EDUC 1300 transfers, but does it count?

One of the issues raised by counselors at SAC is the issue of transferability of the EDUC 1300 core course. Will EDUC 1300 count towards the receiving institution’s degree plan?

Not necessarily.

Students get to transfer the courses for credit but ultimately, the student is going to be required to complete whatever doesn’t match up on the receiving institution’s core if the institution chooses to make them. The students could have completed a receiving institution’s requirements via our previous listing of humanities courses, but that choice was replaced by Chancellor Leslie’s mandated addition of EDUC 1300 to the core.

From THECB core rules:$ext.TacPage?sl=R&app=9&p_dir=&p_rloc=&p_tloc=&p_ploc=&pg=1&p_tac=&ti=19&pt=1&ch=4&rl=28

 (e) Transfer of Credit–Core Curriculum Not Completed. Except as specified in subsection (f) of this section, a student who transfers from one institution of higher education to another without completing the core curriculum of the sending institution shall receive academic credit within the core curriculum of the receiving institution for each of the courses that the student has successfully completed in the core curriculum of the sending institution. Following receipt of credit for these courses, the student may be required to satisfy the remaining course requirements in the core curriculum of the receiving institution.

(f) Satisfaction of Foundational Component Areas. Each student must meet the number of semester credit hours in each foundational component area; however, an institution receiving a student in transfer is not required to apply to the fulfillment of a foundational component area requirement semester credit hours beyond the number of semester credit hours specified in a foundational component area.

The fallout? Students who transfer will spend more of their time and money to satisfy a receiving institution’s core course requirements thanks to EDUC 1300.
