Encourage graduates to join Alumni Association
Graduating students (both undergraduate and graduate level) receive a free annual membership in the ASU Alumni Association as a graduation gift. Graduates have to sign up by contacting the Alumni Association personally or they can do it when they go to the ASU Bookstore for their cap and gown fitting. Recent graduates can join for half price for $18 until five years after they have graduated. Encourage students you know to participate and help them stay connected with ASU.

Payroll update regarding IRS letter to employees
Employees who worked at ASU during the calendar year 2002 should be receiving a letter from the Internal Revenue Service regarding "unreported" wages for that year. When employees receive this letter, they should contact Payroll Services. Payroll Services will then provide a packet of information for each employee to provide to the IRS. Each packet will be tailored for each employee based on wages for 2002. Payroll Services is working diligently to assist ASU employees to make this process as smooth as possible.

Board of Trustees meeting update
The ASU Board of Trustees met yesterday via conference call and approved two action items on the agenda. They approved offering an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing at Mid-South Community College in West Memphis and a Master of Business Administration at Arkansas Tech University in Russellville. Both proposals will be submitted to the Arkansas Department of Higher Education for approval at the October  meeting of the Coordinating Board. If approved, the programs will become effective in January 2005 as program extensions of ASU-Jonesboro.
