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 bachelorâ€™s degree programs.
The list of majors that are included in the 8-semester degree completion program is published in UALRâ€™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 studentâ€™s record, and the student will not be able to receive financial aid or register for classes the following semester.
