Small classes, individual attention and affordable tuition make Alabama Southern the best place to begin your college career.
College tuition has skyrocketed in recent years, leaving many college graduates burdened with heavy debts. Students across the country are taking a second look at community colleges and seeing the great opportunities offered. Alabama Southern has five convenient locations, so visit us today and see why we really are your best choice.
Alabama Southern offers everything that a big state school or a private college offers – except the high price tag. We bring leading edge technology into every classroom giving you hands-on experience with the same ground-breaking software and programs you'll find at your transfer university and on the job. We have more computers per student than any other college in Alabama, and we offer the best industrial technology labs in the state.
Our innovative approach to individualized learning helps our students succeed in the classroom – and in the workplace. We assess the individual learning style of all entering freshmen and create a learning portfolio for each student. The portfolio lets you know how you learn best and gives our faculty the tools to guide you to success.
Instructors at Alabama Southern enhance their outstanding academic qualifications with actual hands-on experience in their field of study. Courses are always taught by qualified instructors, not graduate students working their way through college. We maintain a small student-to-teacher ratio, so you will receive an education tailored to your needs instead of being lost in classes with 300 first-year students.
These days students may be tempted by online degree programs that don't even require class attendance. So, why choose Alabama Southern? College is more than sitting in front of a computer. We want your college experience to be fun and rewarding. College is a time for meeting new friends, learning leadership skills, or just spending a day at the river. Our sports programs are another winning way to get involved. In the classroom, in the stands or in the field, Alabama Southern has it all.
