   Important Information

As part of the REU application process, we ask that you apply for admission to the University of Arkansas at the same time. Your UA application information will be held until it is known whether or not you are selected to attend a 2019 REU program. If chosen as an REU participant, your admission process will be expedited as your information will already be available for processing.

You may use this link to access the UA admission application. Detailed instructions on how to fill this out may be found here.

NOTE: If you are a current UA student applying for the REU program, you don’t need to apply to the UA for admission. Complete the REU application only. The Office of Undergraduate Research will assist in enrolling current students in the REU course.
