Transfer Equivalency Guides
Transfer Equivalency Guides are available for each program offered at Tarleton State University. These are designed for students attending ANY two-year public institution in the State of Texas. The TEGs enable students to choose courses that will work toward his/her degree at TSU while attending a two-year institution.
In 1999, the State of Texas implemented a common core for state-assisted institutions. All Tarleton degree programs are comprised of the same core with each degree program having special provisions. These provisions are noted on each Transfer Equivalency Guide.
If you have any questions regarding transfer of courses, please send an email to the Office of Transfer Services.
