General Info
Cossatot Community College of the University of Arkansas is an NCA-accredited two-year institution affiliated with the University of Arkansas System. It has campuses in De Queen, Nashville and Ashdown, Arkansas. Located in the foothills of the scenic Ouachita Mountains, Cossatot offers degrees and certificates in more than two dozen fields. The College also offers four Associate's degrees completely online, and has a roster of more than 60 online courses. CCCUA has long had a forward-looking reputation for " causing things to happen' in ways that other colleges and universities would never consider. It is for this attitude that U of A System President Dr. B. Alan Sugg calls Cossatot "The Can-Do College" .Founding and Service AreaThe College was founded in 1975 at De Queen as Cossatot Vocational-Technical School. In 1991, the Arkansas Legislature passed an act that allowed vo-tech schools to become community or technical colleges so they could offer Associate's degrees. Cossatot Technical College was first accredited by NCA in 1998.In 2001, voters in Sevier County passed a quarter-cent sales tax, the last remaining hurdle for Cossatot to join the University of Arkansas System as a community college. Students who take their freshman and sophomore years at Cossatot can transfer to any of the five four-year universities in the System ( UA Fayetteville, Little Rock, Pine Bluff, Monticello and Fort Smith ) to complete their bachelor's degrees. The Arkansas Course Transfer System ( ACTS ) website enables students to determine which courses will transfer from one institution to another.The College's designated service area consists of Sevier and Little River Counties. It shares Howard and Pike Counties with Rich Mountain Community College at Mena and the University of Arkansas Community College at Hope. CCCUA is unique among Arkansas community colleges in that it benefits from a quarter-cent sales tax in three of the four counties it serves. Our actual service area is much larger as we offer so much though Distance Education.Degree and Certificate OfferingsAssociate's level degrees offered at CCCUA involve two years of study ( 60-65 credit hours ). They are intended to give graduates the ability to go straight to work in their chosen field or, in the case of an Associate of Arts degree, prepare students for junior- and senior-level courses at a 4-year institution. Technical Certificates and Certificates of Proficiency also prepare students for careers where technical certificates generally take less than two years to complete, and certificates of Proficiency take one to two semesters.Cossatot has long been a leader in Distance Education. The College won the "Excellence in Distance Education Programming Award" made by the Arkansas Distance Learning Association ( ARDLA ) in 2001 and 2002. Many members of its faculty, both online and in-class, have been recognized at the national level for excellence in teaching, which is the primary focus of community colleges. Online courses at CCCUA have both the rigor of in-room classes and the flexibility of anytime/anywhere learning that is so appealing to many students today.Thinking about a career as a healthcare professional?
