Coursework Equivalents

Equivalents for University Core Curriculum

We recommend external transfer applicants complete some, but not all of the university Core Curriculum prior to entering UT Austin. Why not all? A balanced semester load includes two or three studio-based or Art History courses, paired with one or two university Core Curriculum courses. If you have completed all of the Core Curriculum prior to entering UT Austin, you may be left with only studio-based or Art History courses each semester, which is not advisable in most cases.

To learn how courses taken at other Texas colleges will transfer to UT Austin, consult the Office of Admissions’ Automated Transfer Equivalency System.

Equivalents for AAH Core Courses

Transfer applicants (external and internal) are strongly encouraged to pursue and transfer credits for courses equivalent to the department’s AAH Core requirements.
