Students seeking admission into UALR should consider the following:
- Identify the academic program you are interested in and research their webpage, course catalog and course descriptions. Graduate students will want to be in touch with their Graduate Coordinator. Research and ask questions to ensure that it is the right program for your academic goals.
- Decide when to begin your studies at UALR. Take note of the program deadlines. Some programs have strictly enforced deadlines, while others have rolling admission. Application for admission can be submitted up to twelve months in advance of the semester in which you wish to begin your studies at UALR. Any applications received after the deadlines will automatically be deferred to the next semester.
- Summer Start Date: F and J students considering beginning a program in the summer must be sure there are enough on-campus classes to be enrolled full-time.
