Applications for internal transfer to the Jackson School of Geosciences are only accepted during the spring semester for admission the upcoming fall (JSG only admits students during fall). Students must have GEO 401 (or 303) and CH 301 or at least be enrolled in them during the spring semester they apply.  In addition, internal transfer applicants to Geosciences must demonstrate that they are taking or have completed a course equivalent to Mathematics 408C (or both M 408K and M 408L). Applicants who meet the requirement by the application deadline (May 1st) will receive priority consideration. Applicants with additional math and science credentials also receive priority consideration.

Students must have completed 24 hours in residence at UT and have a minimum 3.0 GPA in order to apply. The students we admit usually fall in the 3.3-3.6 GPA range or higher (depends on applicant pool).
