Texas Common Course Numbering System(TCCNS)

The Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS) has been designed for the purpose of aiding students in the transfer of general academic courses between colleges and universities throughout 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 table below lists the courses UHV has identified as common and their TCCNS equivalents.  Before using this table students should be sure that the institution they attend employs the TCCNS.  UHV course equivalencies are updated periodically and are added to the school guides listed on the TCCNS website.

Students wishing to transfer a course that it not listed in the table below should obtain approval from the department of their intended major prior to taking the course.  The student’s academic dean or his/her designate determines applicability of the credit to a degree program.  Courses will transfer on the same level and with the corresponding number of hours as earned at another institution.

For additional information about the TCCNS, consult the TCCNS Matrix Online,  This website 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.
