Lower Division Requirements at the Alamo Colleges District for an AA degree
The courses in this section meet the requirements for an Associate of Arts degree. The Graduation section in any catalog of the colleges in the Alamo Colleges District lists additional Degree/Certificate Requirements.
Applicable Transfer Credit Hours
This Transfer Advising Guide provides 70 college-level hours*, of which 66 will transfer and apply, as EDUC 1300 will transfer, but will NOT be applicable towards the Texas State University baccalaureate degree in Dance (Single Field Teacher Certification in Dance, Grades, 8-12).
*Be advised that Semesters I and II offer a course option between 2 SCH to 3 SCH. The total number of attempted hours for this Transfer Advising Guide reflects 70 SCH, but the true total of hours provided is 69 SCH.
Note: Texas State University accepts a maximum of 66 college-level hours in transfer towards a baccalaureate degree.
Note: Texas State University Teacher Certification plans require a 2.75 GPA for Admittance to Teacher Certification.
Note: Texas State University requires DAN 1160/DAN 1180/DAN 1190/DAN 2161/DAN 2181/DAN 2191 more than once (except DAN 1160, but the additional SCH will apply towards electives). Since ACD only offers 2 SCH course versions, the 2 SCH courses will satisfy two of the TxST course requirements. (Example: ACD DANC 1241 will satisfy TxST DAN 1180 twice.)
Note: For the Alamo Colleges District this transfer advising guide is core complete and degree complete.
*** denotes Milestone Course(s).
A milestone course is a course that is critical for success in this program as determined by the Faculty of the Alamo Colleges District.
Special College Admission Requirements for Texas State University for Dance
Admission to the B.F.A. major in Dance is based on an audition in either the fall or spring semester prior to the year of admittance. Students in the program are always on probation, with their work and progress continually evaluated. There is a formal review at the end of the sophomore year that determines whether each student may advance to the upper-level training. Transfer students will be reviewed at the end of their first long semester. Students will be expected to maintain appropriate artistic and academic standards at the discretion of the Dance faculty.
