The Field-of-Study Curriculum is a set of courses that will satisfy the lower-division academic requirements for a bachelorís degree in a specific academic area at a general academic teaching institution. The course credits of specific approved curricula will apply toward bachelor degree requirements, if the courses are a part of the studentís degree requirements at the senior institution.
To facilitate transfer of freshman- and sophomore-level core and field-of-study courses, a Texas Common Core Numbering System (TCCNS) exists. These lower-division courses have a TCCNS number and are listed in the Lower-Division Academic Course Guide Manual, an official publication of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Community and Technical Colleges Division.
The TCCNS Matrix provides course equivalencies between TCCN and institutions, including other community colleges.
It is important to know what courses are recognized as common at the school to which you plan to transfer. You should declare a major before attaining sophomore standing at CTC. Each Texas public community college or university will accept TCCNS courses, provided such credits are within the approved transfer curriculum of the studentís declared major field of study at the receiving institution. A change of major may result in loss of credits earned in a previous program.
