Advising Center

Our goal is to help you achieve YOUR goals!

What is an Advisor?

Advisors are individuals tasked with helping you plan your academic career. They guide you in choosing classes and direct you through the college process.

Who is my Advisor?

Your advisors information can be found on your Vanguard Portal homepage, under the Advisor heading on the right. You can send your assigned academic advisor a secure message through the Vanguard Portal.

Advising & Registration?

The first step in getting you ready to start attending classes is to meet with your advisor, establish your curriculum path for your degree plan and then your advisor can help get you registered into the classes that fit your schedule.  For more detail go to our Advising & Registration page.


Every student is assigned an academic advisor based on his/her degree program. Students should look in their Vanguard Portal for the name of their academic advisor, which is located on the right-hand side of the Portal homepage. It is important to establish this mentoring relationship early in your time at ASU-Beebe.

If you are dropping a course before the semester begins, you will need to login to your Vanguard Portal and click Online Registration under the Academics drop-down menu on the left. After modifying your registration, be sure to click Proceed to Final Step and then Register/Drop to complete the process.

You may adjust your schedule by adding or dropping courses at no charge during the open registration period. 

To drop a class after open registration, you need to complete an Individual Course Drop Request form and have the course instructor sign-off on the request. Then, you must submit this form to your advisor for implementation. You may request a copy of the signed form from your advisor for your records.

Arkansas Course Transfer System

The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS)

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" grade frequently do not transfer. Institutional policies may vary. 

The Roger Phillips Transfer Policy Act of 2009

The Roger Phillips Transfer Policy Act of 2009 established a system for fully transferable credit hours among public institutions of higher education for degrees in Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and Associate of Arts in Teaching. 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. The Act also specifies transfer guidelines for each two-year public institution within fifty miles of the four-year institution.
