Texas Voluntary Transfer Compacts

Description

The Voluntary Mechanical Engineering Transfer Compact has been expanded to include additional disciplines of engineering. It is now part of the Texas Voluntary Transfer Compacts for Engineering, which, along with the Voluntary Transfer Compacts for Biology and Chemistry, are voluntary agreements among institutions of higher education within the State of Texas. Their purpose is to foster enhanced transfer processes for students pursuing bachelor’s degrees in civil, electrical, industrial, or mechanical engineering, and to increase the number and preparedness of students matriculating from a two-year engineering pre-engineering program (PMENG) at community colleges into a baccalaureate engineering program at four-year universities. The intention of these transfer compacts is not to change the curriculum of a four-year institution. The intention of these agreements is to provide guidance to students with respect to what courses offer the best mechanism for obtaining a bachelor's degree in one of these disciplines of engineering.

You can view or download the most recent Transfer Compact agreement below. You can also view the course descriptions of transfer courses as they appear in the ACGM. (Explanatory Memorandum)
