Did You Know?

  • Established in 1961 as the state’s second vocational-technical school, UACCM has served the area for 50 years as an educational institution, 20 years as a community college, and 10 years as part of the University of Arkansas System.
  • UACCM is the sixth largest two-year college in the state (based on annualized FTE) and the largest two year college in the UA system.
  • UACCM’s enrollment has increased since our merger with the U of A System from an enrollment of 1,290 students in the fall of 2001 to almost 2300 students by the fall of 2013. 
  • UACCM has significantly increased the number of awards (certificates and degrees) for the last seven years from 252 total awards in 2004-5 to 910 for 2011-12.
  • UACCM has great support from the Oil and Gas Industry and has the only Associate of Applied Science Degree in Petroleum Technology in the state.  Total scholarship donations from the Fayetteville Shale Scholarship Foundation (FSSF) to UACCM has exceeded $600,000 while the college has also received significant donations of equipment and other funding for the program.
  • In response to industry needs, UACCM is currently upgrading all technical program curricula, working on increasing business and industry partnerships, and working with consultants to develop a plan for a capital campaign for a new economic development center to expand the college’s technical programs and enrollments and better work with business/industry recruitment and development.
  • UACCM’s graduate survey from the fall of 2012 showed that ninety-seven percent (97%) of the graduates who responded were highly satisfied/satisfied with UACCM in general, ninety-three percent (93%) of those responding stated they were highly satisfied/satisfied with the quality of instruction received, and ninety-four percent (94%) of those responding were highly satisfied/satisfied with faculty enthusiasm.
  • UACCM has great university partnerships to allow completion of bachelor’s degrees with students taking most of their classes on the UACCM campus or online.  Students finishing an AAS degree at UACCM can complete a BAS degree from UAFS by taking their junior and senior year classes via compressed video at UACCM or online.  UACCM also has an agreement with UCA’s teacher education program (P-4) to take their junior year classes on the UACCM campus.
  • The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Commission on Early Childhood Associate Degree Accreditation has granted accreditation to UACCM’s Early Childhood Development Associate Degree Program. UACCM is one of twelve associate degree programs sponsored by eight institutions of higher education throughout the nation to receive the accreditation in 2011, and one of only three two-year colleges in the state of Arkansas with this accreditation.  
  • UACCM will soon be connected to the Arkansas Research & Education Optical Network (ARE-ON), a fiber optic network that will provide nearly unlimited internet bandwidth for colleges and universities across Arkansas. The project is part of a larger Arkansas e-Link grant awarded to UAMS in partnership with AATYC. All 22 state community colleges will be connected with the four-year universities and over 400 rural health-care facilities through high-speed internet access.
  • The National Center for Construction, Education and Research (NCCER) has awarded the welding program with accreditation.
  • NCCER is a not-for-profit education foundation created to develop standardized construction and maintenance curricula and assessments with portable, industry-recognized credentials.  All state-funded secondary welding programs are adopting the NCCER curriculum, and as a result, many of the two-year colleges in Arkansas have decided to align with this curriculum. This certification is a common industry standard and a new accreditation for the UACCM welding program that will make our graduates more desirable to future employers.
