At a Glance

The University of Arkansas System eVersity is a 100 percent-online institution created by the UA Board of Trustees in March 2014 to serve students who are unable to access traditional higher education campuses. The core principles of the institution include providing high-quality courses, affordable tuition and workforce-relevant degree programs, along with promoting student success in programs. Currently in its planning stages, eVersity will begin offering classes in partnership with existing UA System institutions in late 2015.

The mission of eVersity will be to provide high-quality, accessible, affordable, online education relevant to the modern workplace. Faculty from across the UA System will develop and deliver rigorous certificate and degree programs that utilize rich data analytics to enhance student success and achievement. A commitment to continual improvement of the craft of teaching through practice and scholarship and to serving our public communities by providing timely, interesting and useful educational material are hallmarks of eVersity.
