Arkansas students applying for undergraduate admission to the U of A can do so for free October 13-15 as part of the Free Application Days event.

In partnership with the Chancellor’s Office, the Office of Admissions will waive the application fee for any Arkansas student applying for undergraduate admission on any of the three days.

To take advantage of this special opportunity, students must go to apply.uark.edu to start an application, click the Free Application Days box at the end of the application instead of paying the fee.

“Creating access to higher education for Arkansas students is one of our top priorities at the University of Arkansas,” said Charles Robinson, interim chancellor. “The opportunity to apply for free is a way to help families in our state who have students ready to become Razorbacks.”

For fall 2023, the U of A will accept optional applications for admission to the test, another way to help academically prepared high school students who may not have had a chance to take the test. ‘ACT or SAT or who haven’t gotten their high score yet. Students across the state are encouraged to apply for admission early in their senior year so they have time to take care of everything on their college checklist.

“This event is part of our You can in Arkansas awareness campaign,” said Suzanne McCray, Vice Provost of Registration and Dean of Admissions. “This fall, we had a record number of Arkansans in our freshman class. This program was part of helping our state students get into it, and we look forward to helping even more Arkansans to attend the U of A this year. We are dedicated to their success and here to help them.
