"The University of Arkansas, I can't emphasize enough, is the best program I could find in the world. I can't imagine anywhere that has a more effective program that offers what I was looking for."
Saratoga Springs, Utah
Ed.D. in Education Leadership
"I chose to pursue an online degree with U of A because I was a full-time student, full-time employee, and then I became a full-time mother, so that allowed me to do everything and still earn my bachelor's degree. I would tell someone else, just do it."
BSBA in General Business
"Everyone was so welcoming and helpful, and even though I was online, I never felt disconnected from the school. The advisers, the instructors, everyone was always available if I had questions or needed help with anything."
Bachelor of Human Resource Development
"My daughters know what my work ethic is, and they mirror it. I didn't want to go to college when I was raising them — it wasn't the right time for me — but now they see me and say, 'Mom, if you can do it, maybe I can do it, too.' They see me and know that I’m not going to quit."
BSBA in Supply Chain Management
"If you're going to use it in your career, then the earlier you start, the longer period of time you're going to be able to use it to impact others and impact the world and your community."
Ed.D. in Adult and Lifelong Learning
"If you are self-motivated, it's better than going to class from 8 to 3:30 every day. I worked full time, and we had a newborn when I started. It was very convenient to do online. You can study and work. I really do recommend this program."
