Galveston College will accept credits from accredited colleges and universities if a passing grade of C or better has been earned (developmental courses are not transferrable).

Transfer students must be eligible for readmission to the institution in which they were last enrolled (normally defined as being in 'good standing' ex: GPA of 2.0 or better on a 4.0 scale) and must meet the academic requirement of Galveston College.  Students not in good standing may be accepted on 'academic transfer probation' until the successful completion of their first semester at the college.  See the Director of Admissions/Registrar for additional information.
