At the University of Arkansas – Fort Smith, you’re never just a number. We pride ourselves on being large enough to make a difference in our world, but small enough that every student can make an impact. We keep our classes small so you know your faculty, who are experts in their fields, and we make sure our campus feels like home to every Lion.
Located in the second-largest city in Arkansas, Fort Smith isn’t just where we live, it’s where we grow. With a rich history and a vibrant future, the opportunities to develop your skills at UAFS extend far beyond academics, with opportunities to work alongside world-famous artists, CEOs of fortune 500 companies, and award winning scholars, without ever leaving the River Valley.
At UAFS, you’ll get the education and experience you need to turn your ambition into reality, at the lowest cost in the state.
Embrace your potential. Join our pride.
We know paying for college is difficult. We’re proud to offer the lowest tuition in Arkansas right out of the gate. With federal student aid, expansive scholarships through UAFS and the UAFS Foundation, and a fixed-tuition guarantee if you join the UAFS Promise, funding your education is possible.
The UAFS story is best told by the students who are living it day-in and day-out. Take a tour, learn about our beautiful campus, sustainable buildings and award-winning arboretum, and hear first-hand from our University Student Ambassadors what being a Lion is really all about.
