The University of Arkansas at Little Rock is offering half-off course tuition and fees for freshmen who enroll at UA Little Rock for the fall 2022 semester.
First-time freshmen, as well as freshmen with 11 or fewer transfer credit hours, will receive up to 50% off tuition and fees for not their freshmen year for the 2022-23 academic year and their 2023-24 sophomore year as well.
“UA Little Rock is committed to making the college experience attainable for all,” said Dr. Christina Drale, chancellor of UA Little Rock. “This scholarship initiative represents one of several significant actions we are taking to expand opportunity and improve student success.”
The new half-off initiative is different than three programs announced earlier this summer, according to UA Little Rock officials.
The scholarship, valued at up to $10,000 over two years, is funded through a combination of private and institutional funds.
All freshmen who are unconditionally admitted to UA Little Rock and enroll in at least 12 credit hours for the fall 2022 semester are eligible for the scholarships. No additional application is needed for students to receive the scholarship.
Students who earn a 2.25 GPA or higher during the fall 2022 semester may renew the scholarship for the spring semester.
