Hear It From Our Students!
Hear It From Our Students!
Cassia Thomas
2020 Graduate - A.A. General Education, A.S. STEM
I love UACCB because when I first came here, I had no idea what I wanted to do. Because of the math instructors here, I realized how much I love math. I think the community college experience is better than going straight to a university because the classes are smaller, which makes it easier for instructors to give you that personalized attention to help you learn what you really want to do with rest of your life. The process to transfer to Lyon has been great. Both my UACCB advisor and the representatives at Lyon have been there to help me and make sure the process goes smoothly.

Rodney Harris
2018 Graduate - CP Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning, TC Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration
The HVAC program at UACCB gave me the knowledge and confidence needed to start a new career in HVAC. My instructors were knowledgeable and helpful in answering questions and explaining mechanical procedures and troubleshooting in HVAC systems. With my new skills and hands-on training, I will work hard to become a great HVAC technician.

Shelby Gottschalk
Current Student - A.A. General Education
UACCB has definitely helped me reach my higher education goals. I wasn’t sure if that was something I could do because of my medical issues and because I have a service dog, but UACCB was there with open arms saying, ‘Yes you can! Let us show you how you can do it!’ UACCB has given me such a wonderful place to learn. I’m really grateful to UACCB for how welcoming and accommodating they’ve been. I can’t wait to take more classes!

Stephanie Bolin
2015 Graduate - A.A. General Education
Without UACCB, I wouldn’t have the study skills I have today, the foundational knowledge I needed in order to succeed and get into a doctoral program, or the connections I have with the amazing faculty and staff. I have also been told in my doctoral program that they can tell I came from a community college because my study techniques are so great!  I am now finishing up my last year of the Occupational Therapy Doctoral Program at ASU-Jonesboro and will graduate with my doctorate in August 2020!

Phillip Reeves
2019 Graduate - A.A.S. Computer Information Systems
There is no doubt in my mind that my internship was the most pivotal part of my education in the world of IT. Without the help of my instructors and support staff at UACCB, this opportunity would not have been possible. Now, I have the skills and experience needed to give me a cutting edge in the workforce.

I.          Overview:

This policy defines the privacy policy for official websites of the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB), addresses collection and use of information in connection with such websites, and describes under what circumstances the college may disclose such information, consistent with Ark. Code § 25-1-114.
II.         Practice:

1) Official University Websites

Except as noted otherwise, the information in this privacy policy applies to all official UACCB websites, which are defined as those administered through the college content management system, such as main departments, divisions, or other units typically reporting to or deemed official by the chancellor, vice chancellors, directors and/or department heads/chairs. These sites comply with the college template, graphics and Web standards as managed by the Communications and Marketing Department and the Information Services Department. Certain official websites may have their own or supplementary privacy policies appropriate to their function or as required by law.
2) Information Collected

UACCB, while reserving the right to monitor communications via its websites for legal, policy or business reasons, including security and functionality, does not monitor the content of communications as a matter of normal business practice. However, the fact that communication occurred (such as when a user visits a UACCB website or utilizes UACCB websites to search for information or submit a form), may be routinely logged as a normal business practice.
 
Common information logged through interaction with UACCB websites includes, but is not limited to, the following:the IP address of the user’s computer;the date and time a user’s computer accessed our site;
the IP address and URL of a referring website;
the page the user requested from the site; the information that a user’s Web browser software sends, which typically identifies the browser software and may also indicate the operating system and type of CPU used in the user’s computer; in the case of email, the sender and recipient's email addresses; andin the case of services provided to you through UACCB websites via forms (e.g., admissions, financial aid requests, job applications), surveys, course-work, etc., personal information you provide in order to process the request, such as name, physical and email addresses, phone numbers, and financial data may be collected and may be retained - if information requested is not entered, the services and/or requests cannot be accomplished online.
