The path to success begins with a school that is with you every step of the way, like UAM College of Technology - McGehee. Here, you will experience a rigorous academic environment against the backdrop of a small campus setting. We offer several areas of study, an open exchange with faculty, teachers who know you by name, and a diversity of experience.
The University of Arkansas at Monticello College of Technology-McGehee, formerly Great Rivers Technical Institute, is a public two-year post-secondary institution that provides academic and occupational/technical programs, services, and resources for the residents of a seven-county service area. In September of 1975 classes opened on campus at 1609 East Ash in McGehee.
In the fall of 2002, meetings began in earnest regarding the potential merger of Great Rivers Technical Institute with an institution of higher education. Effective July 1, 2003, Great Rivers Technical Institute became a campus of the University of Arkansas at Monticello. This merger has proven to greatly benefit the college's ability to offer expanded services and more comprehensive educational opportunities.
