University of Texas-Arlington Transfer Criteria

The University of Texas-Arlington is a 10-Star Transfer Partner with Eastfield College. UTA meets or exceeds each of the criteria important to a successful transfer experience.

  • Your associate degree from one of the seven colleges of DCCCD qualifies you for automatic admission as “core complete.”
  • Even without an associate degree, 60 DCCCD college credit hours will be accepted. Be sure to work with an academic advisor to ensure that you take courses that apply toward your bachelor’s degree.
  • The catalog in effect at the time you enter a DCCCD college will be honored by UTA, ensuring that the course pattern you follow will carry through from DCCCD to UTA.
  • Courses you take on campus, online, through dual credit enrollment or early college high school will be honored.
  • You do not need to enroll in any additional general education courses beyond 60 credit hours.
  • If you are planning to transfer to a program such as engineering or nursing where enrollment is limited, UTA makes the selection criteria readily available to you and provides equal access to all students to programs with limited enrollment.
  • Specific information about DCCCD transfer students is available on the UTA website.
  • Student transfer stats are available to you so that you can see how DCCCD students fare upon transferring to UTA. 
  • A full 98% of DCCCD students who transfer to UTA do as well or better in their junior and senior years as those students who start UTA as a freshman.
  • A full 95% of DCCCD transfer students who enroll in full-time studies complete their bachelor’s degree in four years.
  • Any problems you may have in the transfer process will be addressed in a review/appeal process.
