Before Making an Appointment

Students who are transferring to the U of A with a major in Fulbright College should make an appointment to meet with an academic advisor. Be prepared for your advising appointment by completing the checklist below.

  1. Make sure you have been completely admitted to the U of A.
  2. Make sure all your completed transfer work has been posted to your UAConnect student center (click "Other Academic" and scroll down to "Course History").  Need help? Click here.
    1. Note: If you took courses concurrently during high school, submit those transcripts as well.
    2. Note: If you have AP/IB credits, you need to have those scores sent to the UA directly from College Board.
  3. Make sure your immunization records have been turned in to the Pat Walker Health Center.  Email to immu@uark.edu or fax to 479-575-7789.
  4. Make sure to remove any non-advising holds on your student center in UAConnect.  

Finished with steps 1 - 4?  Here's how to Schedule an Appointment:

  1. Fill out the Transfer Advising Request form online.  This process ensures that we have all your transcripts and AP/IB scores to properly advise you.
  2. Within 48 hours of form submission, you will be contacted by the Advising Center regarding your appointment.
    1. Please have a copy of your current transcript available during your advising appointment if you are taking courses this semester.
