With just under two weeks until classes begin at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, preliminary enrollment data for fall 2022 indicates that UA Little Rock is poised to see growth in its first-time freshmen and transfer students for the upcoming academic year.
Currently, first-time freshmen are anticipated to increase by about 20%, while transfer students are on-target to see an increase of about 10%.
“We have focused on making sure prospective students are aware of all the opportunities available at UA Little Rock,” said Cody Decker, vice chancellor for student affairs. “For example, one option for our incoming freshmen is a half-off tuition scholarship for eligible students. That scholarship supports our mission of making college accessible to Arkansans.”
UA Little Rock has also worked to ensure prospective students know about the benefits of living on campus.
“Students who live on campus are more involved and are more likely to achieve their education goals,” said Decker. “Additionally, prospective students are very impressed by our campus housing. We have multiple options for students to select from including private rooms, suites, apartments and pod-style accommodations.”
As a result of that effort, UA Little Rock is seeing increases in the number of students choosing to live on-campus. Currently, applications and room assignments for housing are up more than 10%.
While UA Little Rock is expecting growth, there is still room to join the incoming class, and there are still scholarship opportunities available for new students. Those interested in attending UA Little Rock, should apply soon by visiting apply.ualr.edu.
