Frequently Asked Questions About UA Little Rock Online


Do I qualify for the reduced rate if I take online classes?


Is is safe for me to assume if I take most or all of my classes online, that I qualify for the UA Little Rock Online reduced standard rate?

The reduced standard rate applies to fully online programs offered through the Online Campus, not individual online courses. Students must be declared in a UA Little Rock Online program to qualify for this reduced rate. Students who take online courses via the Main Campus will be assessed regular tuition and fees, plus a distance education technology fee.


How do I change my campus?


How do I switch to the Online Campus? Can I switch back to the Main Campus at any time?

Only the program coordinator, advisor, or authorized personnel within the academic department can request a campus change and declare the student’s degree program in BOSS. Students must email their request to change campuses and/or majors to their advisor for this change to occur. The policy of the Office of eLearning is that a student may switch their campus only once within a calendar year.


Are UA Little Rock Online students allowed to visit the main campus?


Once I am a UA Little Rock Online student, can I still come to the main campus if I want to? Will I ever be required to come to campus?

Students participating in UA Little Rock Online take all their coursework online, and there is no requirement to come to the physical campus for any reason for most programs (please check individual program requirements for any exceptions). However, online students are welcome to visit our physical campus if they want to meet with professors, advisors, or classmates; utilize on-campus academic services; or participate in their commencement ceremony. UA Little Rock Online students do not have access to non-academic services on campus, such as the Donaghey Fitness Center, Health Services, or Counseling Services. (Please note: Counseling Services will still provide external resources for students seeking help.)


What is a 9U section?

What is the difference between a “9U” section and other online sections? How do I register for a 9U section?

There is no other difference between 9U sections and other online course sections in terms of the content or delivery.
