*A student may not receive credit in the Core for both PHIL 2303 and PSYC 1349 (formerly required in the Core).

Students transferring to UT Tyler who are core complete from a Texas public college or university are core complete at UT Tyler. Official documentation of core complete must be provided. However, because many majors require specific lower division courses as prerequisites, a student who transfers core complete may still have lower division preparatory work to complete.

Core curriculum and field of study requirements are normally completed at the freshmen/sophomore level. All courses used to complete the core curriculum requirements at UT Tyler must be completed with a grade of "C" or better. Please check with your advisor before registering for core curriculum courses to ensure that you are registered for the correct classes. (Additional acceptable core courses may be added; check the web version of the catalog for the most current list.)
