A-State Closed on Jan. 16 due to winter precipitation.

Arkansas State University is closed today, Tuesday, Jan. 16, due to winter precipitation. All winter response staff members are requested to report to their duty stations.

Overnight, snow fall made conditions for students, faculty and staff hazardous.

"Our administrative team determined the snowfall was going to be heavier than forecast and while today was scheduled to be the first day of class for the spring 2018 semester, I've decided it is best that we cancel classes for today," Chancellor Kelly Damphousse said.

All classes at the Jonesboro and Paragould locations are cancelled. Online classes continue.

While offices and classes are closed, university residential life areas continue to operate to support the on-campus student population.

International Wires

Arkansas State University has teamed up with peerTransfer to offer an innovative and streamlined way to make international wires for tuition payments. It's fast, simple and cost effective from any country anytime.

  • Saves money - using Flywire will save you hundreds of dollars on each tuition payment vs. traditional bank wires

  • Simple - no more back-and-forth with the school and the bank trying to get all the information you need to make a wire payment

  • Quick - no more waiting and wondering if your payment has posted to your account. Flywire will keep you and A-State informed along the way.

How it works:

  • Flywire accepts payments from any country - typically in your home currency. We work to secure your wholesale foreign exchange rates, which are significantly lower than rates offered by traditional banks.

  • Visit astate.flywire.com, enter your tuition amount, and immediately see how much money you will save. Once you initiate payment on www.flywire.com, you will receive detailed instructions on how to transfer funds to A-State. Flywire will keep you informed at every step in the process, including when funds reach your student account.

  • Payments are posted to your student account much quicker than they would be if you were using a regular bank to pay. And you can be assured that you will never have a short-payment due to unexpected transfer fees or bank charges.
