JONESBORO – Arkansas State University’s Enrollment Management division will take the lead going forward on services to transfer students as well as management of the Registrar’s Office, Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management Dr. Bryan Terry announced this week.
“A-State has a strong commitment to working with students who want to transfer to our campus here in Jonesboro to complete their degree programs,” Terry said. “By consolidating areas that were in separate divisions we can give a new focus to supporting all our transfer students.”
Adrian Everett will be the director of transfer services within Enrollment Management. Everett had a similar role within Academic Affairs, where he was an associate director and the transfer student services coordinator.
The Registrar’s Office also transfers into Enrollment Management as a part of this reorganization.
“Our goal is to streamline the process of admission, from the moment we encourage a student to go to our ‘Apply Now’ link on our website or to choose A-State in the Common App, to when that student is admitted to when that future Red Wolf comes onto campus as a first-year student,” Terry said. “Bringing all the steps under one roof makes it easier for our prospective students, and is an important part of our holistic approach to admission.”
Everett, a native of McGehee, completed his bachelor’s at A-State in 2011 and his master’s in 2013. He was A-State Student Government Association president during his undergraduate years.
A-State’s current registrar, Tracy Finch, and her staff will now become members of the Enrollment Management area.
