The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (Coordinating Board), with the assistance of its Undergraduate Education Advisory Committee,
designed a new 42 semester credit hour (SCH) core curriculum for all undergraduate students in Texas public higher education institutions.
The Coordinating Board approved the new core to be implemented in fall 2014. The purpose of the core curriculum is to ensure that Texas
undergraduate students enrolled in public institutions of higher education will develop the essential knowledge and skills they need in order
to be successful in college, in a career, in their communities, and in life. The core curriculum facilitates the transfer of lower-division
course credit among public colleges, universities, and health-related institutions throughout the state.
Beginning in fall 2014, all incoming Freshmen students to Texas public institutions will complete the new core curriculum requirements.
Core curriculum courses for all institutions are listed in this Core Curriculum WebCenter Search Facility.
