A transfer student is one who has attended another college or university since graduating from high school. The applicant must have achieved at least a 2.5 GPA on a minimum of 24 hours of graded, transferable coursework.
To be considered official:
Transcript must have an original signature of a school official, an original school seal or be mailed directly from the school in a sealed envelope.
Mailed material should be sent to the Office of Admissions and Records, Texas A&M University at Galveston, P.O. Box 1675, Galveston, Texas 77553-1675.
Applicants seeking admission to the license-option curricula (see Texas A&M Maritime Academy for application and physical) who have attended another maritime academy or college must provide a letter to the Superintendent of the Texas A&M Maritime Academy from the Superintendent of the other academy or college verifying that the student is eligible to return to that institution.
On the basis of the credentials submitted, credit will be given for work completed satisfactorily at another properly accredited college or university as long as the work is equivalent in character and extent to similar work at Texas A&M University at Galveston or Texas A&M University. See the section of the online Catalog entitled "Transfer of Credits" for additional information. Students who have attended Texas community colleges can match up their course credits using the Texas Common Course Numbering System, which is also in the online Catalog. Please consult the Texas A&M University Transfer Course Equivalency page to search for more specific information.
