Transfer Students

Welcome to the University of Central Arkansas!

Whether you’re transferring to UCA after completing just a few classes at another school or bringing your Associate’s Degree with you, we’re glad you are joining us.

We know you’re not a “first-year” student like our freshmen, but starting at a new campus always has some challenges.  Please reach out if we can assist your transition or help in any way.  Be sure to explore all of the programs and services we offer, but especially note these:

  • Transfer/mation 
    • an orientation program for transfer students and families held during Welcome Week. Registration requested.
  • Transfer Bear Support
    • this online/onsite support program offers new transfer students weekly support through an online Blackboard Community, provides optional “accountability” reporting and check-ins, recommends academic success workshops that will help you improve your study skills, connects you to the many resources across the UCA campus, and gives you opportunities to meet with a Transfer Success Coach.
  • Academic Success Workshops
    • Most of us can always learn how to be better students.  Our Academic Success Workshops are offered each week during X-period and cover many of the skills you need to succeed.  We also host a number o of online workshops through StudentLingo.  See the schedule here.
  • Success Coaching
    • All students at UCA are encouraged to meet with our undergraduate and graduate peer coaches to discuss study strategies, time management, and how to navigate UCA.  We also have a dedicated Transfer Peer Coach.  Contact our coaches any time by making an appointment through GradesFirst (via myUCA) or stopping by the Success Coaching Lab in Old Main 106.
