AT ATU, First IS A WAY OF LIFE
First class. First Semester. First year. First step toward your new life. We understand that you only get what you put in, and we’re here to help you get everything. Your thirst for knowledge. Your determination. Our map to success. You’ve got the want-to, we’ve got the know-how — let’s build your future.
We offer degree pathways that fit your lifestyle. Take class in-person, online, or a blend of the two - we know life doesn’t stop just because you’re earning a degree. No matter the stage of life you are in, the Admissions office will help find the path that’s right for you.
The ATU culture is about care and compassion. Whether students, faculty, staff, alumni or community - we’re always looking out for one another. Our care and compassion in education help us build each other up in becoming well-rounded and productive members of society.
ATU offers scholarships and a helpful financial aid staff who are ready to help you navigate funding your degree. ATU is a great investment in your future - for every dollar spent, our students receive five back in return through increased lifetime earnings. That’s why we’re ranked #1 in Arkansas and #5 in the nation for students’ upward social mobility.
BEING FIRST DOESN'T MEAN BEING ALONE
Being first is hard. If it was easy everyone would do it. But it's not easy, you’re not everyone, and ATU isn’t like any other university. Stand on our shoulders. Look toward your future. Forge your own path. Be first.
