Welcome to Rocket University- SAU Tech's transfer university created just for you! With the rising cost of a four-year education, everyone needs options!  Rocket University provides a transfer program for you to start at SAU Tech and earn your first two years of college credit towards a bachelor's degree with around half the cost of attending a four-year college.

Every bachelor's degree begins with some basic or CORE classes. SAU Tech offers all of the CORE classes in a traditional classroom setting or online through our Online Campus.

SAU Tech has transfer agreements with many of Arkansas's universities like Southern Arkansas University, Henderson, the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith, and more. In addition, Arkansas has a law in place  (ACTS) that ensures that a two-year degree from SAU Tech transfers to the four-year college of your choice.  Whether you are thinking of becoming a doctor or you want to be a teacher, you can start at SAU Tech and transfer.
