1 All courses except RHE309K and M 301 are Core Courses at UT Austin, which means they are required to be accepted for transfer at any public institution in Texas. RHE 309K generally transfers elsewhere in Texas as TCCN 1302 and M 301 transfers as TCCN 1314, to see the course equivalency of RHE 309K or M 301 at your institution, go to www.tccns.org and select compare schools, then choose University of Texas at Austin and your institution in the drop down menus. If you have difficulty transferring RHE309k or M 301, please contact OnRamps Director Dr. Julie Schell.
2 ELA course is intended as a senior-level course but could be offered at the junior level. However, the course was not designed to align with the AP Language Composition course commonly taken by high school juniors.
3 OnRamps Statistics course is not designed to align with AP Statistics.
A student’s grade from an OnRamps course (not the high school course) counts in the student’s cumulative GPA at The University of Texas at Austin. To determine how an OnRamps letter grade or credit applies at other institutions, students should contact that institution's registrar's office.
Transferability and Applicability
A student needs to request a transcript from the University Registrar and have it sent to their chosen institution. Each institution evaluates a student’s transfer credits based on its own policies. Colleges and universities have different requirements that vary by school, college, and institution. In order to determine how OnRamps courses will transfer and if they will apply to your major or degree program, you must contact the individual institution you plan to attend.
The registrar charges $20 for each transcript requested.
While parents may communicate with the high school instructor about students’ high school grades, the university Instructor of Record may not communicate with parents regarding students’ college grades.
That is because under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), rights belong to the parents with respect to high school records, but they belong to the student with respect to the post-secondary records, regardless of a student's age.
Our university Instructors of Record will make every attempt to communicate with and through the student, as this is an important maturation point for college students.
For information about how to order a UT Austin transcript, visit the Office of the Registrar's website.
IMPORTANT: OnRamps students CANNOT order transcripts through the Registrar’s online transcript order system. OnRamps students CAN order transcripts using the other options listed on the Registrar’s website.
Enrollment Certification - Non-Attendance Verification
Non-Attendance Verification: Due to the large number of requests, The University of Texas at Austin does not provide individualized or personal letters to certify non-attendance. However, students may direct third party inquirers to the Verify degree & attendance service available from the Office of the Registrar website to verify enrollment or degree of any University of Texas at Austin alumnus, attendee, or student by clicking here. Enter the student's last name and first name.
If you need additional assistance please contact Ms. Emily Wade.
