By John Koehler August 25, 2021


Getting a Head Start on Your Future with UA Grantham


You may be interested in going back to school and starting a brand-new online degree program, but that doesn’t mean you have to start at square one. In fact, you could be more prepared than you might realize and could start classes in the very next session.

At University of Arkansas Grantham, we know that adult learners have a lot on their plates­—and we’re on a mission to make education more accessible. That’s why we offer a laptop at no extra cost,  technology services to make education convenient and more student support both in and out the classroom. We will even review your prior learning and experiences for college credit to see how we can help you maximize your credit award and put you closer to graduation.


Taking Advantage of Technology


Though advancements in technology have long made education more widely available and convenient for students, the events of 2020 showed just how valuable that evolution has become. And if you were among the millions who transitioned to team meetings via video conference or suddenly had to manage your children’s remote schooling alongside your own work, you are already familiar with how much is possible with  technology.

At UA Grantham, our programs are 100% online, making it possible to participate in coursework without giving up your family responsibilities, work obligations or other duties. We have the support you need such as: online tutoring and skill-building workshops, career services for students and alumni, and more.


Leveraging Your Past Experience


If you have taken courses in the past, received certifications or licenses, or have relevant industry experience, you could be eligible to receive Prior Learning Assessment to determine what deserves credit.


Don’t let another year go by without investing in the future of your career! Contact us today to learn how you can enroll to go back to school—you can even get started on your online degree in the next session.
