Become a Student


When you decide to apply for admission, it’s all done online. Just fill out our admission application and tell us about yourself. When you’re finished, submit the application. Along with the application, UALR needs supporting documents including:

  • Final, official high school transcript
  • ACT or SAT scores – If you haven’t taken the ACT or SAT,  Testing Services can help you learn more about the testing schedule and how to complete this requirement.
  • Immunization recordHealth Services Center, located in the Donaghey Student Center, offers free immunizations for measles, mumps, and rubella.
  • College transcript(s) – If you have attended another college or university, you must have each school send UALR an official transcript showing completed courses and grades.

What Happens Next?

UALR will carefully evaluate your academic documents, and we’ll send you a letter (from the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid) about your admission status.

If you have any questions along the way, UALR Admissions Counselors are available to help you apply for admission and answer your questions.
