On Nov. 1, 2021, Grantham University joined the University of Arkansas System and officially became the University of Arkansas Grantham. UA Grantham is now a stronger institution with greater ability to serve the thousands of students already enrolled in more than 50 fully-online degree and certificate programs.
Since its founding in 1951, Grantham has sought to enable access to education for adult learners. Now part of the University of Arkansas System, UA Grantham is better-positioned to grow the number of quality, affordable, professionally-relevant programs it offers to learners in Arkansas, across the country, and around the world.
The UA System has a tradition of excellence that includes the state’s 1871 flagship, land-grant research university; Arkansas’s premier institution for medical education, treatment and research; a major metropolitan university; an 1890 land-grant university; two regional universities serving southern and western Arkansas; seven community colleges; two schools of law; a presidential school; a residential math and science high school; a 100 percent-online university and divisions of agriculture, archeology and criminal justice. The UA System enrolls more than 70,000 students, employs over 28,000 and has a total budget of more than $4 billion. Visit uasys.edu for more information.
Diplomas, transcripts, and student records for graduates and former students of Grantham University will continue to be available from the new University of Arkansas Grantham. Beginning in January 2022, new graduates receive University of Arkansas Grantham diplomas and certificates.
UA Grantham remains committed to its mission of providing high-quality online learning opportunities; the Grantham degree, already a respected credential, will now be backed by the strong reputation of Arkansas’s premiere higher education system.
Everything we do is done with a focus on minimizing obstacles and maximizing quality learning for our students. UA Grantham’s 100% online degree programs are designed for adult learners. Our eight-week classes are flexible and affordable: we offer one of the lowest tuitions in the nation1, plus generous credit transfers and even lower tuition for first responders, veterans, and military families.
At UA Grantham, we’re on a mission to make education more accessible, which is why all new and returning students who enroll in a degree program receive a new Lenovo laptop—at no additional cost.
For over 70 years, our graduates have been achieving more with a University of Arkansas Grantham degree. Now it’s your turn. Contact us today to get started.
