Students who previously attended another college may enter Arkansas Baptist College as transfer students. Depending on the nature of the academic record, some or all of the credits earned may be transferred to Arkansas Baptist College. Students who have satisfactorily completed courses at an accredited institution may be admitted to regular standing with such advanced credit as their previous records may warrant. To be eligible for transfer, applicants must meet the following requirements:
- Submit an official “sealed” high school transcript and official “sealed” transcripts from all college or university previously attended. Applicants must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 grade scale and provide proof of good standing from previously attended institutions. Students who are not eligible for readmission to the institution of previous attendance will NOT be considered for admission to Arkansas Baptist College until they have been out of college for a minimum of one (1) year.
- Applicants must be prepared to submit course descriptions from the official catalog of the institution(s) from which credits are to be transferred.
- No transfer grades below “C” will be accepted.
- No transfer credit in the major over ten years old will be accepted until and unless it is validated by the major department.
- Students may transfer no more than the maximum number of credit hours they would be permitted to earn on this campus in a period of time comparable to that in which the transfer credit was earned. A maximum of sixty (60) hours will be accepted towards a degree from an accredited college or university.
- Applicants with a grade point average below 2.0 may be admitted conditionally. Conditionally admitted transfer students are eligible to enroll in a maximum of twelve (12) credit hours and must earn a minimum 2.0 grade point average in their first semester in order to re-enroll.
Transfer credits from unaccredited educational institutions are not accepted at Arkansas Baptist College. In exceptional cases where a student demonstrates (to the satisfaction of Arkansas Baptist College officials) a mastery of the subject matter equivalent to that taught on the general education level at ABC, acceptance of such transfer credit on an individual basis may be authorized, provided that such courses are equivalent in terms of course and hour values to general education courses taught at Arkansas Baptist College. In such cases, Arkansas Baptist College reserves the right to require the applicant to demonstrate the required proficiency by scoring at acceptable levels on departmental examinations in related subject areas, by undergoing a probationary period of residence at ABC, or by fulfilling both of these requirements.
