Students at ASU Mid-South can select from several certificate and degree options. The Associate of Arts (transfer) degree allows students to complete the first two years of college in a smaller, more student-centered environment than most four-year institutions provide. AA recipients can use those courses to enroll in a four-year program through the college’s University Center, or they can transfer them to another location where they can work toward a bachelor’s degree. Students interested in four-year degrees in business and hospitality management can work toward Associate of Science degrees in those areas. Associate of Applied Science programs are designed for students who plan to enter the workforce immediately after earning their degree. In addition, the college offers technical and proficiency certificates that help students develop work-force and industry-relevant skills in a shorter time frame. ASU Mid-South also provides training designed to lead to professional licensures and/or certifications. The cost of attending college does not have to break the bank. ASU Mid-South’s tuition for Crittenden County residents is only $90 a credit hour, one of the lowest rates in the tri-state area. The out-of-county cost is just $110 per hour and applies to all other Arkansas counties as well as DeSoto County, Miss.; Fayette County, Tenn.; Marshall County, Miss.; Shelby County, Tenn., Tate County, Miss., Tipton County, Tenn., and Tunica County, Miss. ASU Mid-South offers financial assistance and scholarships to qualified students, and it’s not too late to apply.
