Requirements and restrictions for the College of Natural Sciences
In addition to submitting a complete application for admission, transfer applicants to the College of Natural Sciences (including those to Computer Science and Pharmacy) should also review the following information regarding special application requirements and admission restrictions.
Admission to Entry-level Majors
All Natural Sciences students are admitted to entry-level majors for the field they wish to study. After completing some of the courses required for the degree, each student selects the major and the option he or she plans to pursue.
Transfer applicants to the College of Natural Sciences are expected to be prepared to enroll in mathematics courses beyond M408C, Calculus I. Refer to the online resources about transferable coursework for details about which courses are transferable.
Applicants who meet the requirement by the application deadline will receive priority consideration. Applicants with additional math and science credentials also receive priority consideration.
UT Austin teaches calculus in a two-semester sequence, M408C and M408D. If you submit transferable coursework from a college or university that also teaches calculus in two courses, then you can demonstrate math readiness by completing or having in progress an equivalent one-semester course. If, however, the college or university from which you submit transferable coursework teaches calculus in a three-semester sequence, you must complete the first two semesters of the sequence to demonstrate math readiness. Refer to the transfer equivalency guides for details about how the courses you are taking or plan to take will transfer.
