Non-Resident Scholarship Opportunity

The University of Arkansas is excited to offer the Chancellor’s Graduate Student Non-Resident Tuition Scholarship (NRTS) for qualifying domestic graduate students. This scholarship will offer new, degree-seeking graduate students entering the University of Arkansas Graduate School (in Fall 2020 or after) an approximately 80% reduction of non-resident graduate career tuition for eligible programs.


Other tuition and fees apply for business, engineering, nursing and law courses. The cost estimates are based on amounts paid by students studying in an approved online degree program. For detailed information, contact the U of A treasurer’s office.
