The Advising Center at ASU-Newport is dedicated to providing students with services that will enhance their overall college experience. 


ASU-Newport academic advising is a shared responsibility between advisors and students to exchange information which promotes excellence and inspires lifelong learning!


Academic advising at Arkansas State University Newport seeks to build relationships that support and empower students to reach their academic and professional goals.

At Arkansas State University-Newport, academic advising refers to a shared responsibility between advisors and students to exchange information to help students reach their educational and career goals. Through conversation, advisors can help students design a plan for success based on an assessment of the student’s abilities, interests, and values.

Academic advisors will assist students with:

  • enrolling at ASUN;
  • choosing a degree pathway;
  • registering for classes;
  • finding campus resources;
  • utilizing ASUN’s online resources;
  • answering questions about admissions, financial aid, degree options, or college life in general;
  • preparing for graduation;
  • transferring to a four-year college or university;
  • finding a career upon degree completion.

To help facilitate this learning process, ASU-Newport will have academic advisors available to meet with new students during new student orientation. Returning students are encouraged to schedule an advising session with their assigned faculty advisor.
