Transfer Credit Policy
Transfer students are required to furnish official transcripts from all colleges or universities previously attended. Once the official transcript has been received by Southeast Arkansas College, the Admissions Office will evaluate in-state transcripts for ACTS courses. The remaining courses will be evaluated by the Dean of each department for additional courses that will be accepted by Southeast Arkansas Courses. Also, all out-of-state transcripts will be evaluated by the Dean of each department for transferable coursework.
NOTE: Only courses completed with a ‘C’ or better will be considered for transferability.
Transfer Agreements with Other Institutions
Southeast Arkansas College maintains specialized articulation agreements with a number of institutions in the state, in addition to the Arkansas Course Transfer System, which guarantees transferability of the list of general education courses across institutions. Students earning the Associate of Arts degrees are guaranteed that all their hours will transfer to another state institution, but students sometimes may still be required to complete institutional requirements, or repeat a course to fulfill requirements at the transfer school as they progress through the baccalaureate degree.
