Welcome to The University of Arkansas at Monticello
at uam, opportunity is a word we've used throughout our history. uam has, and always will, represent opportunity to those seeking a higher education and a better life.
many of our students are the first in their families to attend college. some simply sought a close, familial learning community where they can focus on achieving their academic goals, while others are non-traditional students who have decided to take advantage of the opportunity to change careers or complete a dream that began years ago. the university is constantly exploring and developing new opportunities to help you obtain a higher education, including new degree options available through our colleges of technology in crossett and mcgehee.
as a comprehensive system of postsecondary education institutions in southeast arkansas, our primary goal is to serve the needs of our students through teaching, research and public service. as you search our website and get to know us, we hope you’ll become part of a great tradition!
