COURSE EQUIVALENCIES

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.

Please visit the Arkansas Course Transfer System for more details.



TRANSFER CREDITS:

Before transfer credit can be applied toward any certificate or degree, a Transfer Credit Evaluation must be completed. Transfer credits will be evaluated by the Office of the Registrar and added to the permanent record only for students enrolled as certificate or degree seeking students. Each department may determine credit as fulfillment of specific degree requirements. Course work earned at another college will be transferred to Ozarka College if the institution is regionally accredited by one of the six regional accrediting agencies recognized by the Higher Learning Commission. Grades for developmental courses may be used as prerequisites to college-level courses only and are not transferable credit. Only those courses with earned credit of C or better will be accepted for transfer. Credit earned at other institutions will not be calculated in grade points earned at Ozarka College. Transfer students may be asked to submit course descriptions in addition to official transcripts.

PRIOR LEARNING CREDIT OVERVIEW:

Students may receive credit for Prior Learning toward certain degree programs. Prior Learning credit will be awarded based upon how the credit applies to the program of study, and if a valid credential was earned. Prior Learning credit will be evaluated by key faculty, and approved by the Provost prior to being sent to the Registrar for processing. No more than 25% of the total number of credits in any certificate or degree may come from Prior Learning unless the College has received prior approval by governing bodies such as the Arkansas Department of Higher Education.

CREDIT FOR MILITARY TRAINING:

Ozarka awards appropriate prior learning credit based on recommendations published by the American Council on Education. Students must submit an Army/ACE Registry Transcript, Joint Service Transcript, or equivalent documentation to the Office of the Registrar for evaluation of credit to be awarded.
