Baylor University Articulation Agreement


Dallas County Community College District and Baylor University hereby enter into the following agreement governing the matriculation of Dallas County Community College District students to Baylor University. This contract shall commence on March 2001. And shall continue until such time as either or both institutions wish to terminate it. This agreement sets forth the terms and conditions of students’ transfer from Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) (including all of the following DCCCD campuses: Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Eastfield, El Centro, Mountain View, North Lake, and Richland) to Baylor University (BAYU).


In order to facilitate and improve the transfer process for our mutual students, DCCCD and BAYU hereby enter into the following agreement:

DCCCD students who follow the recommended program of study – the common core and transfer curriculum, and who meet all other admissions requirements shall be eligible for admission to BAYU. Transfer students must meet the same standards and criteria for admission to a major degree sequence as a native BAYU student.

BAYU and DCCCD will jointly develop Transfer Guides, Transfer Admission, and Course Equivalency Guides, utilizing both BAYU and DCCCD numbers for all majors offered at BAYU. By creating these guides BAYU and DCCCD assure students that courses listed in these guides are freely transferable between BAYU and DCCCD.

Representatives from BAYU and the DCCCD will meet or make contact during August of each year to update course equivalencies, transfer guides and transfer admission information to be used the subsequent academic year.

Note: Remedial/developmental or technical/vocational courses will not be included for transfer in this General Articulation Agreement from DCCCD colleges unless specified by individual colleges in a Program-to-Program Articulation Agreement.

A student transferring to BAYU under this agreement shall have acceptance of academic credit hours earned at DCCCD, with the following condition that the curricular and general conditions be met:

  1. Transfer students will receive academic credit for transferable college level courses only completed with a grade of "C" or better.
  2. The student must have a cumulative G.P.A. of 2.50 for admission to BAYU. Students transferring to BAYU with less than 30 semester hours must also meet freshman admissions requirements (graduation within the upper half of high school class and acceptable scores on the SAT or ACT tests.)
  3. Students must complete 60 hours in residence at Baylor to receive a degree from BAYU.
  4. BAYU shall accept a maximum of 70 credit hours in transfer from DCCC.


This agreement shall be reviewed on an annual basis or any time program changes are to be made by either institution. Any program changes will be identified and incorporated into subsequent agreements. The DCCCD Chancellor and the BAYU President, or their designees must approve amendments to this agreement. Any other modifications to this agreement may be made following written notice from the DCCCD Chancellor and the BAYU President, or their designees. Once this agreement is signed by the appropriate officials at DCCCD and BAYU, each is free to publicize this arrangement in a manner consistent with the agreement. This articulation agreement shall remain in effect until one or both institutions deem it necessary to terminate it.

By signing each party recognizes the commitment to exchange only the most current and accurate information. This agreement may be terminated by either party by giving written notice of said party’s intention to the Chancellor of the DCCCD or his designee and the BAYU President, or his designee.

This agreement shall be in effect beginning March 2001.
