Tuition and Fees

When a student registers for classes, a bill will be generated. The student is responsible for payment of this bill within the time schedule set in the academic calendar. In some cases the payment will be due at the same time a student registers for classes.

Any financial aid for which a student may qualify will first be applied as payment or partial payment for this bill. In some cases, the student may receive a refund later in the semester. Other payment options include cash, check, money order, credit card and installment plan.

Questions regarding payment should be directed to the Business Office. If payment arrangements are not made prior to the due date, late payment fees may apply.

A student’s residency status for tuition purposes is determined at the time of admission according to the policy established by the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees. “In-district” residents are legal residents of Independence County. The student shall be admitted to UACCB as "in-state" for fee purposes if, at the time of admission, they have established a bona fide domicile in Arkansas and have resided continuously in this state in that bona fide domiciliary status for at least six consecutive months prior to the beginning of the term or semester for which fees are paid.
