Transfer Students

Eagle

UNT has a national reputation as a "transfer-friendly" university. One of the reasons is the BAAS program. While you are required to take at least 30 hours from UNT, you can transfer up to 84 qualifying credit hours from community colleges, technical institutions, and/or other universities and apply it toward your BAAS degree.

Of course, the BAAS program at UNT accepts more traditional common core credits earned at community colleges (American history, political science, English, etc.) or other universities. But what makes the BAAS program so valuable are the types of credit that will transfer. Certain courses are designed to provide students with immediately marketable career skills and are offered only at community colleges and technical institutions. They are sometimes referred to as "workforce," "occupational," "technical," or "vocational" courses. Unlike the degree programs at most universities, the BAAS program at UNT will accept these workforce credits and apply them toward your bachelor’s degree. That can save you a lot of time and money.
