Our Goals

Student Spotlight

I was able to work one-on-one with the outstanding U of A Economics faculty, and now I have the confidence and skills to handle research projects independently. Plus, since I was in charge of all aspects of the courses I taught as a teaching assistant, I know exactly what is involved as I prepare new courses as an Assistant Professor.

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.
