TCCNS Updates

In an effort to make transferring credit for students easier, several University of Houston course names and numbers are changing to align with the TCCNS. These changes go into effect starting in Fall 2021.

Below is a chart outlining all course number changes, organized alphabetically by current UH course number. For more information related to these course changes please see  the FAQ page.

The Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS) is a cooperative effort among Texas community colleges and universities to facilitate transfer of freshman- and sophomore-level general academic courses.
