UACCB Students Visit University of Arkansas at Fayetteville

Posted Date - 11/8/21

Trip designed to help bridge transfer students to UA

November 8, 2021

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

UACCB is a comprehensive two-year community college serving Independence County and the
surrounding communities with both transfer and career-technical programs. Students can complete
their first two years of a bachelor’s degree affordably and close-to-home, then transfer virtually
anywhere. Students can also complete a credential in a variety of work-ready programs such as office
supervision and management, construction, welding, cosmetology, and more within a semester to one
year. For more information call (870) 612-2000.

Alert Message

Campus community,

Cases of COVID-19 continue to increase in Arkansas and in our region.  Earlier today, the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees passed a resolution for campuses to implement mask wearing policies.  The UACCB Administrative Cabinet has reenacted Campus Procedure 220.20, Face Coverings and Social Distancing for Student, Employees, Guests, and Visitors.  

Effective immediately, UACCB will require all students, employees, guests, and visitors to wear masks indoors.  

This revision of Campus Procedure 220.20 is tied to CDC data regarding the level of community transmission for our area.  We will utilize a “stop light” indicator system, depending on the level of community transmission:

RED: The level of community transmission is high or substantial, masks are required.
YELLOW: The level of community transmission is moderate, masks are recommended.
GREEN: The level of community transmission is low, normal campus normal operations are in effect.

Our area is currently in RED: the level of community transmission is high, and masks are required.

The UACCB Administrative Cabinet will monitor the CDC rating and will evaluate the scale weekly.  This is a small step we can take to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and ensure we can maintain in-person learning.

Thank you.

Zach Perrine

Interim Chancellor
