Arkansas Course Transfer System

The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) contains information about the transferability of courses within Arkansas public colleges and universities. Students are guaranteed the transfer of applicable credits and the equitable treatment in the application of credits for the admissions and degree requirements. Course transferability is not guaranteed for courses listed in ACTS as "No Comparable Course." Additionally, courses with a "D" frequently do not transfer and institutional policies may vary. ACTS may be accessed on the Internet by going to the ADHE website and selecting Course Transfer (http://acts.adhe.edu).

The Roger Phillips Transfer Policy Act of 2009

This act established a system for fully transferable credit hours from degrees in Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and Associate of Arts in Teaching among public institutions of higher education.  It requires all four-year public institutions of higher education to accept all hours completed and to admit a transfer student with junior status in a baccalaureate degree program. As well as developing transfer guidelines for each two-year public institution within fifty miles of the four-your institution.
