Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS)  Information

Act 472 of 2007 requires Arkansas post-secondary institutions to inform students of the Arkansas Course Transfer System and how to determine which courses will transfer to other Arkansas public institutions. The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) is a post-secondary education resource service that provides comparable course information to facilitate student transfer within Arkansas public colleges and universities. Comparable courses within ACTS are guaranteed to transfer for full credit to any Arkansas public institution.  Students may complete specified General Education courses anywhere in the public system as well as many courses in the degree/major that have been identified for transfer.  Students may use the ACTS database to obtain faculty-generated comparable course information for a number of courses offered at public institutions in Arkansas.

Click HERE to access course transfer information in ACTS.

Then, press the “Continue” button at the bottom of the page to begin the process. The next page, labeled ACTS Student Transfer, will give you the opportunity to view transferable courses by selecting the institution that you are transferring from and the institution that you are transferring to.  Follow the instructions given.
  • If the report lists a course, the course is guaranteed to transfer if the receiving institution has a comparable course.
  • If the report states “No Comparable Course,” the course is not guaranteed to transfer. Contact the transfer officer at the receiving institution for further information as it is possible that the course will transfer.
  • Transferability of courses taken prior to January 1, 2007, is at the discretion of the receiving institution.
  • Courses with a grade of "D" are not guaranteed to transfer.  Institutional policies regarding the transfer of courses with a grade of "D" may vary.
