the semester begins about some free money?

Good morning, UACCM! New student orientation is currently underway here on campus, and we are gearing up for another record-breaking semester! Classes begin on Wednesday, but if you haven't made it to register yet, you can still attend late registration this Wednesday, January 13 and Thursday, January 14. Don't forget: you will need to pay a $25 late registration fee on these days.

Enrolled in a science class at UACCM that meets on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays? If so, remember that your first class will be held this Wednesday, January 13. Campus Connect incorrectly states that the classes will begin this Friday.  

Now how about some free money for upcoming semesters? You've heard about the Arkansas Lottery and Challenge Scholarships, so read on to find out how to apply for them:

Apply now for AR Challenge/Lottery Scholarship at, then go to the YOUniversal application and complete your information. This application is for all state scholarship programs (excluding the Governor’s Distinguished Program).
