DE QUEEN – On May 21, UA Cossatot Chancellor, Dr. Steve Cole, signed an articulation agreement with the University of Arkansas Walton School of Business in Fayetteville for the Associate of Science Business transfer degree. This degree will allow students completing the degree to seamlessly transfer to the University of Arkansas Walton School of Business online or as a resident student.

UA Cossatot Division Chair of Professional Studies, Barbara Lacefield, said, “We have been working for quite some time to get this agreement completed, so we are excited to finally have everything in place. We have had an agreement with other schools in the state for several years but nothing specific for the University of Arkansas, until now.”

Students who choose to complete this 62 credit hour associate’s degree at UA Cossatot can do so entirely online. They can then transfer to the Fayetteville campus to major in a variety of subjects, including business administration, marketing, management, and supply chain management. The agreement also allows students to transfer online to earn a bachelor’s degree in supply chain management, accounting, and general business.

Business transfer students from UA Cossatot who choose to move to Fayetteville and take classes on campus can qualify for the Arkansas Transfer Scholarship. This scholarship allows transfer students living on campus to pay the same tuition rate they paid at UA Cossatot ($74 per credit hour) at Fayetteville.

The Associate of Science Business degree at UA Cossatot is designed to improve employability and also transfer. With this new transfer agreement, more business students can earn more affordable degrees.
