  • Important information about 2+2 transfer opportunities
UCA and UA-PTC currently have 67 existing “2+2” transfer agreements, providing a clear pathway to both an associate degree at UA-PTC and a baccalaureate degree at UCA. These agreements allow students to seamlessly transfer to UCA with no loss of credits.
