Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent enrollment is an option for students who plan to take one or more courses at another SEVP certified institution while maintaining an active SEVIS record with UALR. This is different form a transfer since the student will maintain spring and fall enrollment with UALR and ultimately receive their degree from UALR.

Coordinate with Academic Advisor

Students should coordinate with their academic advisor to make sure concurrent enrollment suites their degree plan and will be accepted toward their degree completion. Concurrent enrollment

Receive Approval from International Student Advisor

If a student is enrolled full-time at UALR and takes additional courses concurrently, they do not need approval from an International Student Advisor. Nor do they need approval for concurrent courses taken over the summer.

However, if the number of UALR credits drops below full-time enrollment (as defined by DHS), students will need to receive authorization for Reduced Course Load (RCL) on the basis of concurrent enrollment prior to the 11th day of class. Authorization for RCL must be requested on a semester-by-semester basis.

To receive authorization from an International Student Advisor, when needed, submit the Reduced Course Load form and attach proof of concurrent enrollment.
