Graduation Agreement Program (GAP)

Overview: ACT 1014, filed by Representative DeWayne Mack of Kirby, Arkansas, is a bill that was passed in 2005 by the Arkansas State Legislature. According to Act 1014, qualified first-time freshmen may elect to participate in a guaranteed 8-semester degree completion program for most bachelor’s degree programs.

The list of majors that are included in the 8-semester degree completion program is published in UALR’s website and in departmental publications.

An eligible student MUST accept or waive participation in the program. Failure to either accept or waive participation will result in a hold being placed on the student’s record, and the student will not be able to receive financial aid or register for classes the following semester.

Contact your faculty advisor if you are interested.
