let’s see if you meet UT Permian Basin’s transfer admission requirements.

Admission Requirements for Transfer Students

To transfer to a UT Permian Basin online program, you must:

  • Have completed a minimum of 24 semester hours at another regionally accredited college or university.
  • Have a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 (equivalent to a “C”) or higher out of a possible 4.0.
  • Be eligible to re-enroll at other college-level institutions you have attended prior to UT Permian Basin.

If you meet all of the admission requirements above, you’re most likely eligible to transfer to an online program at UT Permian Basin! But first, we’ll need a few additional things:

Application Materials

When you seek admission to one of our online programs, you must submit:

  • A $40 application fee (non-refundable).
  • Official transcripts from every college or university you have attended.
  • Verification that you have met Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requirements.

What If …

If you don’t meet certain admission requirements, you may still be admitted to the University, with some caveats:

  • If you don’t have the required GPA, you may still receive provisional admission, a status which requires you to earn at least a “C” in all of your classes during your first 12 semester hours. After that, you will be permitted to enroll for additional terms.
  • If you’re applying with credits from a non-accredited college or university, you may be admitted conditionally. For this, you must achieve and maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 during your first 30 semester hours.
