Full-Time and Part-Time Student Registration

Admission Requirements

FULL-TIME or PART-TIME students seeking a certificate or an associate degree:

  1. Complete a PCCUA Application for Admission.  
  2. Provide results of ACT or NG ACCUPLACER testing. Scores are used to determine placement in English, reading, and math. Students enrolling must submit ACT scores (19 or above in English and math) or take the NG ACCUPLACER placement test administered at the College. PCCUA administers the NG ACCUPLACER test on a daily basis. Appointments may be made with Ronda Golden at (870) 946-3506, ext. 1602 (DeWitt), Vickie Gregory at (870) 338-6474, ext. 1134 (Helena-West Helena) or Sonya Allen-Jenkins at (870) 673-4201, ext. 1828 (Stuttgart).

  3. Provide a copy of an official high school transcript with graduation date and a stamped school seal, General Educational Development (GED) scores, and/or official college transcript(s). Please request that the institution mail the transcript directly to the PCCUA Office of Admissions, P.O. Box 785, Helena, AR 72342. If transcript is in a maiden name, instruct high school to indicate current last name on form. Click here for a transcript request form to have your transcript sent to PCCUA.
  4. Provide immunization record. Arkansas State Law requires all students born on or after January 1, 1957, to provide proof of immunity against measles, mumps, and rubella. Students must have proof of two MMR vaccines against measles, mumps, and rubella.

    Serologic testing is only applicable to Hepatitis B virus, Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Varicella. Any individual who has immunity to Hepatitis B virus, Measles, Mumps, Rubella and/or Varicella, as documented by appropriate serological testing, shall not be required to have the vaccine for that disease.

    A copy of the serological test should be submitted to the Arkansas Department of Health, Immunization Section, along with a letter requesting that the serological test be accepted as proof of immunity in lieu of receiving vaccine for the disease indicated on the serological test. After review by the Medical Director, Immunization Section, a letter indicating approval or denial will be sent to the individual, parent, or guardian, and it will be that person's responsibility for informing the childcare facility, school, or college/university. For approvals, annual approval is not required, and a copy of the letter will be placed in the student's permanent file. For denials, the student must receive the required immunization or request an exemption.
  5. To apply for financial aid, contact Ronda Golden at (870) 946-3506, ext. 1602 (DeWitt), Barbra Stevenson at (870) 338-6474, ext. 1160 (Helena-West Helena), or Valerie Colvin at (870) 673-4201, ext. 1806 (Stuttgart).
