ATU Listed Among Top Educational Options for Adults

Adult Learner ATU

Arkansas Tech University has earned recognition as one of America’s best options for non-traditional learners.

ATU is included on the list of Abound’s 2021 top higher education programs for adults.

​Abound is a college guidance system for degree-seeking adults that seeks to connect adults with post-secondary educational options.

The honor applies to offerings on the Russellville and Ozark campuses of Arkansas Tech, many of which are stackable into additional credentials and degrees.

“Rather than focusing on rankings or prestige, we focus on what matters most: flexible classes and services, affordable courses, a range of quality programs and degrees that help your students advance in their field,” said Tyson Schritter, chief operating officer for Abound.

Criteria for the ranking are accessibility, affordability, acceleration and advancement.
