State Minimum Core Curriculum
Core and general education courses taken at another publicly supported Arkansas institution may be able to transfer.
As a public, state institution, UALR participates in the State Minimum Core Curriculum. Students transferring to UALR from another publicly supported Arkansas college or university should check with their advisor and the Arkansas Course Transfer System to ensure proper transfer of core or general education courses. The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) contains information about the transferability of courses within Arkansas public colleges and universities. Students are guaranteed the transfer of applicable credits and equitable treatment in the application of credits for admissions and degree requirements. Students may complete specified General Education courses anywhere in the public system as well as many courses in the degree/major that have been pre-identified for transfer.
To determine how your courses may transfer, please refer to the UALR Transfer Equivalency Guide.
You may also contact our Office of Transfer Student Services for additional information about how your courses may transfer or if you have other related concerns.
Vocational, military, and technical credits
Non-academic work (such as vocational, technical or military credit) is not automatically transferred.
UALR does not automatically transfer vocational, military or technical credits from other universities. If you would like for UALR to transfer coursework of this nature then you may fill out our Request to Receive Credit for Technical and/or Military Credit form.
Students with vocational, military or technical work transferred to UALR prior to August 1, 2011, can have that work removed from their UALR transcript by filling out the Request to Remove Technical and/or Military Credit form. Either of the above forms will need to be printed and signed by your departmental advisor before finally being submitted to the Office of Records and Registration for processing. Please note: You must have officially declared your major in BOSS before either of these forms can be processed.
