At A Glance
The University of Arkansas enrolled 20,350 undergraduate students during the fall 2012 semester. Of those, 2,242 students, or 11 percent, were 25 or older, according to Steve Voorhies, university spokesman. The university does not track how many of its students fit the lottery’s definition of a nontraditional student, which is someone who starts college one year or later after graduating high school.
