Starting Classes

We understand that starting anything for the first time — or starting something over — can be intimidating, but taking our college classes doesn’t have to be.

In 2016, we had 1367 students; 587 of them were non-traditional and 653 of them were part-time.

Our student-to-instructor ratio was 15:1, and the average student age was 27 years old (ranging from 15 to 72!).

We had two students studying with us from foreign countries & 94 from out-of-state.

790 of our students were female.

85% of our students received financial aid or scholarships (of any source).

We awarded 135 technical certificates, 195 certificates of proficiency, and 241 associate degrees.

We have students from all walks of life. We have students from all over the world. And we have students of all ages. There is no set recipe for success in life, but with a certificate or degree, you’ll have a leg up on the competition. Don’t be intimidated or afraid to start classes; we got you.


Community Events

July 10 – July 14

Camp Invention


ASUMH is hosting an event this summer that you won’t want your kids to miss!

In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Arkansas State University-Mountain Home’s Community Education program is pleased to offer the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades 1 through 6. It’s an exciting, week-long summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children will work together to seek solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills while rotating through several fascinating modules. The week begins on July 10th with Amber Middlebrooks serving as Director of the Epic™ program!

During the program, children will transform the terrain and ecosystem of a distant exoplanet, take risks as future entrepreneurs, blast rockets and rubber chickens, and wire a circuit to create their own Spy Gadget Alarm Box! Check out this video to see highlights: https://youtu.be/9OiFeEzgJwA.

What is Camp Invention?
Camp Invention is one week in the summer where your child’s creativity, innovation, and problem-solving skills are challenged and developed in fun and exciting ways. Our top priority is to inspire future innovators and build their confidence in the natural ability to dream and create.

Who is Camp Invention for?
Any child entering kindergarten through 6th grade! The curriculum is designed with each child in mind, featuring fun, age-appropriate activities.

Why should I consider Camp Invention?
Camp Invention is the only nationally recognized, non-profit elementary enrichment program inspired by the brightest thinkers around, the National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees. We know how to tap into your child’s natural need to discover and we do it with certified local instructors.

For children entering grades K through 6
Cost: $225
