Chancellor's Ambassador

About Us

The Chancellor's Ambassador organization is an affiliate of the Office of Admissions. Ambassadors serve as official campus hosts to prospective students and their families. The primary role of the Ambassador will be to give tours, assist in recruitment events and provide a welcoming environment and provide a welcoming environment to guests.

Campus visits are available for prospective students Monday-Thursday at 10:00 am and Friday at 10:00 am and 1:30 pm. These campus visits include a presentation followed by a tour given by our ambassadors. Ambassadors will also assist at large-scale admissions events and any other event hosted by the Office of Admissions. These events could range from campus preview days to yield events.

Serving as an ambassador is a great opportunity and privilege. Students who serve as ambassadors get the chance to increase their self-confidence, polish their leadership skills and learn to better serve others. Ambassadors also learn more about A-State and make connections as they interact with faculty, staff, other ambassadors and students.

SELECTION

Students will represent a cross-section of the student body and must meet the following criteria in order to be eligible:

Minimum Qualifications for Membership

  1. Full-time undergraduate student (12 credit hours per semester)
  2. Must have completed two full academic semesters at time of application (24 credit hours)
  3. Minimum 3.0 Grade Point Average
  4. Free of Disciplinary Action

Continuing Minimum Qualifications for Membership

Once chosen as an Ambassador, a student will remain an Ambassador throughout the school year, unless they choose to leave the program by written notice to the Ambassador Advisor. The following minimum qualifications will be required to remain an active member:

  1. Full-time undergraduate student (12 credit hours per semester)
  2. Maintain a 3.0 or above Grade Point Average
  3. Free of Disciplinary Action

If an ambassador fails to meet the Continuing Minimum Qualifications and/or does not adequately fulfill the requirements of a Chancellor's Ambassador (as outlined in the CA Manual), the ambassador will be removed from the program.

Current Chancellor's Ambassadors will reapply each year to continue in their role. Re-hiring of an individual will be based on performance as a CA and on the hiring process.
