Eligibility

What is the minimum criteria to apply?

Consult the Requirements page for more details.

I have not completed the math and/or science requirements for admission.  Am I eligible to apply?

No.  Students are required to have completed the math and science requirements to be eligible to apply.

I have not completed the 24 hours in-residence requirement for admission.  Can I appeal this requirement?

No.  Students are required to have completed a minimum of 24 hours in-residence to be eligible to apply.

I have not completed the mathematics and/or science requirements in-residence.  Am I eligible to apply?

Yes, students are eligible to apply if they have not completed the in-residence math and science requirements.  However, it is important to remember that this is a competitive application process.  Preference in the review process will be given to students who either completed the math and science requirements at UT, or to those who completed additional math and science coursework that meets degree requirements for his/her intended major (see acceptable course substitutions for more information).  It is important to demonstrate success in your intended field of study.  Students who have not completed the math or science coursework (in-residence or at another institution) will not be competitive in the application process.

Should I repeat application course requirements that were previously completed at another institution or claimed through AP/IB?

 

No.  The College of Natural Sciences does not wish to see students repeating credits previously earned through other institutions or claimed credit.  Instead, you are encouraged to take other required courses for the major/degree you are pursuing.  You can view the acceptable course substitution lists for additional information.

I have completed four semesters or 60 credit hours at UT.  Am I eligible to apply?

No.  University regulations stipulate that students must not have completed four semesters or 60 hours in-residence at UT in order to apply for internal transfer.

How do I appeal the four semesters or 60 hours in-residence rule?

Consult the How to Apply page for detailed information on the appeal process.

I am a UT degree holder and was readmitted to another college, but would like to pursue a second degree in CNS.  Am I required to wait for the stated application period?

Yes.  The College of Natural Sciences will only accept internal transfer students who apply in the spring for the following fall semester.  Degree holders will fall into the same applicant pool as current undergraduate students, thus must realize this is a competitive process for internal transfer.  Additionally, UT degree holders will have completed four semesters or 60 hours in-residence, thus will be required to appeal to be eligible for internal transfer.
