Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Degree Completion Options

Students wishing to live on-campus or take some face-to-face classes (may choose all classes online) will be considered a traditional Arkansas State University Jonesboro student. This means tuition will be based on state/country of residency and all fees will be assessed.

Students not living on or near the university and who wish to complete the course of study completely online will be considered an online student in Disaster Preparedness & Emergency Management and may opt for the online tuition and fees. Tuition for this option is not based on state/country of residency and the fees are limited to library and technology. 

All DPEM majors will be asked to sign a form indicating which degree completion option they have chosen. Once the option is selected all tuition and fees will be based on that option. Students will not be able to change or mix and match courses within the two options.
