Transfer Students

Transfer Admission Requirements

Applicants who have attended other colleges or universities after high school graduation are considered transfer students. Applicants must submit official transcripts of all previous college courses attempted, whether or not credit was earned and regardless of whether the applicant wishes to transfer any credit to the University of Arkansas. Transcripts from each institution attended should be sent directly to the Office of the Registrar. All transfer students must meet the following requirements:

  1. Have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.00 on all course work attempted;
  2. Be eligible to return to the last institution attended. Grade-point average is calculated on all coursework attempted.

Students who have completed fewer than 24 transferable semester hours must, in addition to the above requirements, meet all requirements for freshman admission (see Admission of Entering Freshmen). Test scores and transcripts are also evaluated to determine whether State of Arkansas requirements for developmental course placement have been met. (See Registration.) For policies regarding transfer of credit from other institutions, see Academic Regulations.
