International Transfer Students

Our office reviews and evaluates the general education core curriculum requirements for undergraduate transfer students at UA Little Rock. As an international transfer student, there are some additional items we need to make an accurate evaluation.

Necessary Documentation for Course Evaluation

  1. All international transcripts must be submitted to an evaluation service such as International Education Evaluations (IEE), World Education Services (WES) at wes.org or any approved NACES servicers before being submitted to the Office of Admissions. The Office of Admissions must have the course-by-course evaluation to satisfy the transcript requirement for admission.
  2. Submit English translated course descriptions (PDF or Word Document file types only) of all the classes you completed at your post-secondary institutions to the Office of Transfer Student Services at transfer@ualr.edu. If the English translated course descriptions are not provided to you by a representative of your post-secondary institution, then you must also submit the original course descriptions in their native language. An example of this situation would be if you have a friend or family member that completed the translations for you.

The above steps are necessary for any students transferring credits from a foreign institution regardless of citizenship status.

International Student Services on Campus

In addition to these steps for proper evaluation of your credits, you will also need to complete the International Admissions Process. Key among those steps is to get your Immigration Verification and Financial Support submitted to the Office of International Student Services. Their office will be one of your primary centers for assistance and we encourage you to speak with them early in the admissions process.
