University of Arkansas – Pulaski Technical College (or UA–PTC) is a technical college located in North Little Rock, Arkansas, United States. The school is a part of the University of Arkansas System, and mainly serves the Central Arkansas region, along with Little Rock to the south. The school maintains satellite campuses throughout Pulaski and Saline Counties.

Its main campus is located along a bluff overlooking the Arkansas River in the western part of North Little Rock, northwest of the Eugene J. Towbin Healthcare Center VA facility. The school also maintains a secondary campus on the southwest side of Little Rock along Interstate 30, which includes a separate school focused on the culinary arts and hospitality fields.[9]

It holds a Higher Learning Commission accreditation[10], which was folded into that organization after the dissolution of the North Central Association in 2014. The school merged with the University of Arkansas System on February 1, 2017.[11]

In 2015 Pulaski Technical College tried to refinance bonds as part of a plan to increase revenue and increase enrollment.[12]
