SMU - Collin Partnership
Transfer U - SMU
On February 15, 2002, Collin County Community College District and Southern Methodist University entered into a Pre-admission Agreement. According to the agreement, Collin students may apply to become pre-admission students at the beginning of their first year of study at Collin and subsequently transfer to SMU provided they follow SMU's curriculum guidelines and comply with all SMU admission requirements.
Pre-admission Students will receive the following student benefits at SMU:
- Application fee waived upon transfer.
- Access to advisers to review course selections, tranferability, and degree plan.
- Access to SMU library and privileges
- Attend events free as an SMU student.
- Student tickets availability
- SMU Computer store discount
- Discounted DART pass
To apply to become pre-admission students, Collin students must follow SMU's published curriculum guidelines, meet all SMU admission requirements, and complete the Pre-admission Application. SMU's application fee is waived when the student transfers to SMU. The Collin/SMU Admissions Committee will review each application and make recommendations for student selection. The application packet must contain official Collin transcripts, standardized test scores, personal essay, and one letter of recommendation.
In order to transfer to SMU, pre-admission students must maintain a grade point average of 2.95 in transferable hours if they have less than 30 semester credit hours. Pre-admission students with more than 30 semester credit hours must maintain a GPA of 2.7 in transferable hours. Collin students may transfer no more than 62 semester credit hours to SMU.
