A Message from Dr. Christopher Giroir
Thank you for expressing an interest in our College Student Personnel (CSP) Master
of Science Program at Arkansas Tech University. Our 36-hour program is designed to
prepare an individual for a career working as a generalist in the higher education
setting. The program is grounded in student development theory and makes use of the
CAS Standards for Student Affairs Professional Preparation programs in the organization of our
curriculum. Our program is flexible for both the full-time or part-time student and
students can choose to take courses in the classroom, *online (approximately 51% of our students are pursuing this option), or a combination
In addition, graduate students who live in Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, Mississippi,
Tennessee, or Texas are considered "in-state" students for tuition purposes. For those not living in our surrounding states, you will find our out-of-state tuition
rates to be very affordable. We admit new students to our program every semester
and encourage those interested in learning more about the program to explore the links
on the website.
Should you have any questions or would like further information, please do not hesitate
to contact our CSP main office at 479-964-3251 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
