The program begins next August. ASU already offers out-of-state tuition waivers to children of ASU graduates, regardless of where they live. ASU also offers waivers to residents of out-of-state counties contiguous to Arkansas. For details, contact ASU Admissions at ext. 3024 or admissions@astate.edu.
