Introductions


Student Responsibility

Each student should study this Undergraduate Bulletin and become completely familiar with the organization and the regulations of the university. Failure to do  this may result in serious mistakes for which the student shall be held fully responsible.

Policy Statement

Policies and procedures stated in this bulletin-from admission through graduation-require continuing evaluation, review, and approval by appropriate university officials. All statements reflect policies in existence at the time this bulletin went to press, and the university reserves the right to change policies at any time and without prior notice.

University officials determine whether students have satisfactorily met admission, retention, or graduation requirements. Arkansas State University reserves the right to require a student to withdraw from the university for cause at any time.

Title IX Non-Discrimination and Reporting Statement

Arkansas State University does not discriminate on the basis of sex in any education program or activity that it operates. Further, A-State is subject to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and is therefore required by Title IX and 34 C.F.R. Part 106 not to discriminate in such a manner. This requirement extends to admissions and employment with the university. Inquiries about the application of Title IX or 34 C.F.R. Part 106 to A-State may be referred to A-State’s Title IX Coordinator, to the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights for the U.S. Department of Education, or both. A-State’s Title IX Coordinator holds the title Director of Title IX and Institutional Equity and may be contacted as follows:

By email: title9@astate.edu
By phone: 870-972-2015
In Person: Administration Building, Suite 104
By mail: Office of Title IX and Institutional Equity, P.O. Box 1500, State University, AR 72467

Any person may report sex discrimination, including sexual harassment (whether or not the person reporting is the person alleged to be the victim of conduct that could constitute sex discrimination or sexual harassment), in person, by phone, or by email using the contact information provided above or by any other means that results in the Title IX Coordinator receiving the person’s verbal or written report. Such a report may be made at any time (including during non-business hours) by using the telephone number or email address, or by mail to the office address, provided above.

A-State’s Title IX (Sexual Harassment Discrimination) Grievance Procedure and its Other Sex-Based Discrimination Grievance Procedure can be found at the University’s Title IX webpage.

Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action

Arkansas State University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer with a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff. To that end, the university provides opportunities in employment practices, admission and treatment of students without regard to color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, age, national origin, religion, marital status, veteran status, genetic information or disability. Arkansas State University complies with all applicable federal and state legislation and does not discriminate on the basis of any unlawful criteria.

Questions regarding this policy should be addressed to the Affirmative Action Program Coordinator, P.O. Box 1500, State University, Arkansas 72467. Telephone (870) 972-2015.

Services for Individuals with Disabilities

Arkansas State University’s Coordinator of Services to students, faculty and staff with disabilities is also the university’s compliance coordinator for Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG). In this capacity, the coordinator arranges for academic adjustments and auxiliary aids to be provided to qualified students and coordinates workplace accommodations. The coordinator also is the individual to whom concerns about physical access to facilities, buildings and grounds should be addressed. The coordinator’s office is located on the second floor (Room 2181) of the Reng Student Services Center. The telephone number is (870) 972-3964. 

Arkansas State University will provide auxiliary aids, without cost, to those students with verified disabilities who require such services. If service providers are necessary, Arkansas State University will provide appropriately trained providers (other than paid tutors).
