Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I apply?

Ideally, you should apply at the beginning of the semester before you want to transfer. For example, if you wanted to begin attending classes in the fall you should apply in January or February. (However, A-State will admit students all the way up until the Friday before school starts for a new semester so don’t hesitate to apply if you miss this suggested timeline for application).

How can I request transfer information?

Please email transfernow@astate.edu and request information. We will respond asap!

How do I schedule a visit to come see 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. www.astate.edu/a/recruitment/visit-campus/

Can I transfer for the spring semester?

Yes, A-State allows transfer admission for Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.

No, the application fee is waived for transfer students transferring from ASU Beebe, ASU Newport, ASU-Mountain Home, and ASU Mid-South.
