Arkansas State remains closed on Wednesday, Feb. 1

Arkansas State University will remain closed on Wednesday, Feb. 1, due to a major winter storm.

With approximately a half inch of ice accumulation from overnight sleet, temperatures hovering in the high 20s and another round of wintery mix predicted for Tuesday afternoon, all on-campus classes are cancelled for Feb. 1, and all academic and business offices remain closed.

For Wednesday, the following on-campus services will operate under their established, abbreviated hours:

  • The Reng Student Union will open for on-campus student usage at 8 a.m., closing at 8 p.m.
  • Dining Services will operate on brunch hours.

The following facilities will be closed:

  • The Dean B. Ellis Library (online resources available 24/7)
  • Red WOLF Center

With the wintery mix forecast to end on Wednesday and a potential warming above 32 degrees, an evaluation of campus roads and surfaces will be made on Wednesday to determine if campus can re-open for regular business for Feb. 2.

UpSkill is an online learning opportunity administered by Arkansas State University for high school students who desire to develop a variety of in-demand job skills. This program offers students an affordable, flexible and convenient learning experience to develop skills to expand their future opportunities in a growing digital world.

Each program will be taught online in seven-week increments. Students will receive 9 college credit hours upon completion of the program.

The Arkansas Governor's Office has provided the Arkansas Public School Resource Center (APSRC) with a grant to enroll up to 250 high school students in the A-State UpSkill Program for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Public schools interested in enrolling students for this one-of-a-kind program are asked to contact the APSRC office to complete a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). Once the MOU is completed, a school representative - either a school counselor or other designee - will need to help the student complete A-State’s application for admission.

To request an MOU, call APSRC at (501)492-4300 or email jketcham@apsrc.net.

Contact Concurrent Enrollment Programs for admission and registration details at (870)680-8365 or CEP@AState.edu.
