LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – A four-year college degree is expensive, but now the University of Arkansas at Little Rock is partnering with Pulaski Tech to allow "fast track" bachelor's degrees and cheaper tuition.

Students will attend Pulaski Tech for two years to get an associate's degree, then transfer to the Little Rock campus to get a bachelor's degree in two years as well.

“I am very excited that UA Little Rock Graduate School, in collaboration with the colleges, has created this new pathway via early entry programs for our undergraduate students to secure advanced degrees in less time and less cost,” said Dr. Abhijit Bhattacharyya, interim dean of the UA Little Rock Graduate School.

To be accepted to an early entry program, applicants must have a minimum 3.2 GPA, must submit applications to the graduate program and the UA Little Rock Graduate School, and must complete an early entry program form.

44 bachelor degrees are available. Students enrolled can also ride Rock Region Metro for free.
