College Costs

Students in Arkansas saw the cost of attending public colleges in the state increase by 27% over a five year period, from the 2006-2007 to the 2011-2012 school years, according to documentation from the College Board. The Southern Good Faith fund published a report in 2008 which cites low income as a major reason why state residents are unable to afford college. In 2011, 41% of working families in Arkansas were low-income, and inflation and dropping rates of state support for higher education have driven college costs upward and out of reach for many.

College Enrollment

Despite the high tuition increases between 2000 and 2010, Arkansas has seen the number of individuals enrolling in colleges and universities increase by 53.1%. This increase dwarfs other states, which typically saw increases of 20-30%. An article in Inside Higher Education notes that, nationwide, colleges are predicting just a 14% increase between 2014 and 2022.

    • The Aspiring Scholars Matching Grant Program: This program allows account owners in the GIFT plan to save even more for college; these grants are worth up to $500 per year. There is an income limit of $60,000 adjusted gross income for an account owner to qualify for this program.
