Chemistry Transfer Pathway

Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCN)


The following table lists transfer courses leading to a concentration/major in Chemistry. It is extremely important for the student to complete two years of chemistry (general and organic), a year of calculus, and a year of physics prior to transfer to Sam Houston State University if the student intends to take junior-level chemistry courses upon arrival. If the student is planning on a minor in Biology, the student should also take BIOL 1411 and BIOL 1413.

Chemistry majors are not required to complete the 1 hour core requirement where non-majors must select from the choice of 1 hour from ECON, KINE or NGLI.


  • A maximum of 66 transfer credit hours (“C” or better excluding kinesiology) may be applied to a degree at SHSU. 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
