2 Arkansas Colleges Could Lose State Funds

LITTLE ROCK — Two Arkansas colleges will be submitting improvement plans to the state’s Department of Higher Education amid declining enrollment.

Northwest Arkansas Community College and the University of Arkansas Community College fell below the minimum score in performance-based funding, a drop that can lead to losing a portion of funding from the state.

Colleges and universities get their funding mostly from student tuition and fees, state appropriations and private donations, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/2pTse3N ) reported.
