The Arkansas Transfer Achievement Scholarship is a program that reduces the tuition rate for UACCM graduates who transfer to the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. With this scholarship, graduates with an Associate of Arts or Science degrees will pay their UACCM tuition rate instead of the full rate of the Fayetteville campus, resulting in big savings on their path to gaining a bachelor’s degree.

The scholarship is available to students from the seven community colleges in the University of Arkansas System, allowing them to pay the rate they paid at their UA two-year college. It is renewable for a maximum of 10 regular semesters and only applies to students transferring to the UA Fayetteville. The scholarship only applies to the base tuition and does not include fees or any additional costs charged by specific programs at the Fayetteville campus.

How much are you saving?

As of fall 2020, the UACCM basic tuition rates per hour are $92.00 for residents in Conway County and $102.00 for Arkansas residents outside of the county. The base tuition at UA Fayetteville is $252.28. With this program, a student paying the UACCM rates at UA Fayetteville can save $22,500 over 10 semesters. 

Who is eligible?

  • Arkansas resident
  • Earn an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, or Associate of Arts in Teaching degree
  • Requires degree conferment the regular term (excluding summer) immediately preceding transfer to the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville
  • Cumulative 2.0 grade point average
