    School Overview

    The University of Arkansas at Little Rock is a public, four-year institution of higher education located in the capital city of Little Rock, Arkansas. Classes at Little Rock Junior College first took place in 1927 at Little Rock Senior High School. As the school continued to grow, administrators expanded vocational instruction and coursework that targets non-traditional students. By the late 1950s, the school moved to its current campus, and began awarding four-year degrees. The renamed Little Rock University merged with the University of Arkansas in 1969, to become a part of the University of Arkansas System.
