Every department and program in the College of Geosciences welcomes transfer students as well as current students wishing to change majors! For a variety of great reasons, many students opt for the transfer path to Texas A&M’s College of Geosciences. Many other students transfer into the College of Geosciences from other universities, from the Texas A&M General Studies program or from other colleges at Texas A&M. Prospective transfer students can apply to any of the majors we offer; therefore, it is important to understand how transfer applicants are reviewed for admission
The best place to start that process for both transfer students and major changers is to review the Transfer Course Sheets available through the Office of Admissions website. If you have any questions along the way, please do not hesitate to contact the department/program advisor or director of recruitment.
