First Year Parent Association

Parents/guardians have the opportunity to sign up for the First-Year Parent Association. Membership in the association includes access to the weekly electronic communications and monthly newsletters featuring timely articles, important dates, photo gallery of first year students and other information relevant to the parents of first-year A-State students. This is a great opportunity for you to stay involved, and at the same time, let your son or daughter have the opportunity to take charge of his or her education. 

If you have any questions about the First Year Parent Association, contact Kelli Listenbee at klee@AState.edu.
