Common Courses


Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS)


The Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS) has been adopted voluntarily by many public community colleges and universities in Texas. Common Courses are freshman and sophomore academic credit courses that have been identified as common by institutions that are members of the common course numbering system. UH-Victoria is a member institution of the TCCNS. The system is designed to assist students in the transfer from one Texas college or university to another.

The numbering system consists of a set of four-character abbreviations for academic disciplines and four-digit course numbers. The first digit of the number reflects the academic level of the course (1 for freshman, 2 for sophomore) and the second digit reflects the semester-credit-hour value of the course. The third and fourth digits represent sequence.

The common courses listed below are required for the various degrees at UH-Victoria. These course numbers will be used in the evaluation of lower division courses transferred from other institutions. A student who has completed the core curriculum at another Texas public institution will have satisfied the core curriculum requirements for UHV.

Students who have not completed the core at another Texas public institution are subject to the following guidelines. Any transferable lower division course, which is not equivalent to a course listed in this roster, will transfer as a non-advanced elective. The dean of the student’s plan will make the decision concerning the application of transfer credit to the degree program with the advice and consent of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs or his/her designate. Courses will transfer on the same level and with the corresponding number of hours as earned at another institution.
