Additional Texas Lutheran University Advising Notes


Transfer Guidelines

  • A maximum of 68 hours may be transferred from community colleges to Texas Lutheran University. For students with more than 68 hours, the 68 hours that best complete the degree plan as of the first semester the student attends TLU will be transferred. No changes may be made to the choice of transferred hours after the student starts classes at TLU.
  • Only grades of “C” or better will transfer. Grades of “D” do not transfer.
  • Community college courses may not transfer into TLU as upper-division courses (300-400 level), even though TLU may have an upper-division course with exactly the same name and description. Community college courses may not be used to fulfill the 30-hour upper-division requirement for graduation at TLU. However, the course may be used as a substitute for an upper-division course with an approved substitution form signed by the chair and dean.
  • FREX 134, Exploring the Arts & Sciences, is required of all students except transfer students who have graduated from high school for at least one year and have 24 hours or more of transferable credit.
  • Only four hours of Physical Education (Kinesiology) activity will apply to degree requirements.
  • Only four hours of Ensemble Music will apply to degree requirements.

Using this Transfer Advising Guide with Texas Lutheran University


This Transfer Advising Guide represents Texas Lutheran University’s degree plan and is subject to change at the university’s discretion. It is intended for advising purposes only so students know exactly which courses they can take at any of the colleges in the Alamo Colleges District and have the courses count towards degree requirements when they transfer to Texas Lutheran University. It is highly recommended that students meet with their assigned advisor to review all graduation and transfer requirements listed in the Transfer Advising Guide.

The ultimate goal is to provide students with accurate information for transfer pathways while minimizing loss of credits in transfer. Students are encouraged to review Texas Lutheran University’s requirements frequently.

Course numbers in italics are Texas Lutheran’s course numbers.

This Transfer Advising Guide is based upon Texas Lutheran’s 2017-2018 Catalog and is subject to change.

The Alamo Colleges District Advising


Students are encouraged to consult with an academic advisor about courses and other educational concerns if they plan to pursue a two-year degree program, transfer to another college or university, or simply take a few selected courses. In addition to course and degree requirements, policies and procedures are subject to change; stay informed by meeting with an academic advisor regularly.

Many students who plan to transfer to a university are advised to fulfill the lower-division requirements for the university. With appropriate planning, your Alamo Colleges District team can help make the transfer experience a seamless process. It is the responsibility of all students to ensure that they take courses at the Alamo Colleges District that will be accepted by the senior institutions they wish to attend.
