Transitional Course Completion Policy

It is the policy of the University of Central Arkansas and the State of Arkansas that any student who is required to complete transitional course work in reading, writing, or mathematics must complete all courses required for remediation within the first 30 credit hours enrolled at UCA, including the transitional course hours, with a grade of C or higher. Unsuccessful attempts are those that result in a grade of D, F, W, WP, or WF. Failure to complete the required course(s) within the first 30 hours will result in transitional suspension from UCA. To re-enroll at UCA, a student must complete the transitional course requirements with a grade of C or higher at another accredited institution of higher education, as defined by the Undergraduate Bulletin in Admission to the University Section [7] Transfer of Credit, and provide UCA with a transcript prior to registration for classes.

Additionally, this Transitional Course Completion Policy will apply to former UCA students who choose to re-enroll at the University. This policy complies with the provisions of ACT 1184 of 2011, ACA, § 6-60-208, and AHECB Policy 5.14.1. The policy is administered at UCA through the Department of Student Transitions.

UCA provides support services for students enrolled in the transitional courses including peer tutoring, computer-aided tutorials and software. Instructors maintain office hours so students can get individual help beyond the classroom. Students are encouraged to take advantage of these services.
