Two Alabama HBCUs Team Up to Provide Greater Educational Opportunities for Black Students

Historically Black Tuskegee University has formed a partnership with Trenholm State Community College in Montgomery, Alabama, that will provide a seamless transfer process for Trenholm State students to complete their bachelor’s degrees.

Trenholm State College is a historically Black educational institution that enrolls just under 2,000 students. African Americans make up 73 percent of the student body.

Under the agreement, graduates of Trenholm State Community College will be able to transfer their credits and complete a four-year bachelor’s degree from Tuskegee University. As part of the agreement, Tuskegee will award three transfer students scholarships every fall. Students who are transferring will be allowed to participate in Tuskegee events the semester before they transfer – allowing them to enjoy athletic events; the Learning Resource Center; and Career Services resources.

Charlotte P. Morris, president of Tuskegee University, stated that “we have been working together, collaborating for many years, we have just not made it official. Tuskegee University is proud to solidify this partnership, allowing even more students to enjoy the Tuskegee Experience. This collaboration allows Trenholm students to continue their education at Tuskegee and more comfortably advance their academic aspirations.”
