Concurrent enrollment is permitted, subject to the approval of the appropriate academic advisors.* Students are only eligible to receive financial aid funding from their primary institution.

High School Concurrent Enrollment
Under state law, UA Little Rock may concurrently admit qualified high school students to its academic programs as part‐time students. To be eligible for high school concurrent enrollment, the applicant must meet one of the following requirements:

  • Complete at least 50% of the state‐recommended college preparatory courses with a minimum grade point average of 2.5
  • Achieve a minimum overall high school grade point average of 3.0
  • Achieve a minimum composite score of 21 on the ACT

Admission under these guidelines does not guarantee that a student may be enrolled in a particular course. Individual university departments may restrict enrollment into specific courses based on the following criteria:

  • Acceptable score on a departmentally‐approved placement or proficiency test
  • Acceptable sub-scores on the ACT in the specific subject area
  • Permission of the department chair or instructor

Prospective students for high school concurrent enrollment must submit a completed UA Little Rock undergraduate admission application.

Tuition and other fees for students attending UA Little Rock under high school concurrent enrollment are the same as for regular undergraduate students. Students in this category are not eligible for federal aid.

*A student should obtain a Special Exception form for this purpose in the Office of Records and Registration.
