Tuition Deadline...Tomorrow!

If you have pre -registered for your fall classes at UACCM , TOMORROW (Friday, July 31) is the tuition payment deadline! If you don't make a tuition payment or set up the e-cashier payment plan (more on that below) by this date, your classes will be dropped and you will have to re-enroll during regular registration on August 11-13. Trust me, you do not want to do that! Don't have the cash on you right now? Sign up for the e-cashier easy payment plan and enjoy a monthly payment option. This is not a loan program, so you don't have to pay interest. It simply gives you more time to pay your tuition bill. For more information or to get started, click here and click on "Pay Online" on the right side. Receiving financial aid? Financial aid recipients will be able to remain enrolled in classes if all required paperwork is complete in the Financial Aid Office by Friday, July 31. For more information, stop by UACCM or call (501) 977-2000. Hope finals went well, and we&

The office is currently moving to its new location in Room 215 (upstairs) in the University Center. It may take a few days to get all the kinks moved out at the new location, but if you need assistance from the Registrar, drop by or call 977-2052. Fall semester starts August 19!

Kid's College 2009: Great Success!

Several area children witnessed knights, damsels, and castles along with the sights and sounds of the Serengeti during Kid’s College, held July 20 through 24 at UACCM. During the week, participants learned about all aspects of the medieval period including who lived there, what they ate, and what they did for work. Students also learned about the Serengeti region, including what kinds of animals live there and what the land is like. Kid’s College featured elaborate decorations and many hands-on activities, games, experiments, art, and other interactive displays designed to enhance math, science, and artistic skills among the children in a fun environment. During their final day on campus, the children invited their parents to come and enjoy a program highlighting what they had learned during the week and to watch them receive their certificates for completing the program. The Little Rock Zoo came to campus and brought a few animals typically found in Africa for the children to see and

Just the FACTS, ma'am

Happy Wednesday, everybody. If you're already registered but are not sure how you're going to pay your tuition for the upcoming fall semester, here's something that just might help make it a little easier for you: Pre -registered students have until July 31 to pay your tuition accounts in full or sign up for the FACTS easy payment plan. This easy payment plan lets you make 4 easy payments throughout the semester that can be automatically drafted from your checking or savings accounts or a credit card (sorry, no VISA cards accepted). The best part is, you don' t have to pay interest! The only cost to sign up is $25 each semester to get the automatic draft set up. Anyone registering during regular registration (August 11-13) can sign up for the FACTS payment plan until August 18 or will be expected to pay in full at the cashier window when registering. Check with one of faces behind the Students Accounts windows in the University Center for more information. Watch the b

The GOV. at UACCM and a Pell Grant Deadline

Gov. Mike Beebe hosted an Arkansas Works Summit education meeting yesterday on campus to discuss the correlation between education and economic development. Representatives from each county in Arkansas met at the capitol in October 2008 at the Arkansas Works Summit to discuss economics and education, and the stop in Morrilton was part of Beebe’s statewide tour which aims to bring the messages of that summit to communities throughout Arkansas. According to Beebe, “Education is economic development. You can’t have one without the other.” He emphasized the importance of two-year colleges in the state saying, “Communities with a two-year college in Arkansas have a major leg up on surrounding areas. Colleges have to be able to go to industries in the area and ask what they need to do to help train tomorrow’s workforce.” Beebe commended UACCM for the creation of the college’s Petroleum Technology Program in response to the needs of the Fayetteville Shale Play and added “If we don’t provi

The Looooooong Days of Summer II...

Happy Tuesday, everybody. As many of you may know, the second summer term is now in session! I'm sure everyone taking a class is unbelievably excited to be getting a class out of the way in the laid-back long days of summer. If you're not so excited, just remember: it won't last long! Here are a couple of reminders for you all this morning: The E. Allen Gordon Library here on campus is currently closed and will remain closed until Monday, July 20. "Why?" you ask?
