      Step 4

      International Student Notification of Transfer Form

      Transfer applicants should submit an official transcript from all colleges attended. Please request that the institution mail the transcript directly to the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton, 1537 University Blvd., Morrilton, AR 72110. (If transcript is in a maiden name, please ask college to indicate your current last name on form.) Students who have successfully completed 15 college-level credit hours are not required to submit evidence of U.S. high school diploma equivalency.

      Step 5

      *Submit Proof of English Proficiency.

      Submit one of the following:

      • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) minimum score of 500 on the paper-based exam, 173 on the computerized exam, or 61 on the internet-based exam
      • International English Language Testing System (IELTS) minimum score of 5.5
      • Successful completion of an Intensive English Program at a regionally accredited college or university in the United States
      • Successful completion of college-level English Composition I and English Composition II with a grade of C or better

      Step 6

      *Provide evidence of sufficient financial support.

      Approximately $24,699 is needed for one full year of study and living expenses while attending UACCM. Students must provide certified evidence (or financial institution documentation) of the source and amount of financial support for the prospective student.

      Step 7

      Provide proof of health insurance coverage.

      Step 8

      Provide shot record.

      Arkansas State Law requires all international students to provide proof of immunization for measles, mumps, and rubella (Two measles immunizations, one mumps immunization and one rubella immunization; MMR) and tuberculosis screening results. This immunization should be from a clinic or health department in the United States.

Once a prospective student has met the admissions requirements, the Admissions Office will be able to issue the student an I-20, i.e. a Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant (F-1) Student Status, which will be submitted to the regional Naturalization and Immigration Office verifying the student’s projected enrollment dates.

In addition to submitting all required documents, students must demonstrate the following to be admitted to UACCM:

  • High school graduates or GED graduates must have at least a cumulative high school GPA of 2.25 or composite ACT score of 15, ACCUPLACER Next Generation reading score of 230, or comparable test scores such as SAT.

Students failing to achieve the minimum acceptance score will be encouraged to attend an Adult Education Program to improve their test scores to at least the minimum level and then seek admittance to UACCM.
