UACCH Partners with Arkansas High School Beginning Fall of 2011
June 23, 2011 by Casey Curtis

The University of Arkansas Community College at Hope is honored to announce a partnership with Texarkana Arkansas School District to offer college classes this fall semester on the Arkansas High School campus. This expanded partnership represents a significant commitment to address the higher education needs of both traditional and nontraditional Miller County students. This effort demonstrates that UACCH continually strives to expand opportunities to all counties within its primary service area in Southwest Arkansas.

The partnership will offer easier access for Miller County students and allow them to pursue a higher education through the use of the numerous Arkansas programs designed to help students complete a degree. Programs such as the Academic Challenge “Lottery” Scholarship, Career Pathways Initiative, and the numerous private scholarships available through the UACCH Foundation are helping remove the obstacles that have kept many from pursuing a higher education.

UACCH Chancellor Chris Thomason said,“UACCH is focused on helping everyone access a higher education. We are really pleased with the development of this partnership with Arkansas High which will allow us to better serve the students in our service area. This is a great day for higher education in Southwest Arkansas, and I look forward to the benefits to our students and our region.”

You are fool.
When enrollment drops the college loses thousands of dollars. Tuition will rise and Programs will be closed.

Thanks you Tc Board for all your foolish drama.

For me, it was a good rural public school. Then there was my undergraduate and graduate degrees.

How's your GED working out for you?

I see they raised the out of district tuition. That is not good for Arkansas side students. Mollie Beth is like the government. Get the government involved in anything and it goes to pot.

The TC Board was able to do dumb things without suffering substantial consequences because they had a monopoly. Competition can punish organizations (public and private) when they make mistakes and the general consumer benefits. No business likes competition and I expect the two schools will try to not compete in their offerings but some things just can’t be helped. Students are unlikely to care much about the petty politics of board machinations but those things have consequences in operational efficiencies and product offerings/availability that students will care about. An organization unable to rein in a loose cannon will shoot themselves and a free(er) market will punish the business.

UACCH is a pissant poduck community college. But it does have a pretty campus.

This is a big blow to TC's funding. It means the high school concurrent enrollment will go to UACCH, too.

The neat thing for Arkansas students, it will help with the transition to Fayetteville, where many students from both sides of state line want to go.

I doubt that. idiot. I guess with a name of "bulldog" you must be one of the bozos that work or teach out there.

TC is already gone done so far, it can never pull itself out. new prez or not.
Poor students going this fall can only suffer. Many will probably want their tuition back.
Students!!! if you are reading this, go to Arkansas side to get a proper education.

What goes around comes around. Will be glad to see Molly...... "OUT OF A JOB"....... Amazing what
collateral damage she caused; her and Randy Moore..... meaner than junk yard dogs.

But the upside, Arkansas side will prosper now.

Goodbye TC and all you MORON school board idiots. Building for lease?
