Alabama State University Enters Into a Partnership With Miami Dade College

Historically Black Alabama State University in Alabama has entered into a partnership agreement with Miami-Dade College in Florida. Under the agreement, students who graduate with an associate’s degree from Miami-Dade will be able to continue their studies in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree at Alabama State.

Miami -Dade College enrolls nearly 55,000 students according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 14 percent of the student body and Hispanic students are 70 percent of all enrollments.

The agreement allows any Miami Dade College student who receives an associate’s degree in majors that align with Alabama State’s curriculum to be accepted into the university’s degree programs. Additionally, the university will accept credit hours of appropriate coursework of Miami Dade students to count toward a bachelor’s degree at Alabama State.

Quinton T. Ross Jr., president of Alabama State University, said that “at ASU, we believe opportunity changes everything, and providing Miami-Dade College students an opportunity to transition to ASU with a continuation of access to quality and affordable higher education is a top priority for us. It’s all about student success. This is a great partnership between our two schools, which we believe can be a successful example nationwide.”
