Success Stories

This program is allowing me to finish what I started so long ago and what I thought I would never be able to do – finally finish school with a degree."

Due to the flexibility of online classes offered with the University of Arkansas, I worked full time yet earned a 4.0 GPA and made the Chancellor’s List."

I like taking online classes because I’m a working adult. When you go to lectures in person, you can miss things or just be there physically rather than mentally. Online gives you the capacity to go back and listen to lectures a second time or go back over a specific point in the lecture to fully understand it."
