Eight students from the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville visited the University of
Arkansas at Fayetteville October 15 – 17, 2021. The trip, designed to give potential UA transfer students
a hands-on experience, allowed students to tour the campus, learn about programs, and attend a
football game. Dr. Charles Robinson, UA Fayetteville Interim Chancellor, greeted the UACCB group.
Many UACCB students complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree then transfer to a 4-year
college or university. As a community college in the University of Arkansas System, students benefit
from those system-level partnerships. At the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, students completing
an associate degree at their local UA community college are eligible for the Arkansas Transfer
Achievement Scholarship. The Arkansas Transfer Achievement Scholarship is an annual award that
matches tuition from the two-year college.
More information on the University of Arkansas’s transfer scholarships, including the Arkansas Transfer
Achievement Scholarship can be found at scholarships.uark.edu/transfer-scholarships/.
UACCB is a comprehensive two-year community college serving Independence County and the
