Alabama State University Partners With Central Alabama Community College

Historically Black Alabama State University in Montgomery signed an agreement with Central Alabama Community College that will allow the institutions to work together to build a seamless pipeline for students attending the community college to have the opportunity for a direct pathway to study and obtain a degree at Alabama State.

Central Alabama Community College in Alexander City enrolls just under 1,600 students, according to the most recent data available from the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 16 percent of the student body.

Quinton T. Ross, Jr, president of Alabama State University, stated that “what we are doing by signing this agreement is important for Central Alabama’s students, the community, ASU, and for education. This is a match that lifts up Central Alabama’s students and allows ASU to continue to help enhance its educational and career opportunities by giving interested students at Central Alabama Community College an opportunity to study with us at ASU.”

“We are most grateful for the opportunity to be partners with Alabama State University and see our students enhance their education with additional classes, which will help their ability to obtain better employment opportunities upon graduation,” added Jennifer B. Steele, director of nursing at Central Alabama Community College.
