UALR is affiliated with the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory at Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Through this arrangement students receive UALR credit for courses taken at the research laboratory during the 12-week summer teaching session, which usually begins the first full week in June each year.
The summer session consists of two terms, although the length of some classes varies. Students register and pay tuition on the UALR campus and have their credit transferred to UALR for inclusion in their academic records. Students who want to take courses in this program must apply by May 1 for summer enrollment and have prior approval of their department chairperson or the on-campus coordinator.
