Transfer and Test Credit
The University of Arkansas awards transfer credit to students in a number of different ways. Please refer to the Transfer of Credit in the Academic Regulations section of the Catalog of Studies for the policies controlling the granting of credit for course work taken at another institution. In evaluating transfer of credit, the Registrar’s Office uses guidelines which include, but are not limited to, the following:
- The course work is taken at an institution of higher education which has been accredited by a regional accrediting agency.
- The course work is not technical, vocational, or remedial (developmental) in nature.
- The course work is applicable to a baccalaureate degree.
- The course has a grade of C or better.
Grades earned at another institution are not computed in the University of Arkansas cumulative grade point average. The acceptance of courses for general transfer, whether listed as designated, core or limited, does not constitute acceptance of the transfer courses or the University’s courses for fulfillment of degree requirements. You should read carefully the requirements for graduation in the appropriate college section of the catalog and consult with the Dean’s Office of the college which will grant your degree.
Students can petition to have up to six hours of “D” grades transfer for degree credit.

If you have more than one institution from which you transferred and an official transcript has not been sent to the University of Arkansas, this course work will not be listed on your transfer credit report. Course work that has not been completed on the official transcript will not be posted to your transfer credit report. Please remember to send a completed transcript when all course work has been completed.
