A current listing of academic advising centers can be found at www.utsa.edu/advise/advisors.html.
  • Refer to the official source of information on specific courses within the UTSA requirements for this degree plan from the UTSA Undergraduate Catalog or visit the web site at www.utsa.edu.
  • Information on Gateway Courses can be found at http://www.utsa.edu/registrar/students/gateway.html.
  • Pay close attention to course sequencing and availability at UTSA as it will affect the time it takes to complete the degree program.

Using this Transfer Advising Guide with UTSA


This Transfer Advising Guide represents UTSA’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 UTSA. It is highly recommended that students meet with their assigned academic 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 UTSA’s requirements frequently.

Course numbers in italics are UTSA’s course numbers.

This Transfer Advising Guide is based upon The University of Texas at San Antonio’s 2020-2022 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.
