Colleges and Higher Education
Arkansas State University (ASU) added a Mountain Home extension campus (ASUMH) to their system in 1995. Since then, enrollment has grown to approximately 1,500 students. As a public two-year institution, ASUMH offers associate degrees and certificates in occupational fields and transfer degrees for students planning to pursue a bachelor’s degree at another university. Low tuition, small classes, and a beautiful setting are just a few reasons students choose ASUMH. Students interested in junior, senior and graduate courses may take them through the ASU-Jonesboro programs also available on the ASUMH campus.
