Transfer students are students who have completed 24 or more transferable credit hours of college work at another institution. Students with fewer than 24 transferable credit hours should apply as entering freshmen.
The Registrar’s Office determines whether a course taken at another institution is acceptable for credit at the UA. To advise prospective students on transferability of coursework, advisors should use the Transfer Course Equivalency web page
Coursework evaluated for transfer credit falls in three transfer designations:
A report of students’ transfer work accepted for credit at the UA is available on ISIS (Home>SA Self Service>Learning Management>Advisement>View Advisees’ Information [Transfer Credit Report]).
Students may petition the Registrar’s Office to review transfer credit issues. The petition form is available on the Registrar’s Office web page (http://registrar.uark.edu/440.php). Students will need to provide a catalog description and/or a course syllabus to substantiate an appeal.

Transfer students must complete at least 30 hours at the UA to meet minimum residency requirements. They must also meet core and departmental requirements. A maximum of 68 hours of lower division transfer hours (1000 and 2000 level coursework) may be applied to a degree program.
