Admission of Transfer Students

Transfer students are those who have been enrolled previously in a higher institution of learning after earning a high school diploma or GED and have at least 12 transferable credit hours. A 2.00 cumulative GPA on all previous college work is required to be granted regular admission. Students with less than 12 transferable credit hours must meet freshmen admission standards (view freshmen admission standards). Applicants must submit:

  • Complete application of admission
  • Official transcript from each institution of higher education previously attended
  • Proof of two MMR immunizations (required for all applicants born after January 1, 1957)

Only official transcripts will be accepted for evaluation. Applicants are encouraged to apply early and submit documents by the early credential deadline. Please submit all official transcripts, even those with in-progress work, for initial review. All completed transcripts will be required to finalize your admissions application and receive your financial aid disbursement.

Once your online application for admission is received it will be reviewed and you will receive a letter or email within 3-5 business days reminding you of the required credentials needed in order to complete your admission application. Your application must be complete before you will be fully admitted to UALR.
