Transfer Students

In-State Transfer Student Information

Students transferring from any Texas public institution must provide official transcripts showing their current TSI status.  Transfer students meeting a TSI requirement must have their status documented on an official transcript (Transferring grades in certain classes does not guarantee that the student has met the TSI requirement). Please note that developmental courses do not transfer into PVAMU. Transfer students who have not met all of the TSI requirements will be placed in the PVAMU developmental sequence based upon test scores provided until all TSI requirements are met.

Out-of-State Transfer Student Information

Students transferring from out-of-state are still liable for meeting the TSI testing requirement before enrollment can occur. Out-of-state transfer students can meet TSI requirements by transferring in a grade of C or better in the following courses (or institutional equivalent courses):
