Welcome to Arkansas State University!
+ Campus alert: A-State Closed Jan. 16

A-State Closed on Jan. 16 due to winter precipitation.

Arkansas State University is closed today, Tuesday, Jan. 16, due to winter precipitation. All winter response staff members are requested to report to their duty stations.

Overnight, snow fall made conditions for students, faculty and staff hazardous.

"Our administrative team determined the snowfall was going to be heavier than forecast and while today was scheduled to be the first day of class for the spring 2018 semester, I've decided it is best that we cancel classes for today," Chancellor Kelly Damphousse said.

All classes at the Jonesboro and Paragould locations are cancelled. Online classes continue.

While offices and classes are closed, university residential life areas continue to operate to support the on-campus student population.

Ucard Instructions Sample

Dear Student,

I will utilize ProctorU Ucard identification for this course.  You will need to create a ProctorU account by clicking the ProctorU link in the course or by clicking the following link: 


You will need to schedule a time to create your Ucard by selecting ‘Create Ucard’ on your account page. Once you have scheduled a time to create your Ucard, you will connect to a live proctor and the proctor will walk you through the set up. You will only have to create the Ucard once.

I will have Ucard Challenge assignments randomly throughout the course.  All Ucard challenges will be given in Blackboard.  Click the link, complete the challenge, then return to Blackboard.  After completing the challenge, click “Mark Reviewed” and your assignment will appear.

Failure to complete the Ucard Challenge will result in a deduction of your grade.
