Admission Requirements for Transfer Students at the RRC:

Admission standards are set by the main campus. However all students will be individually screened to determine eligibility to begin upper level courses at the RRC after acceptance to the university has been confirmed.

Transfer Credit Information:

Students with 45-plus transferable hours should follow steps listed on the “More than 45 Hours” Checklist.

Students with 30-plus hours who previously attended colleges other than Austin Community College are encouraged to also follow the “More than 45 Hours” Checklist and apply for Admission early to have transcripts officially evaluated. Once the transcripts have been officially evaluated, the Texas State Advisor can review the courses in the system and advise accordingly. 

Students with fewer than 45 hours should follow the Transfer Planning Guide for the intended major at ACC, and only complete the courses listed under the ACC Course of Study.  Students planning to transfer to Texas State at the Round Rock Campus are encouraged to meet with Karl Meyer, ACC Advisor, located at the Texas State RRC One Stop Center, Room 201, or contact him at (512) 716-4001 or kmeyer@austincc.edu.

Maximum number of hours accepted: 66 (varies at the RRC; see Transfer Planning Guide for your major.

Work/Life experience based college credits:

The Occupational Education (OCED) program at Texas State prepares nontraditional students for careers through high-quality academic, professional and technical programs. This program grants credit for experiential learning such as work/life experience; credit for non-collegiate instruction; and credit by exam.

NOTE: If you are pursuing or already earned Associates in Applied Sciences; not all of those credits can be used for “admissions” purposes. However the OCED program will review the skill based credits (labeled T&V) after admission to determine if they can be utilized toward the degree. Students with Applied Associates degrees usually need to apply as Freshman/Transfers due to the limited number of transferable academic courses.

Grading:

  • D grades are accepted however, a higher grade may be a prerequisite for some courses.
  • The original grade in a repeated course is not used for GPA calculations. However, the first repeat and all subsequent repeats will be used for GPA calculations.
  • Once enrolled at Texas State, academic standing will be based on Texas State GPA only.

Approximate Cost/Range for One Academic Year:

Tuition and fees vary by semester. Please view the RRC Tuition and Fees webpage for the most current semester’s information.
