Transfer Credit  

Upon being admitted to Arkansas Tech University-Ozark Campus, your transcripts will be evaluated for transfer credit; the Ozark Campus will recognize transfer credit from U.S. regional accreditation associations. You must provide transcripts from every school you have attended.

Grades for transfer credit will appear on the Tech transcript as TA, TB, TC, TD, TW, etc.

All grades are calculated in the cumulative grade point average when reviewing admission requirements.

The equivalencies listed herein reflect the latest catalog grade point average when reviewing admission requirements. Some disciplines will prefer different requirements and/or may substitute equivalencies for their program.

The following are not accepted for general transfer credit:

Acronyms seen on articulated transfer work posted on the Arkansas Tech transcript:

GENL = General Elective Credit
GEBL = General Education - Biological Science Credit
GEFA = General Education - Fine Arts Credit
GEHM = General Education - Humanities Credit
GEPE = General Education - Physical Activity Credit
GEPS = General Education - Physical Science Credit
GESS = General Education - Social Sciences Credit
NT = Non-transferable course

The following policy is effective July 7, 2010. ATU will recognize transfer credit from the same U.S. regional accreditation associations; along with, additional colleges listed by ADHE in ACTS. The ACTS courses will be the only transfer credit accepted from that institution. Acceptance of the course credit will be determined by the date the institution was formally recognized by ADHE, and the student's matriculation term that must coincide or follow the date of that recognition. Credit from U.S. colleges and universities not accredited by one of the six regional accreditation associations or listed by ADHE in ACTS will not be accepted for transfer credit. Credit from colleges or universities outside the U.S. presented for transfer credit will be considered on an individual basis. Transfer credit, although accepted by the university, is not guaranteed to be applicable toward meeting degree requirements for all programs offered by the university. Applicability of transfer credit to meet degree requirements depends on the major selected by the transfer student.

Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS)

The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) is designed to assist in planning the academic progress of students from the high school level through the adult workforce. This system 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. Course transferability is not guaranteed for courses listed in ACTS as "No Comparable Course." Transferability of courses taken prior to January 1, 2007, is at the discretion of the receiving institution. The Arkansas Transfer System can be accessed at http://acts.adhe.edu/.

Act 747 of 2011 establishes a statewide common course numbering system for postsecondary courses. The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) meets this requirement.

The following table lists those courses found within ACTS and the equivalent Arkansas Tech University course as of April 1, 2013. Please refer to the ACTS website (http://acts.adhe.edu/studenttransfer.aspx) for the most up-to-date course listings.
