Admissions Events

We want you to feel at home at Central Arkansas!  The Office of Admissions and Enrollment Services hosts a number of opportunities for you to visit our beautiful campus and learn how we may serve you.

Campus Tours

Due to COVID-19 concerns and to practice social distancing as advised by UCA President Houston Davis and the CDC, we have suspended campus tours through April 30.  We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and may extend the suspension of tours, as needed.

However, you can still hangout with our Admissions staff virtually!  In place of our daily tours, we are hosting Virtual Meetings Monday – Friday at 10 am and 1 pm.  An admissions counselor will be available for a full hour so you can ask questions and learn more about becoming a UCA BEAR!

Questions about your application, housing, degree programs, or something else?  Sign up for a Virtual Meeting today at uca.edu/admissions/virtual-meeting.

You can also still SEE our beautiful campus virtually!  Check out our virtual tour online to see all UCA has to offer.

We strongly encourage you to practice social distancing by calling our office at (501) 450-3128 or emailing us at admissions@uca.edu.
