Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Arkansas State University Online is working to bring you a quality education and academic experience in a way that allows you to fulfill any job or family obligations at the same time.

A-State Online is the online campus of Arkansas State University.  And Arkansas State University is a nationally recognized institution with a vast alumni network.

Academically Rigorous, Accredited Programs

The courses offered online are the same as the courses we offer on campus.  That means completing an online degree earns you the same diploma as the one given to students who completed their degree on campus.  It won’t even say that you completed the degree online.

 A-State is accredited by the regional institutional accreditor, the Higher Learning Commission North Central Association.  Additionally, our individual programs are all accredited.  You can see the list of accreditations here. (Insert link: http://www.astate.edu/info/about-asu/accreditations/)
