University of Central Arkansas
2020 – 2021 Freshman Admission Appeal Form
Applicants to the University of Central Arkansas who do not meet regular admission requirements may
request further consideration by submitting information which demonstrates their potential for academic
success at UCA. Students may appeal if their academic credentials (test scores and/or grades) have
changed significantly or if they wish to provide additional information that further describes their personal
circumstances. Appeals are evaluated on a case-by-case basis; submission of an appeal does not
guarantee a change in the admission decision.
To be considered for an Admissions Appeal, applicants are required to submit all of the following
documents to the Office of Admissions:
Admissions Appeal Form
Personal Statement: The typed statement should include information explaining why the student
should be considered for admission and the supplemental factor(s) that form the basis of the request.
Personal statements should be one page in length.
Two Letters of Support: Letters of support from school counselors, teachers, employers, and/or other
personal references who can confirm there is reasonable evidence the student can succeed academically
at UCA (please do not include letters from immediate family members).
Updated Official Transcript: This transcript should include grades from the most recently completed
ACT/SAT Scores (or comparable assessment): These may be submitted electronically through ACT
or College Board.
Applicants may also provide any additional documents they feel will support their appeal. Appeal
applicants must have already received an admission decision from UCA in order to appeal. Requests for
individual reviews from applicants who have not received an admission decision will not be processed.
