UACCM has made agreements with local four-year universities in order to clarify and streamline the transfer process. These agreements are known as 2+2 Transfer Agreements. On this page, you will find the exact requirements to take at both UACCM and the University of Arkansas - Fort Smith based on the desired career path.
UACCM students should work closely with their academic advisor to ensure all requirements are met for the transfer agreement.
A student’s degree program requirements are those specified in the catalog in effect at the time of declaration of program major. Students must meet the program requirements and the graduation requirements as indicated by institutional and college policy. The program can be changed only with the approval of the official advisor. If original courses are eliminated, students may be required to meet new curriculum requirements in the degree program. If students are not enrolled for two or more consecutive terms (excluding summer terms), they must reenter under the program requirements of the current catalog. Students are responsible for understanding program requirements and changes.
