Border County Tuition Waiver

Beginning with the 2012-13 academic year, new and continuing UAMS students from Bowie or Cass Counties in Texas or Texarkana, Texas must complete a brief application form and provide a copy of salary/wage documentation to receive a Border County Out of State Tuition Waiver.  Applicants will provide documentation of total taxable salary/wages for the prior tax year to which he/she is applying, specifically the salary and/or wages earned from Arkansas employers.  However, the tuition waiver will be granted to students regardless of the amount of Arkansas salary and wages earned, as long as the documentation and application are submitted.  All items on the application form must be completed in order for the application to be processed.    After completing the form, present it along with the salary/wage documentation, to the Student Financial Services office using one of the following methods: fax to 501.686.8798; email to; mail to UAMS Bursar’s Office, 4301 West Markham, Slot #758, Little Rock, AR 72205; or drop off at the SFS offices, Administration West 1.106 during business hours or the afterhours dropbox located in the lobby. The SFS Office will notify college registrars of approved waivers.

Please note:  Once approved for the waiver you automatically qualify for the entire academic year.  There is no need to submit a new application.  For example:  If you submit and are approved for the waiver in Fall 2021 you will automatically receive the waiver for the Spring 2022 semester.
