University of Arkansas at Little Rock Named to Victory Media’s 2015 Military Friendly® Schools List
For the sixth year, UALR has been designated a Military Friendly® School by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds.
The Military Friendly® Schools designation process includes extensive research and a data-driven survey of schools nationwide approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding. The school survey, methodology, criteria and weightings are developed with the assistance of an independent Academic Advisory Board comprised of educators from schools across the country. The survey is administered for free and open to all post-secondary schools who wish to participate. Criteria for consideration can be found on their website.
UALR is also a member of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) an organization that provides educational opportunities to the women and men of the Armed Forces.
New Tuition Policy for Military Students
Starting Fall 2014, military students* will be charged in-state tuition rates + minimal fees; (For example: Technology Lab Fees and Nursing Lab Fees). Military students will be charged in-state tuition no matter what the circumstances (e.g., where they reside or whether the class is online versus face-to-face). This will allow our military students to have as little out-of-pocket expenses as possible.
(*Military students are defined as Active Duty, Guard/Reserve, or honorably separated Veterans.)
Military Students Do Not Pay $40 Application Fee
Beginning March 21, 2014, military students do not have to pay the $40 application fee. When applying to UALR, military students need to look for the portion of the application that asks about military service. Specific instructions will be provided on the application page.

Credit for Your Military Training
In 2008, our faculty voted unanimously to accept military credit as academic credit whenever possible. The military credit is any credit that is earned through evaluations performed by the American Council on Education and any other accredited military school such as Air University and the Community College of the Air Force. At a minimum, this military credit will go towards lower-level and/or upper-level elective credit. Whenever possible, military credit will be articulated as an equivalency for academic credit. What does that mean for you? You are able to complete your degree faster.
