ADMISSION & REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS
- Students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 of all transferrable credits.
- Students must have at least 45 academic transferrable credit hours OR 30 academic transferrable credit hours (preferably core required hours) with a signed TEAMSA on file. (See TEAMSA below)
- Students must meet TSI Requirement. (See TSI below)
What is TSI? – TSI is the Texas Success Initiative – It requires students to be assessed in reading, writing and mathematical skills before enrolling in a Texas public college or university. Students must be “TSI complete” before enrolling at Texas A&M University-San Antonio. Courses required for remediation will not be counted toward the minimum degree requirements at either institution.
What is TEAMSA? – Students who complete 30 hours toward an associate’s degree at an Alamo College may qualify to transfer to Texas A&M University-San Antonio for a Bachelor’s degree.
TEAMSA streamlines the transfer of credit between institutions as students complete both an associate's degree at an Alamo College campus and a bachelor's degree at Texas A&M University-San Antonio. It allows co-enrollment with Texas A&M University-San Antonio and one of the Alamo Colleges. Students who complete a minimum of 30 hours toward an associate’s degree before full transfer to Texas A&M University-San Antonio will exclude any developmental education requirement. Alamo College students may request an official transcript be sent to Texas A&M University-San Antonio using their ACES account.
- TEAMSA co-enrolled students may only receive financial aid at one campus.
- If you are a TEAMSA Participant, select Option 2 on the TEAMSA Application.
- Students must submit a Consortium Agreement to receive full eligibility of their financial aid at Texas A&M University-San Antonio.
What is a Consortium Agreement? – Two or more schools may enter into a consortium or contractual agreement so that a student can continue to receive Federal Student Aid funds while studying at a school or organization other than his or her "home" school. The "home" school is the one that will grant the student's degree or certification. For additional information visit the Consortium Agreement webpage.
