Transfer to a University

Official Transfer Degree Maps

Universities that have entered into an articulation agreement with Lone Star College may also agree to transfer degree maps in different degree programs. These maps provide students with the courses required during their first two years at Lone Star College and the courses required at the university. These courses have been approved by the university for transfer into the designated degree program. Following these transfer degree maps will ensure the student is on the correct path to earning their bachelor’s degree, allowing them to save time and money.

Step 1:  Meet with an Advisor to Choose the Right Degree Plan

If you plan to transfer from LSC to complete a four-year degree, email an advisor or counselor at the campus you plan to enroll to discuss your transfer options.  They can assist with identifying courses that 1) are equivalent to college courses at your “home” college, 2) will transfer to your "home" college, and 3) fulfill common Core Curriculum or other degree requirements. The campus advising email address can be found on the advising website. 


Step 2: Research Colleges & Universities

It is never too early to start researching the colleges and universities that you would like to transfer to. It will be important for you to find answers to the following types of questions:

  • What school is right for me?
  • Do I want to attend a small or large college?
  • Which schools offer my major?
  • What types of financial aid are available to me?
  • Where will I live? Will I be required to live on or off campus?
  • Does this school offer services to assist me in finding a job?

Step 3: Complete the Admissions Application on Time

It is suggested that students submit their admissions and financial aid applications to their college or university of choice as early as possible. Every institution has different deadlines, so be sure to look up the specific deadlines for your top choices and give yourself plenty of time to apply. Most universities prefer electronic transcripts as this helps them process your admissions decision and transfer credit in a more expedient fashion.
