Students from Australia to Vietnam, Bolivia to Yemen, Croatia to Zambia and everywhere in between call the University of Arkansas home. Our international students have diverse backgrounds, but they share the common goal of wanting to receive a quality education from a university known for its academic and research excellence.
Pursuing an education outside of your native country can be exciting and a little scary, but at the U of A you are not alone. Nestled in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, you will find our campus welcoming and full of people and resources dedicated to helping you get the most out of your time as a student at the U of A.
New freshmen students never attended a college or university or are in high school and university courses at the same time (concurrently). Admission is based on secondary school transcript and certificate/diploma.
Applicants from countries where there are only eleven standard years included in the primary-secondary system may be considered for admission if they have achieved a strong academic record and can submit the final official leaving-school certificate. Generally, those who have received Certificates of Education or Leaving School Certificates (i.e. GCSE, SPM, MCE, WASC), must have a minimum of five GCSE equivalent passes in subjects, substantially equivalent to those studied in the U.S., including English.
Along with official copies of academic work, students are encouraged to submit a letter from their headmaster of principal indicating the applicant's rank in class and the total number enrolled. We recommend that freshmen applicants sit for the SAT.
Applicants seeking regular admission whose native language is not English must submit minimum satisfactory scores on one of the following standardized tests. No other measures of English proficiency are accepted by the University of Arkansas for the purpose of gaining admission.
Students presenting these forms of English proficiency will be required to take the University of Arkansas English Language Placement Test upon arrival to campus. The results of this exam will determine appropriate class placement and will have no influence on your admission status.
Applicants whose native language is English are exempt. Native language is defined as the language you grew up speaking in your family, community, and nation. Completing English Composition I and II in a country that lists English as an official language such as India, Pakistan, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Nigeria, or Singapore does not exempt you from the English language proficiency requirement.

All academic programs on our campus are fully accredited by their disciplines’ national accreditation organizations and many are nationally ranked.
The Sam M. Walton College of Business has several highly ranked programs, including:
The Atlantic Monthly designated the university’s creative writing program as one of the top five programs of its kind in the country.
Other graduate programs that ranked nationally—per the U.S. News & World Report survey—are rehabilitation education and research (15th); biological engineering (16th); and industrial engineering (26th).
Our Law School has the only agricultural law master’s degree (LLM) program in the U.S.
The University of Arkansas is classified among the research universities with the highest level of research, measured by number of doctoral degrees, research expenditures and scholarly productivity, according to the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.
Move beyond the books. Life beyond the classroom means joining your friends at campus events, volunteering to help others and ending your day with a swim or workout at the gym. Just don't sleep in the next morning. You'll miss class.
