Alabama State University Creates Pipeline Program With Wallace State Community College

Historically Black Alabama State University in Montgomery has signed an agreement with Wallace State Community College in Selma to provide a pathway for qualified Wallace State students to enroll at Alabama State and earn a bachelor’s degree.

The Selma campus of Wallace State Community College enrolls just under 1,500 students, according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 73 percent of the student body. The college is named for former Alabama Governor George C. Wallace who vowed in his inaugural address in 1963 “Segregation now! Segregation tomorrow! Segregation forever!”

“This agreement formalizes a process that many of our Wallace State students believe in, which is getting their degree here in Selma and then obtaining their four-year degree from Alabama State University,” said WSCC President Dr. James Mitchell said.

“By signing this agreement, ASU and Wallace State are promoting and providing its students with a great opportunity to achieve far-reaching heights in their education and careers,” said Quinton T. Ross, president of Alabama State University. “After all, we are all about helping students.”
