Back to Student Affairs

University of Arkansas at Little Rock
Policy Name: Concurrent Enrollment Between University of Arkansas Campuses
Policy Number: LR 502.4
Effective Date: June 29, 1979


Concurrent enrollments, excluding enrollments in jointly administered programs, by students at more than one campus of the University of Arkansas are permitted. The fee paid by students who enroll concurrently will not exceed the maximum full-time rate. Course work taken at the secondary institution while concurrently enrolled will be accepted by the primary institution as hours accomplished and grades earned. With the prior approval of the appropriate adviser at the primary institution, such work will be counted toward a degree. Correspondence work and non-credit or CEU Continuing Education courses are not included in this policy.

Students may wish or be required to enroll at a campus other than their primary campus for various reasons such as making up deficiencies, filling program requirements, or personal desires. The following policies apply in this program:

  1. A student’s “primary” institution is the campus at which he or she has taken, or intends to take, the majority of the work leading to a degree. A “secondary” campus is one in which the student enrolls concurrently.
  2. Enrollment in the “secondary” institution shall be on a space-available basis.
  3. The official status of a student relative to class standing and residence will be determined by the primary campus.
  4. The primary campus will establish a limit for each individual on the number and type of credits to be acceptable from the secondary institution.
  5. Undergraduate students will not be permitted graduate status at a secondary campus.


  1. Students requesting concurrent enrollment privileges will obtain a “Concurrent Student Form” from the Registrar’s Office and complete it by:
    • Obtaining the approval of his or her major professor and department head on the student’s plan, as witnessed by signatures; and
    • Obtaining the signature of the Registrar to verify the student is enrolled in good standing.
  2. The student presents the Concurrent Student Form and, if requested for advisement purposes, a transcript to the secondary campus well in advance of registration.
  3. During the registration period at the secondary campus, the student presents a receipt to show payment of tuition at the primary campus.
  4. Upon completion of the course(s), the secondary institution will forward a grade slip, with credit and grade for the course(s), together with the Concurrent Student Form to the Registrar of the primary institution for official entry on the student’s transcript.

Financial Arrangements

Students taking ten hours or more normally will be enrolled at their primary campus, paying full tuition. Upon presentation of a receipt at the secondary campus, the student will not be charged additional fees. If the student’s combined enrollment is for fewer than ten hours, he will pay the prevailing hourly rate at each campus.

In the event the student enrolls for fewer than ten hours at the primary campus but enrolls for sufficient hours at the secondary campus to cause the combined enrollment to exceed ten hours, he or she will pay (to the secondary campus) the difference between the full course fee at the primary campus and the fees paid at the primary campus.
