“We have focused on making sure prospective students are aware of all the opportunities available at UA Little Rock,” Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Cody Decker said. “For example, one option for our incoming freshmen is a half-off tuition scholarship for eligible students. That scholarship supports our mission of making college accessible to Arkansans.”
