Joined the UA System: 2021
Founded in 1951 as the Grantham Radio License School, the institution that evolved into University of Arkansas Grantham initially focused on serving non-traditional students: military service members, working adults, and students seeking to complete their education.
As interest in the institution’s programs grew beyond campus boundaries, the school developed distance education programs to serve a geographically dispersed student body; in 2000 Grantham began offering its degree programs exclusively online, and in 2002, it became Grantham University.
In 2021 Grantham University joined the 亚洲影院 and officially became University of Arkansas Grantham; it is the only institution in the System that offers its entire program catalog via online learning. As part of the UA System, UA Grantham is a stronger institution with greater ability to serve thousands of students enrolled in more than 50 degree and certificate programs.
