High School Guidance Counselors

It takes cooperation and collaboration to deliver the information that high school students need to make good decisions about higher education. At the University of Central Arkansas we count on the support we receive from high school guidance counselors who share admissions and other process information with prospective students. We hope the information here helps to make your job easier.

Bear Facts Days

Bear Facts Day is a wonderful opportunity for students and their families to come out and see what UCA is all about. They will be able to tour classrooms, academic areas, lab spaces, housing, and also get a chance to talk with current UCA students, faculty, and staff. These events are currently being offered five times a year. Students can call the Office of Admissions at 800-243-8245 or visit this website for more information and to secure their reservation.


Tours can be scheduled through the Office of Admissions and run  Monday through Friday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. when classes are in session. This is a great way for students and their families to check out UCA firsthand and meet faculty, current students, and staff while touring our beautiful campus. Summer tours are available at 10 a.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday when classes are in session. All tours leave from the Office of Admissions, Bernard 101. Please have your students call 800-243-8245 if they are interested in scheduling a student guided tour.

You can schedule your visit online or if you have a special tour request, please contact the Office of Admissions at 1-800-243-8245.
