Transfer Credit Policy

Transfer credit may be accepted from students who provide official transcripts from institutions recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation if these credits fit the program of studies selected at ASU-Beebe and the student received a grade of "C" or better. (Note: Grades of "D" or better will be accepted from other ASU-system schools.) The University Registrar reserves the right to accept or deny transfer credits to ASU-Beebe based on the transfer institutions academic policies.

Official transcripts should be submitted to the Office of Admissions at the time of application to the University. Official transcripts will be evaluated by the University Registrar. Final approval of transfer credits rests with the Provost.   Courses accepted for transfer credit will be posted to the student's ASU-Beebe transcript with the grade earned and the transfer institutions course identifier and title. Transfer credit is not calculated as part of the student's ASU-Beebe cumulative GPA. Credits earned will only be reflected in hours earned and may be used for degree requirements. Only eight hours of technical credit may be used for elective requirements in the AA degree. Determination of technical credit will be made by the University Registrar.

Students must complete a minimum of 15 credit hours of residency to be eligible for an ASU-Beebe degree.

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 equitable treatment in the application of credits for admissions and degree requirements. Students may complete specified General Education courses anywhere in the public system as well as many courses in the degree/major that have been pre-identified for transfer. We hope this site is helpful for students, parents and campus personnel. This system is designed to assist in planning from the high school level through the adult workforce.

Non-Traditional Credits

(Maximum 30 Hours)

Credits earned through non-traditional methods may be awarded upon evaluation by the University Registrar. Students may petition the University Registrar in writing as to the specific courses for which they wish to receive credit with a rationale as to why credit should be given for each course. The courses must be direct equivalents to current ASU-Beebe courses. The National Program on Non-Collegiate Sponsored Instruction and the American Council on Education evaluate and make credit recommendations for educational programs, seminars, and courses from such entities as business and nonprofit organizations. Credits from technical schools of the armed forces are evaluated according to the recommendations of the American Council on Education in A Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Forces. A maximum of 30 hours can be earned through non-traditional methods, credit by examination, or a combination of both.
