University of Texas - Arlington


Dallas County Community College District and University of Texas at Arlington hereby enter into the following agreement governing the matriculation of Dallas County Community College District students to the University of Texas at Arlington. This contract shall commence on September 1, 2000. 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 the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA).


In order to facilitate and improve the transfer process for our mutual students, DCCCD and UTA 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 UTA. Transfer students must meet the same standards and criteria for admission to a major degree sequence as a native UTA student.

UTA and DCCCD will jointly develop Transfer Guides and a Course Equivalency Guide, utilizing both UTA and DCCCD numbers for all majors offered at UTA. By creating these guides UTA and DCCCD assure students that courses listed in these guides are freely transferable between UTA and DCCCD.

Representatives from UTA and the DCCCD will meet or make contact during August of each year to update course equivalencies, transfer guides and transfer admission information to be used the subsequent academic year.

A student transferring to UTA 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:

  • Transfer students will receive academic credit for transferable college level coursework only, completed with a grade of "C" or better. Remedial and developmental courses will not be accepted in transfer.
  • The student must have a 2.0 G.P.A. overall if transferring more than 30 hours.
  • Students must complete 30 credit hours in residence at UTA, including the last 24 hours with at least 18 hours of advanced coursework and 12 hours of advanced coursework in the major.
  • UTA will accept a maximum of 72 credit hours, plus 4 Physical Education activity credits for most programs, in transfer from the 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 President of UTA, 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 President of UTA, or their designees. Once this agreement is signed by the appropriate officials at DCCCD and UTA, 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 President of UTA, or his designee.

This agreement shall be in effect beginning September 1, 2000.
