Transfer

Transfer Students- A student who has taken a college or university course after graduation from high school or left high school before graduating to enroll full-time in college courses is considered a transfer student for purposes of admission to the University of Central Arkansas. A minimum GPA for transfer is 2.0 in completed coursework. We have two types of transfers: Freshmen Transfer and Non-Freshmen Transfer.

  2. An official transcript from all colleges or universities previously attended.
    • All transcripts are needed, even if no credits were received or you don’t want to transfer any credits. If you are currently enrolled in a college/university, send a transcript for us to review and then send a final transcript after you have completed your semester.
    • If you have 24 or fewer transferable hours, a high school transcript and ACT/SAT scores are also required
