Online courses provide students with the flexibility to combine family, work and school responsibilities.

Online courses are designed by the academic colleges and schools at the University of Arkansas to produce the same learning outcomes as traditional, on-campus courses.


Students admitted to the University of Arkansas and visiting students can enroll in online courses through the university’s UAConnect.

Check UAConnect for section availability and the most up-to-date, official course schedule.

Contact the appropriate college or school for information about specific courses, or check the undergraduate or graduate catalog of studies. Some may require instructor or department consent to enroll. Students should check with their advisors regarding course selection.
