Arkansas State University

# "No counseling fee charged because applications are submitted through an Edwise International partner organization"


Arkansas State University enjoys a reputation as a quality regional institution of higher education and is recognized for offering special services to the people of the Arkansas Delta. It is the only comprehensive public university located in this region. Dedicated to teaching, research and service, the university provides students with the broad educational foundations that help develop critical thinking and analytical skills, decision-making capabilities, and communication skills. Dr. Les Wyatt is president of the Arkansas State University System, and Dr. Robert L. Potts became chancellor of the ASU-Jonesboro campus on Nov. 15, 2006.


This institution was founded in Jonesboro in 1909 by the Arkansas Legislature as a regional agricultural training school. It began offering a two-year college program in 1918, then became "First District Agricultural and Mechanical College" in 1925. A four-year degree program was begun in 1930, and then A & M College became "Arkansas State College" in 1933. The Arkansas Legislature elevated the college to university status and changed the name to Arkansas State University in 1967. Today, the institution has more than 59,000 alumni.


Arkansas State University's commitment to excellence in higher education is demonstrated by its accreditation by The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association, as well as 18 specialized accrediting organizations. In addition, the university holds membership in several national organizations which support the highest educational standards.


ASU has grown significantly over the past 20 years; the Jonesboro campus enrolment in the fall of 1981 was 7,448; five years later it was 8,526, and by 1991 it had grown to 9,717. Five years ago the fall enrolment at Jonesboro stood at 10,309. Today, because of the close partnerships between the campuses, ASU reports a combined enrolment for its system of campuses. Total system enrolment in the fall of 2006 was 17,401.


ASU offers bachelor's degree programs, master's degree programs and upper level courses through ASU degree centres at ASU-Beebe, ASU-Mountain Home, and three other cities -- Blytheville, Forrest City and West Memphis -- where partnership agreements have been established in cooperation with the local community colleges. ASU also operates instructional sites at nearby Paragould, in Greene County, and at Little Rock Air Force Base.

    Doctoral Graduate Assistantships Waiver. All Doctoral Graduate Assistant positions carry a tuition fellowship that includes tuition charged at the in-state rate and 100% of the tuition and any applicable college support assessment fee waived for all ASU courses taken by Doctoral Graduate Assistants.


    A doctoral graduate assistant (GA) is (1) a student in good standing in one of the doctoral programs, (2) is enrolled for a minimum of nine graduate credit hours in the fall or spring semesters or six graduate credit hours in the summer term, and (3) has been approved for a GA position by the graduate dean. Doctoral GAs will not be required to pay the tuition and any applicable college support assessment fee portion of their enrollment expenses. The tuition and any applicable college support assessment fee will be covered by an outside agency/foundation or Arkansas State University. In all cases, ASU covers only that portion of the tuition that is not paid by a supporting agency. It is ASU procedure that all grant/contract or agency proposals submitted or accepted by ASU must include GA tuition and college support assessment fee budgeted to the extent the agency/foundation permits.


    Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) Waiver. This program provides a fellowship stipend to minority students pursuing a doctoral degree. All tuition and fee costs are waived. For more information, visit the SREB web site:


    Military Service Waiver. All Arkansas residents and their dependents serving in the United States military living out of state are eligible for resident tuition rates. All other United States military personnel and their dependents stationed in the state are also eligible for resident tuition rates.


    Academic Common Market. Students from states that make up the Academic Common Market are eligible for out-of-state fee waivers for approved degree programs. Each state has a coordinator who must certify eligibility for any student from that state who wishes to enroll in degree programs in the market. Certification is by letter from the state coordinator to the director of Admissions.


    The ASU Jonesboro coordinator is the dean of the Graduate School. The State of Arkansas coordinator is Delores Logan from the Arkansas Department of Higher Education. The phone number is 501-371-2061 and fax number is 501-371-8000. Information about the Academic Common Market is available at


    Native American Waiver. Students who are descendants from Tribes native to Arkansas and Native Americans who passed through Arkansas on the Trail of Tears are eligible for resident tuition rates. The rationale for this is based in the history of Native Americans and the recognition from that knowledge of history that the Native American population of Arkansas was greatly diminished by historical government actions (such as “The Trail of Tears”). Many Native Americans, who would now reside in Arkansas, reside in other areas because the federal government forced their ancestors to move to reservations. BIA card, Tribal card, or a written stated from a Tribal leader must be provided that an individual is a Native American. Tribes on the Trail of Tears were: Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole. This policy was approved by the Board of Trustees on April 19, 1999.


    National Student Exchange Program. NSE is a network for inter-university exchange within the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. While on exchange, the student will pay their normal tuition to their home campus or pay the in-state or in-province tuition to the host college or university. Students who currently pay non-resident tuition at their home campus should expect to continue to do so while on exchange. There are two programs for each student depending on which college or university they are attending: Plan A (Host Payment) - Under this plan, the student will pay the resident (in-state/in-province) tuition and fees directly to the host campus. Plan B (Home Payment) - Under this plan, the student will pay the normal tuition and fees to their home institution.


    National Collegiate Network (NCN) Waiver. In an effort to recruit international students from Japan, the ASU Board of Trustees approved Board Resolution 08-03 on March 7, 2009, which waives half of the tuition costs for international students.
