At Bowen – Arkansas Residency

What are your residency requirements?
The UALR Admissions Office on our main campus determines eligibility for Arkansas residency status. If you have questions about the residency policy, call 501.569.3127. All incoming first-year students who are non-residents are offered a Non-Resident Scholarship.  Please refer to the Scholarships section of this site for more information.

I’m from another state. Do you have different admission standards for non-residents?
All applicants are considered in the same admission pool. However, because we are a state-funded school, we must limit the number of non-residents admitted into the entering class. Generally, non-residents comprise approximately 20 percent of each entering class.
