UACCB registration opens March 29, expanded scholarships available
Registration for summer and fall 2023 opens March 29 at the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB) for new and returning students. A variety of financial aid is available to assist students in paying for college. As of fall 2021, 100% of first-time entering freshmen received some form of financial support. With access to great aid packages, UACCB presents one of the best values in Arkansas higher education.
Starting this fall, all students new to college will be eligible for institutional scholarships with the appropriate ACT or Accuplacer scores. “We are trying something unique to engage all new students – it doesn’t matter if you graduated this year or 20 years ago, if you can meet the requirements, you can get a scholarship,” said Meagan Akins, director of admissions at UACCB, “everyone has their right time to go to college, and we want you to succeed.”
Students brand-new to college can make a 19 ACT composite or 246 Accuplacer average to be eligible for a $2,000 annual scholarship automatically, with higher amounts based on higher scores. This is the same base requirements for the Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarship, which further enhances the value of attending UACCB. Students are also encouraged to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
“Our Financial Aid team members can help students find a variety of great scholarships and grants that can make college affordable no matter which program they choose,” said Debbie Wyatt, director of financial aid.
“There are so many great things happening at UACCB right now, it’s really a perfect time to start college,” said Dr. Zach Perrine, vice chancellor for student affairs, “We offer a variety of transfer and work-ready programs at convenient times, including partially or fully online.”
