Financial Aid Scholarship Available For This Course: 

In order to qualify for the free tuition scholarship, you must apply for the Arkansas Workforce Challenge (AWC) Scholarship through the Arkansas Department of Higher Education (ADHE). See information in "Step 2" below. 

The Arkansas Office of Skills Development (OSD) provides a 100% tuition free scholarship to any high school graduate who attends UACCB's CDL training and successfully obtains a Class A Commerical Driver's License. 

Complete the following steps to get started!

Step 1: Reserve your seat by registering for the class and holding your spot with a down payment of $75.00. This fee is for application processing and DOT Drug Screening. UACCB will defer payment on the remaining balance of $3,425.00 until the end of the course. Upon successful completion of the Arkansas State Police Class A CDL Practical Driving Exam, UACCB will award a scholarship to make your account balance zero. If you do not successfully complete the Arkansas State Police Class A CDL Practical Driving Exam, full payment is due within 30 days of the end of class. 

Click "Register" and be sure to apply the following Promo Code: "Class A CDL". Once you select "Check Out", then in the upper right corner, you will select "Add promo code". Enter "Class A CDL". If you fail to apply the Promo Code, your credit card will be charged the full course fee of $3,500.00.    

Step 2: Apply for the Arkansas Workforce Challenge Scholarship by creating an account. You must submit all requested documents to ADHE as required. Upon completion of the application and providing necessary documents, you will be notified via email by ADHE, typically within 7-10 business days, that you have been offered the scholarship. You will need to accept the offer to receive up to an $800.00 reimbursement. This scholarship will cover a portion of your tuition. Upon completion of the training course, allow 2-3 weeks for ADHE and the OSD to process your award and provide reimbursement to UACCB Financial Aid. For questions, call 870-612-2082.  

Step 3: The Department of Transportation (DOT) physical is required to obtain a Commercial Driver's License (CDL). Although it is not required prior to taking your written exam, it is recommended that you schedule an appointment with a physician of your choice to get a DOT physical prior to registering for the class. You will be responsible for the cost of the DOT physical. The first week of class will prepare you for the written exam.

Step 4: After registering, you will need to purchase a CDL packet ($50) at any State of Arkansas revenue office. Note: It is to your benefit to have your DOT physical prior to purchasing your CDL packet. To purchase your packet, you will need your original birth certificate and a second form of ID (i.e., driver's license, passport, etc.). In addition, you will be required to pass a DOT drug screen before attempting any behind the wheel exercises. Call 870-612-2082 to verify that your authorization form for the drug screen has been sent to Sherwood Urgent Care. UACCB will cover the cost of the DOT drug screen. Do not attempt a DOT Drug Screen without approval from UACCB.
