Sixty Years and Counting . . .

The Graduate School at Arkansas State University has been offering graduate programs to our students for 60 years and are so proud of what  they have accomplished with the degrees they have attained with us.

We work together with our students to help enrich their lives locally, nationally, as well as globally.  The Graduate School believes that graduate study should be viewed as part of a well-rounded life experience and offers many programs to those seeking to achieve their educational goals. 

Graduate students are an integral part of our research, teaching, and service mission at A-State.  Our diverse community of faculty and graduate students makes significant contributions and serves as the backbone of the university's academic and research enterprise.

Graduate School Campus Tour

For Graduate Students wanting to visit the A-State campus, please contact us at gradsch@astate.edu to schedule a date, at least a week in advance.  Our campus tours typically are scheduled to take place on Fridays.  Our Student-led Walking Tour of our campus is approximately 30 to 40 minutes in length, weather permitting. (Tours may not be available during the Summer Sessions).

The tour includes our Student Union, Red Wolf Fitness facility, Academic Buildings, and the Dean B. Ellis Library Building.  After your tour, you may want to visit our Arkansas State Museum located inside the Library Building, or try one of the food court options in the Student Union.

Visits with program directors are not a part of the Graduate School Campus Tour and will need to be scheduled separately with that department directly, if desired.  You are strongly encouraged to bring unofficial transcripts to those department visits, if scheduled, for a more knowledgeable visit with them.

Tuition Fellowships

A student at ASUWith a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher, residents of any U.S. state or territory qualify for a fellowship reducing tuition to the in-state rate of an Arkansas resident. Students must be enrolled in at least 6 hours for Fall and Spring semesters, and at least 3 hours in Summer terms to qualify.

International students pay a reduced tuition rate that is twice the in-state amount plus a fixed international student fee.
