Weatherford College Core Transfer Curriculum

All public colleges and universities in Texas must accept transfer credit for successfully completed courses identified by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) as the Core Transfer Curriculum in a particular major for an associate or bachelor degree. No institution shall be required to accept in transfer more credit hours than in the granting institution’s approved Core Transfer Curriculum. In accordance with these requirements, Weatherford College has
established for its students a 42 semester credit hour core curriculum to enhance communication and critical thinking skills; to develop skills and knowledge in empirical and quantitative reasoning; to promote teamwork; to foster personal and social responsibility. Once a student has successfully completed core curriculum coursework at Weatherford College, those courses may be transferred to any other public institution of higher education and must be substituted for the receiving institution’s core curriculum. Students will receive academic credit for each of the courses transferred and may only be required to take additional core courses for the purposes of meeting the degree requirements for specific majors approved by the THECB.

Students should visit with an advisor to select courses above the core curriculum that will transfer to the senior institution to which they plan to transfer. No university shall be required to accept in transfer toward a degree, more than sixty-six (66) semester credit hours of academic credits earned by a student in a community college. Universities, however, may choose to accept additional credit hours.

In any major for which there is no coordinating board-approved transfer curriculum, no institution is required to accept in transfer more lower division course credit in the major applicable to a baccalaureate degree than the institution allows their non-transfer students in that major. A university may deny the transfer of credit in courses with a grade of “D” as applicable to a student’s field of study courses, core curriculum courses, or major if it denies credit in those same courses with a grade of “D” to its native students.
