Students transferring from Arkansas Northeastern College to another college or university, should request that an official transcript of credits earned at ANC be sent to the Registrar's Office at the institution to which they plan to transfer.  Transcript request forms are provided for this purpose in the Registrar's Office and below.

Emailed Transcripts may NOT be accepted as "Official"

Please Note:

No transcript may be released without the written consent of the student

Students with outstanding financial obligations to ANC may not have transcripts released


The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) contains information about the transferability of courses within Arkansas public colleges and universities.  Students are guaranteed the transfer of applicable credits and the equitable treatment in the application of credits for the admissions and degree requirements.

Course transferability is NOT GUARANTEED for courses listed in ACTS as "No Comparable Course."

Additionally, courses with a "D" frequently DO NOT transfer and institutional policies may vary.


Students transferring to ANC from another college or university must request that official transcripts of their academic records be sent to the Registrar at the college. All transcripts should be received and evaluated prior to admission. Individual’s transcript records at ANC will be withheld if transcripts are not received by the Registrar’s Office by the end of the term. Credit accepted for transfer must have been earned at an accredited college or university with a grade of “C” or above for which ANC offers equivalent courses. Transfer courses with no ANC equivalent offerings will be evaluated for possible general elective credit. Transcripts from non-accredited colleges will, in general, be evaluated on the same basis as that used by the state university of the state in which the transfer college is located. Transfer students must be in good academic standing at the last institution attended. Entering transfer students should have a cumulative grade point average which falls within ANC’s guidelines for good academic standing. Students on academic suspension from another institution will be eligible for admission after having remained out of school for one semester. No transfer student will be admitted who is ineligible to return to the transfer institution. Students must be enrolled as certificate or degree candidates at ANC in order to have transfer credit evaluated and added to their permanent record. Initial transfer credit is evaluated based on student’s major. Grades earned in transfer courses are not considered in calculating students’ grade point averages. The cumulative grade point average at ANC is computed only on ANC courses completed. Transfer credit will be recorded showing the equivalent ANC course title and credit hours. Vocational or technically oriented courses will be accepted when directly related to a particular applied science program at ANC and will be applicable only toward the appropriate Associate of Applied Science degree.

Arkansas Northeastern College recognizes that much learning takes place outside the walls of the College.  Some of this learning is comparable to knowledge gained in a classroom environment.  This type of learning is based on a variety of life experiences and is referred to as "prior learning" and can be evaluated for credit by assessment.  When considering whether one possesses prior learning which may be credited towards a degree, it is best to begin discussions with the PLA Coordinator.  This individual is trained to assist students in the various methods available for prior learning credit.  For more information, please refer to the Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) Guide below.


The Registrar’s Office maintains a permanent record on each student which contains his or her application for admission, transcripts received from other institutions, and other pertinent documents. Students are allowed to examine their files, but must first make an appointment through the Registrar’s Office.


Student educational records (except directory information) are confidential, and access is restricted to: (1) the student, (2) ANC faculty and staff who have a legitimate educational interest, and (3) authorized officials/agencies cited in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended.


Directory information is defined as the student name, student ANC email address, telephone number, major field of study, classification by year, number of hours in which enrolled and number completed, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, including type and date granted. Directory information is considered public information; however, a student may request that his/her directory information be classified as confidential. Such requests should be made in writing to the Registrar each semester at the time of registration. No information may be released on students whose records have been classified as confidential. A copy of ANC’s Educational Records Policy is available in the Registrar’s Office.
