    I am looking at tuition for out-of-state because I am from Illinois and it is the best deal for a larger out-of-state school that I have ever seen. It is approximately $17,000/yr for in-state and $25,000/yr for out-of-state.

    Going to A-state was one of the best decisions I have ever made. For a reasonable tuition cost, you receive exceptional academic instruction, a close-knit friendly community, and a platform for your career that no other institution in Arkansas will be able to give you.

    Because this is a college town, Jonesboro provides an over abundance of affordable items. This is the cheapest University in Arkansas at the moment and for all that we get, I do not know why everyone doesn't go here! Almost everything held on campus is free to the student, and the meal plan provides an endless amount of food. Why not?
