Transfer Students

Transferring Credits

The College of Engineering welcomes well-prepared transfer students. Please use the Course Equivalency Guide and your desired degree's requirements to ensure a course taken at another institution will count towards your University of Arkansas engineering degree.


We encourage prospective transfer students to communicate early and often with a U of A advisor to ensure you stay on track to enter our program and succeed. To request more information or if you have questions please contact Eric Specking, director of recruitment at or 479-575-7780. Once you are admitted to the U of A and have received a “transfer credit report” please email with your name, student ID number and the area of engineering you would like to study. An advising appointment in person, via email or phone will be arranged.

Partner Programs

Students enrolled at an Arkansas community college can take advantage of the STEM Preparation Program. This program provides online science, engineering and math classes for students interested in pursuing a degree in one of those areas.

Classes will count toward an associate's degree at the student's community college and an engineering, science or math bachelor's degree at the University of Arkansas. You can also transfer the courses to other colleges and universities, inside or outside the state of Arkansas. Learn more.
