Our Goals

Student Spotlight

I chose Arkansas because I wanted a program that would allow me to learn the craft of playwriting without giving up the other elements of theatre that I enjoy, such as acting, directing, and dramaturgy. I also wanted ample opportunity to teach classes and they support that here at the U of A.

The Office of Graduate Recruitment serves the University of Arkansas by focusing efforts on the Graduate School’s most valuable asset, its students. The Office of Graduate Recruitment will recruit quality students and develop relationships with educational and community organizations nationwide that will develop respect for our university. The relationships we create will ensure that culturally/ethnically diverse students have the opportunity to succeed at the University of Arkansas.

Information for International Students

The International Admissions Office serves prospective students who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents at the time of application. The International Admissions Office also assists with the evaluation of credentials for academic work awarded outside the U.S.

Admissions and testing requirements, frequently asked questions, contact information and available forms for International Students who wish to apply to the University of Arkansas are available at the International Admissions Office web site. For further information, international support issues, intensive English language, and on campus resources for International Students, please visit the International Programs and Services web site.

Information for Sponsored International Students

The University of Arkansas is pleased to offer a program to sponsors of international students and to the student directly which facilitates the admission, support, and repatriation of the sponsored student.

Sponsored Student Programs (SSP) takes the student and sponsor from the point of inquiry and admission to final degree conclusion and return home. We act as the point of contact for you, thus avoiding the confusion that frequently arises with multiple-bureaucratic systems.
