FAYETTEVILLE – The Sam M. Walton College of Business has added University of Arkansas Cossatot to its “Turn 2 into 4” program that helps students at two-year institutions in Arkansas transition to complete a four-year Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree.

UA Cossatot is the third community college in Arkansas to formally partner with Walton College in the program and the second in the University of Arkansas system.

Students will earn an Associate of Science in Business at UA Cossatot and transition to any of the Walton College majors within the B.S.B.A. degree program, including opportunities for online majors in general business, accounting and supply chain management.

UA Cossatot has its main campus in De Queen and also has campuses in Nashville and Ashdown.

The Walton College also has partnered with North Arkansas College and UA Pulaski Tech, part of the U of A system. Walton College also has a long-standing agreement with Northwest Arkansas Community College (NWACC) — one both campuses are building on to transition into the Turn 2 into 4 program.

Such agreements with two-year institutions are designed to lower costs and help students transition to four-year degrees more easily. The articulation agreement is intended to increase the number of college graduates in Arkansas reduce duplication for courses toward degree completion and provide opportunities for cities and counties in Arkansas to retain talent in their communities through online degree programs.
