Arkansas Tech University is included among Abound’s Best Colleges for Adults 2022.

The evaluation measured student accessibility, affordability, acceleration and advancement to identify universities and colleges that position adult leaders for degree attainment.

According to Tyson Schritter, chief operating officer for Abound, the organization helps adult learners “find degree completion, graduate, nursing and MBA programs at institutions that have been vetted for the highest quality that are affordable, accelerated and accessible.”

Night and weekend access, childcare opportunities, strong part-time student retention and graduation rates and affordable tuition are among the special considerations Abound took into account when developing its 2022 list of Best Colleges for Adults.
