At Arkansas State University, we produce more than graduates—we combine the theory with the practice to create innovators and leaders of tomorrow.
With 11 colleges representing all major academic disciplines, a student population of more than 14,000 and 700 faculty, Arkansas State is a global center of learning for some of the most important emerging technologies and new sciences shaping the future of our world.
Learning beyond the classroom
Learning at A-State begins in the classroom, but it almost always leads into laboratories or to stages, galleries and off-campus job internships and co-ops that expose students to real-world challenges and experiences.
The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) is an independent corporation and one of two commission members of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA).
The HLC accredits, and thereby grants membership in the Commission and in the NCA, degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in the North Central region.
