Alert

Faculty will be delivering all of the coursework for the semester online beginning March 17th.  The Tech Center has a new, improved WiFi service in the parking lot, thanks to Yelcot Communications. Students are encouraged to use this lot instead of the main campus parking lots when completing assignments. 

ASUMH has closed all offices except emergency operations on the campus.  Emergency operations personnel will perform their necessary functions on-site, but all other personnel will work remotely.  

Additionally, public schools will not be in session before April 20th.  We will remain in online-only instruction until that date or until further notification.
