Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Visit Campus

People can tell you how great a place is, but the best way to know whether it's right for you is to see it--and experience it--for yourself. At Arkansas State, we welcome your visit and offer a variety of campus visitation programs to suit your needs.

NOTE: The last regularly scheduled campus visit of the Fall 2014 semester will occur on Wednesday, December 3. Due to final examinations and winter break, available faculty, staff, and students are limited during this time. We will resume campus visits on Monday, January 12.

    We strongly suggest contacting the department of your intended major to schedule a meeting with an Academic Advisor. Because each transfer student has completed different classes, you should plan to bring your unofficial transcripts with you. Prior to your arrival on campus, we encourage you to use our Transfer Equivalency Tool to determine how courses earned at another university will transfer to A-State. If you have specific questions for other offices (i.e. Residence Life, Financial Aid & Scholarships, etc.), please take advantage of your time on campus to set up meetings with representatives from those areas.
