The University of Arkansas at Little Rock was established as Little Rock Junior College in 1927. The institution became a private four-year university under the name Little Rock University, in 1957. It returned to public status in 1969 when it merged and co-created the University of Arkansas System under its present name.
As Arkansas’ leading metropolitan university, UALR is committed to responding to the needs of the community by creating active links between the campus, community, and commerce. UALR serves a different kind of student – about half are balancing families, careers, and school. The University is also able to put its students in close contact with the state’s most influential leaders in government, business, industry, medicine, and information technology because of its location in Arkansas’ capital city.
It’s all about flexibility with UALR’s online learning. We let you define your time and your terms, and online classes empower you to determine your future success.
UALR is the leader in Arkansas for online classes and online programs for undergraduate and graduate students. Whether you want to save gas, spend more quality time with family, or just enhance your career options, UALR’s online courses offer a welcome change and flexibility for your busy life.
Online classes use the Internet to allow UALR students take advantage of a distance education medium. Instructors use online courses to present course materials, hold electronic discussion groups, provide Internet links to applicable sites, and administer chat sessions.
Online students must have weekly access to a computer with a current web browser and Internet access. Some online course instructors may require on-campus or proctored testing, and others meet with their classes only electronically.
UALR offers aid from various sources including federal and state governments, colleges, and private organizations, to help you pay for your studies. Financial aid and scholarships are meant to supplement your family’s ability to pay for college costs including tuition and fees, room and board, books, supplies, transportation, and other educational expenses.
