General Education Transfers

Transfer applicants who have earned AA or AS degrees from institutions in the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) system will have fulfilled the general education requirement established by the faculty at UT.

Transfer of general education courses from TBR universities or colleges is guaranteed upon completion of the AA or AS degree. The requirements of general education will be complete and accepted by UT in the transfer process without loss of credit.

This policy began in the fall semester of 2009. It applies to any student who completed their AA or AS Tennessee Board of Regents degree in 2009 and entered the University of Tennessee in the fall semester of 2009 or later.

This policy does not apply to completion of an Associate of Applied Science degree.

Grades earned at other colleges and universities are used only for admission, course placement, and other academic decisions. Prior to graduating from UT Knoxville, transfer students must have completed their last 30 semester hours of credit at UT and their last 60 semester hours of credit at a four-year college or university.

Transfer students should review the detailed transfer information on major/degree requirements for their prospective UT major. For further assistance in determining these requirements, please visit Undergraduate Academic Advising.

Transfer students should review the course transfer equivalencies.
