Texas Common Course Numbering System

The Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS) has been designed for the purpose of aiding students in the transfer of general academic courses between colleges and universities throughout Texas. Common courses are freshman and sophomore academic credit courses that have been identified as common by institutions that are members of the common course numbering system. The system ensures that if the student takes the courses the receiving institution designates as common, then the courses will be accepted in transfer and the credit will be treated as if the courses had actually been taken on the receiving institution’s campus.

The table below lists the courses Texas A&M University has identified as common and their TCCNS equivalents. Before using this table students should be sure that the institution they attend employs the TCCNS.

This table is revised quarterly in January, March, June, and September. The most recent version may be obtained from the Office of Admissions.

The current version of this document may be found on the Office of Admissions website.
