The University of Arkansas at Little Rock and University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences recently signed a series of 2+2 agreements.

The agreements outline pathways for students who earn an associate of arts degree in general studies at UA Little Rock to transfer to UAMS and complete a bachelor of science degree there.

Transfer options are available in seven degree program areas. They are:

  • B.S. in Ophthalmic Medical Technology;
  • B.S. in Radiologic Imaging Sciences;
  • B.S. in Cytotechnology (can be completed in one year);
  • B.S. in Nuclear Medicine Imaging Sciences (can be completed in one year and is an online-only program);
  • B.S. in Respiratory Care;
  • B.S. in Medical Laboratory Sciences; and
  • B.S. in Dental Hygiene.

The universities said the new agreements could save students time and money because they will know exactly which courses are needed to obtain their desired degrees.

In addition, all the UAMS degree options are full-time programs in high-demand fields, according to a news release.

Students in the 2+2 program must maintain a 2.5 GPA in the associate of arts in general studies program at UA Little Rock and gain admission to UAMS. Advisors at both institutions will work together with students who are planning to transfer.
