Scholarship Stacking Policy
Act 1180 of 1999 prohibits postsecondary institutions from using public funds in a student aid package which exceeds the cost of attendance at that institution. UAHT follows the Arkansas Department of Higher Education regulations by reducing scholarship amounts which cause awards to exceed cost of attendance. Scholarships awarded by UAHT will be reduced before other scholarships. In the absence of direction from private donor, all private funds will be split equally between fall and spring semesters.
