Dallas County Community College District and Texas State University hereby enter into the following agreement governing the matriculation of Dallas County Community College District students to Texas State University. This contract shall commence on Dec. 2006 and shall continue until such time as either or both institutions wish to terminate it. This agreement sets forth the terms and conditions of students’ transfer from Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) (including all of the following DCCCD campuses: Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Eastfield, El Centro, Mountain View, North Lake, and Richland) to Texas State University (TSU).


In order to facilitate and improve the transfer process for our mutual students, DCCCD and TSU hereby enter into the following agreement:

DCCCD students who follow the recommended program of study – the common core and transfer curriculum, and who meet all other admissions requirements shall be eligible for admission to TSU. Transfer students must meet the same standards and criteria for admission to a major degree sequence as a native TSU student.

TSU and DCCCD will jointly develop Transfer Guides, Transfer Admission, and Course Equivalency Guides. By creating these guides TSU and DCCCD assure students that courses listed in these guides are freely transferable between TSU and DCCCD.

A student transferring to TSU under this agreement shall have acceptance of academic credit hours earned at DCCCD, with the following condition that the curricular and general conditions be met:

  1. Transfer students will receive academic credit for transferable college level courses only completed with a grade of "C" or better. Remedial and developmental courses will not be accepted in transfer.
  2. The student must have a cumulative G.P.A. of 2.0 for admission to TSU. (Some majors may require a higher G.P.A. for admission.)
  3. Students must earn 30 of the last 36 hours in residence at TSU.
  4. TSU shall accept a maximum of 66 credit hours will be accepted in transfer from DCCCD.

Note: Remedial/developmental or technical/vocational courses will not be included for transfer in this General Articulation Agreement from DCCCD colleges unless specified by individual colleges in a Program-to-Program Articulation Agreement.


This agreement shall be reviewed on an annual basis or any time program changes are to be made by either institution. Any program changes will be identified and incorporated into subsequent agreements. The DCCCD Chancellor and the TSU President, or their designees must approve amendments to this agreement. Any other modifications to this agreement may be made following written notice from the DCCCD Chancellor and the TSU President, or their designees. Once this agreement is signed by the appropriate officials at DCCCD and TSU, each is free to publicize this arrangement in a manner consistent with the agreement. This articulation agreement shall remain in effect until one or both institutions deem it necessary to terminate it.

By signing each party recognizes the commitment to exchange only the most current and accurate information. This agreement may be terminated by either party by giving written notice of said party’s intention to the Chancellor of the DCCCD or his designee and the TSU President, or his designee.

This agreement shall be in effect beginning Dec. 2006.
