University College


University College is the academic unit for freshman students entering Alabama State University. This academic unit provides a firm foundation for life-long learning during students’ earliest time at the university. Currently, this is achieved through course offerings and through the Department of Advancement Studies’ student support courses and the Orientation Program. Resources and services also include the University College Tutorial Support Learning Centers and the Supplemental Instruction Program. Other exemplary student programs include the W.E.B. Dubois Honors Program and TRIO Programs. Additionally, University College is an academic unit which partners with campus academic and student support units to help students have an excellent start.


Student Success Programs

At ASU, we want every student to succeed. That’s why we offer programs and services aimed at helping all students enter college, get the degree of their choice and graduate to a successful future. Our student success programs include our Honor’s Program, Academic Support Centers, Living and Learning Community, University College High Achievers and TRIO Programs.


Advancement Studies

If your entrance exam scores aren’t high enough, ASU offers developmental courses in math, reading and English to bring your skills up to college level. We also offer a Freshmen Experience Orientation Program that prepares all students for college success with tips on time and money management, goal setting and study and test taking skills.


W.E.B DuBois Honors Program

The W.E. B. DuBois Honors Program is designed to challenge talented, academically strong students through providing opportunities for outstanding and independent academic achievement and educational experiences beyond the standard curriculum. It also encourages accelerated students to develop and reach their maximum potential and engage in a lifelong commitment to service.


Trio Programs

Trio Program at Alabama State University consists of Upward Bound, Educational Talent Search (Pre-college programs) and Student Support Services (Collegiate). The Trio’s {re-College programs are responsible for recruiting approximately 796 participant collectively each year. This program provides academic counseling, tutorial services, and college preparatory courses and information dissemination. Many of the students recruited through these programs often enrolled at ASU as a result of the early contact or influence of the University’s staff and resources. Those who enroll at ASU are referred to student Support Services to provide a continuum of the academic support services with a focus on those students entering graduate programs and beyond. Therefore, it is believed or evident that TRIO programs have a great impact on the recruitment and retention at the university. Most of the programs in TRIO have a bridge program component to University College.
