A maximum of 66 credit hours (excluding kinesiology) may be transferred from a community college to Sam Houston State University. Students should carefully select courses to complete the associate degree while minimizing the number of hours that might exceed the 66 hour cap for transfer credit. Applications for admission to SHSU may be obtained on line at https://www.applytexas.org/ or by calling Undergraduate Admissions at (936) 294-1828. Extensive information is also available on the SHSU web site at http://www.shsu.edu/. Evaluations are based on each institutions catalogs. The respective catalogs selected for graduation are the final word if a discrepancy appears between this listing and a catalog.

  1. Other acceptable courses are COSC 1401, BCIS 1301, ITSC 1401, BCIS 1305.
  2. AGRI2399, ARTS 1301, ARTS 1311, ARTS 1316, ARTS 1303, DANC 2303, DANC 1301, MUSI 1308, MUSI 1301, MUSI 1310, MUSI 1306, DRAM 1330, DRAM 1351, DRAM 1310, DRAM 1341, DRAM 2336

All parties to this agreement are accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
The BBA degree requires a minimum of 120 hours with 42 advanced hours (3000 and 4000 level courses).  Additional hours are sometimes added with double majors and/or minors.  However, the BBA does not require a minor.  All students are required to complete at least six writing enhanced courses accumulating a minimum, of 18 semester hours towards degree completion.  Six of the hours must come from the student’s major field of study.  SHSU students MUST complete ENGL1301 (ENG 164), ENGL1302 (ENG 165), Core Composite Area 2 (MATH requirement), and one-half of Composite Area 3 (4 hours of laboratory science) prior to enrollment in any upper-level class.  Prior to enrolling in core classes, students are encouraged to review specific degree requirements for their major.  Selection of major specified core courses may reduce the total number of hours required for graduation.

The Core Curriculum at Sam Houston State University contains 42 semester credit hours, encompassing six component areas. Each component area has a minimum credit-hour requirement and a set of specific courses that may be used to satisfy the requirement. The chart below details the Sam Houston State University courses and their Texas Common Course Number (TCCN) equivalents that comprise SHSU's core curriculum.  Course requirements to meet the university foreign language component of the Bachelor of Arts degree have been included for convenience. 

Many departments require specific courses from core component areas to meet degree requirements. Selecting departmentally specified core courses to complete university core requirements reduces the total number of hours required to graduate.
