OTSS Mission Statement

The mission of the Office of Transfer Student Services is to smooth the transition to campus for UA Little Rock’s in-bound students. We provide services to meet the transfer credit evaluation needs of prospective, new, continuing, and current UA Little Rock in-transfer students. Our goal is to make transferring to UA Little Rock easier for students and the transfer process easier to understand. We provide a friendly starting place for transfer students to connect with information and resources.
