For the purposes of tuition payment, an out-of-state resident is a person who has not lived in Arkansas for 6 months prior to the beginning of the semester for which they wish to register. A student can show Arkansas residency by presenting any of the following documents at the time of registration for classes, dated 6 months previously:
- Voter registration card
- Receipt for assessment of payment of taxes
- Arkansas Driver’s License
If above documents are not submitted at time of registration, students will be charged out-of-state tuition.
A student on a temporary visa will be classified as a foreign student and will pay Out-of-State tuition and fees. A student who has been granted a permanent visa and has been domiciled in Arkansas for 6 consecutive months following receipt of the permanent visa shall be classified as an Arkansas resident for tuition and fee purposes and will pay In-State tuition and fees.
Students who are 60 years of age, or older, and show proof of age may have the general registration fee waived. This waiver is limited to credit courses only. Children of police officers and firefighters who were killed or permanently disabled in the line of duty in Arkansas are eligible for waiver of tuition and fees for a period of up to 4 years, or until attainment of the age of 25, whichever occurs first.
Students who have not paid their account in full or set up payment arrangements by the deadline will be DROPPED FROM ALL CLASSES. Students who have been dropped for lack of payment will have five business days to re-enroll by paying a $50 LATE ENROLLMENT FEE and all tuition and fees in full upon re-registering.
Payment options are available to students through FACTS Tuition Management. NOTE – Deadlines for setting up payments are not the same as the tuition due date. For information on payment options go to E-Cashier.
