UALR student in the Student Success Center


First of all, welcome to UALR! You are about to embark on a journey that will challenge you, inspire you, and prepare you for the world.

So you don’t miss a step, here’s the rundown of what you need to do:

Step 1Apply for Admission

Admission for entering freshmen must be completed by Jan. 3, by 5 p.m. Apply for UALR admission >>

Step 2Get Advised and Register

Freshmen who have been admitted to UALR can be advised and register for spring as early as Dec. 3 to get the classes they want.

  • Priority Registration: Dec. 3-Dec. 6
  • Early Registration: Dec. 9-Jan. 3
  • Regular Registration: Jan. 6-Jan. 10

Meeting with an undergraduate advisor is simple (and essential) – to schedule your first appointment call 501.569.3386 or 501.569.8688. This also is when you will log in to BOSS, our registration system. 

Step 3Pay for School

For Spring 2014, you will need to satisfy payment requirements before you can reserve your class selections. To apply for financial aid, you must first complete a FAFSA and the Fall Financial Aid Application on BOSS. The spring preferred deadline is Nov. 1 (we recommend you aim for that date to get squared away early), while the final deadline is Apr. 1. Learn about your options >>

Step 4Confirm the Term

You’re almost finished! “Confirm the term” means that you are ready to begin, you have all of your classes as you need them, and you’ve lined up how you will pay.
