To be eligible for library privileges and remote access to library resources, students must be enrolled in at least one hour of credit or be pre-registered for the following semester.

If you need to retain library privileges for a short time while you complete theses or other academic requirements, you can ask your college or the Graduate School to grant you  "Affiliate" status in the UAConnect student information system.  Extensions and length of time granted are determined by academic departments, colleges, and the Graduate School, not by the library.

Once your extension is approved, and your student record has been updated in UAConnect, you will then need to request short-term reinstatement of library privileges at the Main Circulation Desk in Mullins Library or by contacting  

When logging into resources or your library account as an affiliate, you may need to use your last name and the nine-digit University ID number, rather than your former UARKusername and password.
