Tuition at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock will remain flat, the board of trustees announced.
This is the second consecutive year the board has voted to keep tuition and fees the same.
“We understand that many students and their families are still getting back on their feet as the pandemic begins to wind down,” Chancellor Christina Drale said in a statement. “We remain committed to providing affordable access to high quality education.”
University leaders attributed this decision to improving education access and student success rates. UA Little Rock will be bolstering its scholarships, offering a new Trojan Strong Scholarship. In addition, the university expects to dole out $10 million in federal student aid grants from the American Rescue Plan next year.
UA Little Rock also plans to establish a learning commons in Ottenheimer Library to increase access to tutoring services.
