ACTS – Arkansas Course Transfer System

The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) contains information about the transferability of courses among Arkansas public colleges and universities. Students are guaranteed the transfer of applicable credits and the equitable treatment in the application of credits for admissions and degree requirements. Course transferability is not guaranteed for courses identified in ACTS as having "No Comparable Course." Additionally, courses in which a student has earned a "D" frequently do not transfer, and institutional policies may vary. ACTS may be accessed on the Internet by selecting Arkansas Course Transfer System from the Students tab on the ADHE website.

In the Undergraduate Bulletin, beginning with the 2013–2014 issue, ACTS index numbers are included in relevant course lists and in the check sheet for the lower-division UCA Core.

Course list links:

  1. UBulletin 2014–2015
  2. UBulletin 2013–2014

UCA Core links:

  1. UBulletin 2014–2015
  2. UBulletin 2013–2014

Additionally, the following table (most recently updated 2013-09-23) lists UCA courses and their ACTS counterparts. Course numbers and names in red indicate local changes not yet reflected in the ACTS database.

The ACTS website notes the following (indicated by asterisks in the table):

* Note - Human Anatomy and Physiology I and Human Anatomy and Physiology II must be taken at the same institution to be transferable.
** Note - Accounting and business courses are not general education core courses.
