This college has made want I though was impossible dreams come true. The people are friendly and give useful resources. The staff is amazing, very professional and courteous. South Ark is also a convenient location for me because I can work local and manage my children care. The only and biggest complaint that I would think everyone has is the parking spaces. However, there has been available parking spaces lately. I am so grateful and fortunate to have a college this close to home, so if I must walk a distance to get to class it is much worth it. Thank you, South Ark!

South Arkansas Community College located in El Dorado, Arkansas, is the perfect place for an affordable, personalized education. South Ark’s staff is helpful and in my experience, willing to work with any student who needs one on one help with a class. The online classes are very affordable as well and easy to navigate. I enrolled as a high school student to earn concurrent credit, and thanks to South Ark, I will be attending a four-year in-state university already one semester ahead. The majority of students who are not taking classes online or for concurrent credit, are seeking a two-year degree, such as a physical therapy assistant’s degree.
semester 2 with south Arkansas college the advisers are amazing sticking with students to stay on on path for graduation. Professors on the other-hand, they cant' seem to keep from resigning so it seems no matter what I do When school starts back the advisers are have to revamp my whole schedule. I'm a full time student, single mother and working a full time job.
