Registration Stations Open to Prompt Early Registration


JONESBORO – To facilitate student registration for the fall semester, academic departments and other key offices at Arkansas State University will host special “Registration Stations” starting today, Monday, March 26.

Undergraduate Studies is leading the initiative to encourage students to register early.

“It’s important to remember these are not advising stations, but locations to assist and streamline registration for students who have already visited advisers,” said Nikesha Nesbitt, associate director for undergraduate studies.  “The goal is to assist as many students as possible with a successful registration process.”

Students should look for special Registration Station signs at the following locations across campus:

-- Dean B. Ellis Library:
    The Learning Commons
    Undergraduate Studies
    Student Support Services

-- Honors College office

-- Humanities and Social Studies Building:
    Main computer lab, first floor
    Room 2013

-- Reng Student Union:
    Registrar’s Office
    Disability Services

-- Other buildings include:
    Wilson Advising Center
    Nursing and Health Professions computer lab
    SMART Center, Laboratory Science Center, West Wing, Room 530

Each station will operate on its own hours. Staff and faculty volunteers will be available at the Registration Stations to assist with basic questions.

Students who drop in to complete registration will earn the opportunity to go into daily drawings for registration rewards, like Starbucks cards.

The registration team will hold mini-registration celebrations on the opening day of registration for each classification, starting with seniors on Monday, April 2, followed by juniors on Wednesday, April 4, sophomores on Friday, April 6, and freshmen on Monday, April 9.  The celebration events will be in the main computer lab at Ellis Library.

The Registration Stations initiative is a project of the Chancellor’s Completion Commission, chaired by Dr. Jill Simons, associate vice chancellor for retention and completion.

“Early registration is the first step to ensure the timely graduation of our students. Early registration allows students ample time to develop an appropriate course schedule which will reduce the need to drop and add courses during the weeks leading to the next semester," Simons added.

For more information, contact Nesbitt in the Undergraduate Studies Office at Ellis Library, Room 143, by phone at (870) 972-3574 or undergraduatestudies@AState.edu.
