Transfer Students

Admissions Eligibility

All transfer students should have a GPA of 3.25 or greater. They are also required to submit the transfer student online application. A student must be transferring in with 12 or more hours of recognized college credit to qualify as a transfer student. 

Honors Credit for Transfers 

If a transfer student has participated in an honors program previously, the Texas State Honors College will accept two transfer honors classes (up to 7 hours) for any student graduating in the Honors College and up to three transfer honors credits (up to 10 hours) for the minor in Honors Studies. Students who wish to receive transfer Honors credits should meet with an Honors College advisor to review their transcript and plan their classes at Texas State. You may also refer to our Transfer Planning Guide below.

Automatic Admission for Transfer Honors Students

Transfer students who are already a member of an honors program at a college listed below and who have a 3.25 GPA or greater can request automatic admission.  To qualify for automatic admission, the student should complete the the transfer student online application and ask their current honors program director to email to verify they are members in good standing.  If your program is not listed, please contact us for more information at
