At University of Arkansas Grantham, we evaluate prior learning and experience in and outside the classroom so you get credit for the time you’ve already invested in your education — saving you both time and money in the pursuit of your degree.

Credit for Your Prior Academic Experience

University of Arkansas Grantham accepts transfer academic credit from institutions accredited by agencies recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and/or the Council for Higher Education. Previously taken courses that are out of date in regards to latest developments, practices, or technology are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

In order for UA Grantham to evaluate potential transfer credit, the student is responsible for ensuring official transcripts are on file for all previously attended institutions prior to course registration.

Transfer credit is granted on a course-by-course basis for courses with content and value that’s equivalent to corresponding UA Grantham course(s). Credit will not be granted for courses in which the content duplicates material of a previously completed course or an examination for which credit has already been granted — with the exception of repeats for deficient course grades.


Transferring College Credit

College Transcripts

An official transcript is one sent directly to University of Arkansas Grantham from the Registrar of the issuing educational institution. If you wish to transfer credit, all official transcripts must be on file with UA Grantham and evaluated prior to course registration.

Credit by Examination

University of Arkansas Grantham accepts credit by examination from sources based on ACE credit recommendations. Visit www.acenet.edu to learn more.

Foreign Transcripts

Foreign transcripts must be translated into English and evaluated by a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (www.naces.org) or the Association of International Credential Evaluators (www.aice-eval.org).


Get More Credit for Your Experience

We accept several types of experience for college credit. Saving you both time and money.

Military Experience

University of Arkansas Grantham follows guidelines established by the American Council on Education to determine if military training and experience warrant academic credit.

Professional Experience & Training Programs

University of Arkansas Grantham follows guidelines established by the American Council on Education to determine if certain training programs, certificates and/or professional licenses warrant academic credit.

Experiential or Prior Learning

Through the Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) program, you can submit evidence of professional and experiential learning to be evaluated for potential college credit — because learning occurs in many places that aren’t a college classroom.

A Degree Plan Built
For You

Once the evaluation of potential transfer credit is complete, an Evaluations Representative will build a custom curriculum outlining the remaining courses needed in order for you to graduate based on the documents received at the time of evaluation — this is known as your Degree Plan.

Transferability of UA Grantham Credit

Distance Education Accreditation Commission
University of Arkansas Grantham is accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC). Other schools may not accept transfer course credits earned at UA Grantham. We make every effort to enhance the transferability of credit, but the student should always contact the registrar at the college or university of interest to determine if credits from UA Grantham will be accepted.
