Texas Common Course Numbering System


A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H | I | J | K | L | M | N | O | P | Q | R | S | T | U | V | W | X | Y | Z  


The Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS) is a cooperative effort among Texas community colleges and universities to facilitate transfer of freshman- and sophomore-level general academic courses.

The TCCNS provides a shared, uniform set of course designations for students and their advisors to use in determining both course equivalency and degree applicability of transfer credit on a statewide basis. When students transfer between two participating TCCNS institutions, a course taken at the sending institution transfers as the course carrying, or cross-referenced with the same TCCNS designation at the receiving institution.

For additional information about the TCCNS, consult the TCCNS Matrix Online, www.tccns.org/ccn/. This Web site contains a list of participating TCCNS institutions, the TCCNS taxonomy, the TCCNS history, and the TCCNS board members. The site also contains the master list of the common courses offered in Texas. The site is organized by institution and by TCCNS designation.

Notes:

  • Some degrees require specific core courses. See the appropriate department section of the catalog for complete information on degree requirements.
  • Students who currently attend UH should refer to their departmental advisor BEFORE taking courses at another college.
  • A minimum of 15 college-level (nondevelopmental or remedial) hours are required to transfer to UH.
  • Texas law states that a core course at any Texas state funded college or university will transfer as “core” to any other Texas state funded college or university.
  • Core Complete Status will be granted to students with an official transcript from a Texas state funded college or university stating that the core was completed at that school.
  • If you are planning on getting an Associate Degree, please see your counselor to get a degree plan.
  • The courses listed above reflect the core as set by the University of Houston.
