Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS)

The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) is a postsecondary education resource service coordinated by the Arkansas Department of Higher Education (ADHE). ACTS provides course information to facilitate student transfer within Arkansas public colleges and universities. The ACTS database contains faculty-generated comparable course information for a number of courses offered at public institutions in Arkansas. Comparable courses within ACTS are guaranteed to transfer for full credit to any Arkansas public institution. Course transferability is not guaranteed for courses listed in ACTS as "No Comparable Course." Find out more at the Arkansas Course Transfer System website. Questions regarding ACTS may be directed to an academic advisor or the Office of the Registrar.

The chart below provides the University of Arkansas course equivalents for each of the ACTS courses offered on campus. ACTS course numbers are also identified in the course title of the equivalent UA course. For instance, the course title for ANTH 1023 Introduction to Cultural Anthropology is listed as:

ANTH 1023 Introduction to Cultural Anthropology (ACTS Equivalency = ANTH 2013).

Both this chart and the information in the course description are designed to assist students in identifying UA courses which are guaranteed to transfer between Arkansas public institutions.
