PROGRAMS OF STUDY

The Texas Legislature (Senate Bill 148) has required all state college and universities to adopt a core curriculum. If the student successfully completes the entire core curriculum at Galveston College, and then transfers to a Texas public four-year university all courses in Galveston College’s core curriculum will transfer and the student will receive full academic credit for the courses in the core curriculum. The student will not be required to take additional core curriculum courses at the transfer institution unless the receiving institution has a larger core curriculum.
