ASTATE 8-7-Zero Plan

Students who are residents of Arkansas who have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of zero on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, will have no upfront cost to attending Arkansas State University next academic year.

The Come to the 870 Plan invites students from families with modest means from across the state to attend A-State as an on-campus student. This plan packages together a combination of the new A-State Heritage Grant with federal aid, state scholarships, and work study opportunities. In addition to ZERO tuition and fee costs, students in their first year at A-State may use any excess funding to help zero out on-campus living expenses.

Families should begin filling out the FAFSA now at www.fafsa.org. Funds for the 8-7-Zero program are limited and applications should be submitted by A-State‚Äôs priority scholarship consideration date of December 1. In addition, students need to be fully admitted to the university by December 1. Students can submit their application at www.astate.edu/applynow.
