UACCM

Undocumented & Non-Traditional Documented Immigrant Student Admission

Admission Requirements

UACCM welcomes all students regardless of immigration status. Undocumented students will be charged Out-of-State Tuition unless they are able to submit the documentation indicated on the Non-Traditional Documented Immigrant Request For In-State Tuition Form. Payment Plans are available. Since undocumented students are not eligible for federal or state funded financial aid, we recommend applying for private scholarships. Non-traditional documented immigrants eligible for in-state tuition are also encouraged to apply for UACCM scholarships

Degree completion by a student does not guarantee licensure in Arkansas or any other state. Licensure is governed by the laws and regulations of each state. It is the responsibility of the student to understand a state’s licensure requirements, and to factor those eligibility requirements in making the decision to pursue a program of study that leads to licensure.
