TRANSFERABILITY OF CREDITS
Transferability of General Education Credits
The Admissions and Records Office serves as a resource for students who are planning to transfer and provides information and a current list of colleges and universities accepting MSCC credits in transfers. Most colleges and universities accept transfer credits from MSCC; however, the acceptance of transfer credit is the prerogative of the receiving institution. Students should obtain assurances in advance from the institution to which they wish to transfer.
Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS)
The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) is designed to assist in planning the academic progress of students from the high school level through the adult workforce. This system 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. Course transferability is not guaranteed for courses listed in ACTS as “No Comparable Course.” Transferability of courses taken prior to January 1, 2007, is at the discretion of the receiving institution. The Arkansas Course Transfer System can be accessed at http://acts.adhe.edu/.
Act 747 of 2011 establishes a statewide common course numbering system for postsecondary courses. The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) meets this requirement.
