Alabama State University Establishes Partnership with Trenholm State Community College

Historically Black Alabama State University has partnered with Trenholm State Community College to provide Trenholm students with the opportunity to participate in concurrent enrollment, allowing students to take classes at Trenholm and Alabama State at the same time.

In addition to offering a pathway for community college students to transfer to a four-year degree program at Alabama State University, this partnership establishes a reverse transfer agreement which allows credits earned at ASU to be easily transferred back to Trenholm in order for students to finish their associate’s degrees.

“Our economic impact with both of these institutions, for this community, as well as this state and nation is overwhelming,” said Alabama State University President Quinton T. Ross Jr. “We have an obligation to our community to provide our students with an opportunity of a lifetime. That’s what this agreement and this partnership is all about.”

“This partnership with ASU greatly enhances the opportunities for our students to become academically successful and it significantly contributes to the national goal of having 60 percent of adults with a post-secondary degree,” said Trenholm State President Sam Munnerlyn. “This partnership means that our students will get opportunities and scholarships that are so important with the mounting cost of education across this county.”

Trenholm State Community College enrolls more than 1,800 students, according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 68 percent of the student body.
