The college search process can be a daunting task, but we’re here to help. If you’d like to talk to someone before starting this process, we encourage you to contact your admissions counselor. If you are planning to transfer from another college or university, follow the steps below.
Submit your official transcript(s) from the other colleges and universities you have attended. Please have them sent to Ouachita Baptist University, 410 Ouachita Street, Arkadelphia, AR, 71998.
Visit campus. We have several types of opportunities for you to visit our campus. See which one works best for you.
Explore the financial aid possibilities. We will be there for you every step of the way as you navigate this road. Our application for admission is also our application for OBU financial aid. You will also find extensive information on state, federal and private aid on our website.
Once you are accepted to Ouachita, send in a $150 admission deposit. This deposit is required before we house you in a residence hall or set a fall schedule for you. We recommend you do this by late February of your senior year or as soon after this time as possible.
Those who wish to transfer to Ouachita should apply for admission as transfer students and supply catalogs from college(s) in which you are currently enrolled. Transfer students may be admitted only if they are eligible to return to the institution from which they came. They must declare all colleges and universities attended in the past.
For additional information regarding admission of transfer students and for the transferability of coursework taken at other institutions, please contact our Registrar at 870-245-5578.
