All Texas public colleges and universities must accept transfer of academic courses that are substantially equivalent to courses that are listed in the current edition of Community College General Academic Course Guide Manual and which are applicable to an associate or baccalaureate degree in the same manner as credit awarded to non-transfer students in the same major. Certain rules and conditions regarding minimum grade standards, number of credits accepted for transfer, age of credit being transferred, etc., must be met before a transfer dispute can be initiated.
Navarro College students who have transfer course credit denied at another institution of higher education in Texas may present written notice of denial of such credit to the Dean of Arts, Sciences and Humanities within 15 calendar days of receipt of the denial. The Dean of Arts, Sciences, and Humanities will identify courses that are applicable to transfer dispute resolution and will work with the student and the institution that denied the credit to resolve the dispute in accordance with regulations specified in the Transfer Dispute Resolution Guidelines and using form CB-TDR 2/92 supplied by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. If the dispute is resolved, the Transfer Dispute Resolution form will be forwarded to the Commissioner of Higher Education to indicate resolution of the dispute.
If the transfer dispute is not resolved to the satisfaction of the student or the institution where credit was denied within 45 days after the date the student received written notice of denial, the dean of Arts, Sciences, and Humanities will notify the Commissioner of Higher Education and request a ruling on the dispute.
