Early College Start
Concurrent Enrollment refers to high school students completing college-level courses on their high school campuses. When students complete each course with an acceptable grade, they earn college credit and also satisfy high school graduation requirements.
Dual Enrollment refers to classes offered to students at SouthArk outside of the regular school day and on SouthArk's campus. Students may take any SouthArk course in which they meet the skills and college course prerequisites.
Students must meet general SouthArk requirements to enroll in either program:
Complete a SouthArk application for admission and an ECS-Registration form.
Submit a copy of their high school transcripts, immunization records, and ACT scores* to SouthArk.
Pay the class registration fee (if applicable).
*If ACT scores are not available or if students do not have sufficient ACT scores required for class admittance, the COMPASS test may be taken at SouthArk.
Transferability of General Education Credits
Most colleges and universities accept transfer credits from SouthArk; however, the acceptance of transfer credit is the prerogative of the receiving institution. Students should obtain assurances in advance from the institution to which they wish to transfer.
Students may link to the ACTS system to obtain information about the transferability of courses within Arkansas public colleges and universities.
