Pathways For Transfer

Transferring to another institution can often be a complicated process. Below are some general guidelines to help you select the appropriate pathway in mathematics. For specific transfer information, Brazosport College recommends that you consult a counselor.


Core Curriculum
Many students choose Brazosport College as a starting point for their educational career, where they complete the core curriculum. All students earning a baccalaureate degree in the State of Texas are required to complete all areas of the core. Math 1342, Statistics, is part the core curriculum at Brazosport College, and satisfies the core requirement in mathematics.
According to state law, if a student completes the core at any public institution in the state, including Brazosport College, they are considered “Core Complete” at ANY other public institution in the state. It does NOT matter if the core at another institution is different. Therefore, if the degree you wish to pursue only requires mathematics as part of the core curriculum, you should complete the Statistics Pathway.
The Brazosport College core curriculum can be found in the Brazosport College Catalog.
