The Texas Common Course Numbering System is a voluntary, co-operative effort among Texas community colleges and universities to facilitate transfer of freshman- and sophomore-level general academic coursework.
The TCCNS provides a shared, uniform set of course designations for students and their advisors to use in determining both course equivalency and degree applicability of transfer credit on a statewide basis. When students transfer between two participating TCCNS institutions, a course taken at the sending institution transfers as the course carrying, or cross-referenced with, the same TCCNS designation at the receiving institution.
The TCCNS serves as pre-approval of the listed courses for the corresponding general education requirements. Students will not be required to submit the Pre-Approval of Transfer Credit Form for listed equivalencies. Equivalencies, nonetheless, are subject to change should the transfer institutions alter course titles and/or content.
To check the equivalency of courses not listed in these tables, send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the inquiry, include the name of the transfer institution as well as the full course number and title.
