NorthWest Arkansas Community College to be the first college to replicate OLS!
Arkansas Community College will be the first college to replicate OLS. Their biggest hurdle yet, differential
tuition, was approved unanimously by the Board of Trustees on November 10. Dr.
Gates stated, “The Board expressed great interest in the program and any
reservations about the cost were outweighed by the compelling need in the
community. At the same time, we remain aware of the very real challenges
the tuition rate may present to some families. To that end, we will be
working to make sure all interested students and parents know that admitted
students who meet federal financial aid criteria (need) will be eligible for
federal financial aid because they are “degree seeking” students. We will
continue exploring other options to make sure cost is not a prohibitive factor
for students in the program.”
