U of A System to Offer Discounted eVersity Tuition to CAA Employees, Family Members

The University of Arkansas System is now offering a 5% tuition discount to CAA employees and/or their family members who are currently attending or who plan to enroll in the U of A’s eVersity. This new “eVersity Alliance”—being made available to member agencies in the Arkansas Community Action Agencies Association (ACAAA)—is part of an undertaking by association Chief Operations Officer Terry Bearden to develop new partnerships that will benefit ACAAA member agencies and their staff.

The University of Arkansas’s eVersity is “a 100 percent-online institution created … to serve students who are unable to access traditional higher education campuses.”  Among the eVersity staff are academic advisers able to provide assistance with applying for financial aid and determining whether previously earned college credits are transferable.

Those interested in participating in the “eVersity Alliance” should contact ACAAA Chief Operations Officer Terry Bearden at or, by phone, at (501) 372-0807 to receive the tuition discount code.
