UA-PTC Students

Applying to UA - Pulaski Tech is Free and Easy!

To begin your educational journey at UA-PTC, follow these 7 steps:

STEP 1 - All new, transfer, and returning students (who have not been enrolled in the last two semesters) can apply for admission at www.uaptc.edu/apply. Current students can register for classes in the Campus Portal or schedule an appointment with an academic advisor.

STEP 2 - Provide the required documents needed to UA-PTC. What documents are required? Choose from one of the student types below (applying to UA-PTC as) to see what documents are required.

STEP 3 - After applying for admission, schedule an appointment to meet with an academic advisor or call (501) 812-2220.

STEP 4 - Attend New Student Orientation (NSO). This step is not required but we highly recommend NSO for all first-time, degree or certificate-seeking students as important information about UA-PTC and strategies to be a successful student is provided.

STEP 5 - Activate your Campus Portal / Student e-mail account. After setting up your account, please allow 24 hours before accessing. Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) must be enabled on your device for accessing student e-mail.

STEP 6 - Pay for classes before the drop for non-payment date. Options for making a payment:

  • Payment Options - Students can pay online, in-person, setup a payment plan, pay by mail or pay over the phone.
  • Financial Aid - Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible so aid is available before the term begins. Please note: Non-degree seeking students and visiting students are not eligible for financial aid. Additional FAFSA information (what is required, dos and dont's, and more) is available on our Financial Aid FAQ page. Thinking about applying for a loan to pay for your classes? Before applying for a loan, it's suggested that you explore the different student grants and scholarship opportunities available which offer money that doesn't need to be paid back.

STEP 7 - Purchase textbooks and course materials through the UA-PTC bookstore website or in-person at the Main Campus. If a textbook is not available, check out Follett's Access Textbook Program to purchase digital textbooks at a reduced cost. Students will see a significant savings on course materials — up to 75 percent.
