The academic year includes two regular semesters in the fall and spring, each with sessions within the term, and a summer semester with four terms. Some courses are also available between semesters during late spring and winter interim.

The unit of credit is the semester hour. This unit is defined as credit earned for the completion of one hour per week in class for one semester. Two hours or more of laboratory work per week for one semester equal one semester hour of credit. UA Little Rock offers night and weekend courses, web‐based courses, and courses on campus and at various off‐campus locations. Admission requirements and academic performance for night and weekend classes are the same as for day classes. Web‐based courses are charged a distance education technology fee. Continuing‐education courses are offered as a service to specific professional and vocational groups of the community. These are available on both credit and non‐credit basis.
