Since Texas State University has other locations, if I were to get accepted into Texas state at San Marcos, could I be transferred to the one in round rock?

hey Madison! Our other location is in Round Rock. It's only for juniors and seniors. Most of our health profession majors are located there but a few others are, too. And yes, you could take courses at both or either campus at that point.
