Transfer applicants are reviewed based on the courses they have completed at another college or university and their grade point average on that coursework. Texas A&M has prepared a consolidated list of courses that are recommended to transfer students in order to have a strong foundation for entering A&M. Transfer students need to refer to this chart and also make sure that all courses transfer to Texas A&M by referring to the Transfer Course Equivalency System.
Students may apply to transfer after completing 24 hours with a minimum 2.5 GPA. Although 2.5 is the minimum to apply for transfer admission at A&M, competitive applicants in the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences will want to maintain higher grades. Below are listed the recommended courses for transferring to Texas A&M and the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences. Students who have already been taking courses at another institution and would now like to prepare to transfer may contact our office for assistance in choosing appropriate classes. Courses not listed below may not directly fit the WFSC degree plan. Appropriate coursework for desired majors, including WFSC, is available on the Transfer Course Sheets provided by the Office of Admissions. It is to a student’s advantage to follow the guidelines and complete courses as outlined on the Transfer Course Sheets and in the catalog.
Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences requires completion of BIOL 111 (BIOL 1406) and BIOL 112 (BIOL 1407) with a minimum grade of a B prior to transfer. Priority is given to students who have completed the listed Math, Physics and Chemistry requirements.
