About the university

One of Georgia’s educational gems, Albany State University prepares students to be effective contributors to a globally diverse society, where knowledge and technology create opportunities for personal and professional success.

     Founded in 1903, Albany State University is a member institution of the University System of Georgia. Serving an increasingly diverse student body and community. ASU offers 30 baccalaureate, 12 graduate, and 14 associate degrees and 13 certificates across 60 programs at its main campus in Albany and at branch sites as well as online.

     Albany State University respects and builds on the historical roots of its institutional predecessors with its commitment to access and a strong liberal arts heritage that respects diversity in all its forms and gives students the foundation they need to succeed. ASU offers the Golden RAM Guarantee, which is the University’s promise to remain committed to ensuring academic excellence and student success.

     One of the nation’s top Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the University’s mission focuses on access, equality, and diversity, ensuring all students have an opportunity to pursue a degree.

     Home to 6,509 students (FTE 5,676), the ASU student body consists of both traditional and non-traditional students. More than 23% of students are first-generation college students (i.e., neither parent completed a four-year college or university degree), and more than 80% receive some form of financial aid with 55% receiving the Pell Grant.

     Approximately 28% of the student population reside on campus, and the remainder (72%) are commuters.

Undergraduate students account for 94% of the enrollment, and graduate students account for 6%.

     The University’s demographic make-up includes 72% female, 27% male, and 17% over 25 years of age. First-year students (i.e., those with 0-29 earned hours) account for 40% of the total enrollment, and sophomore students (i.e., those with 30-59 earned hours) account for 24% of the total enrollment.

About the College

The College of Business, Education, and Professional Studies (COBEPS) offers a cadre of programs designed to prepare students for their professional careers. Each major provides a rigorous, yet engaging set of courses, including a requirement for experiential learning.

     The University’s theme of “Excellence is the Standard” is fully embraced by the College’s administrators, staff, and faculty. This theme is reflected in the design of programs, the content of the courses, and how the content is delivered to students.

     Being student-focused allows the College to work closely with students and help them identify their goals and objectives (personal and career) and provide a course of study to develop the professional skills and knowledge needed to reach those goals and objectives. The College faculty engage with students both face-to-face in the classroom as well as virtually.

     In addition to the ASU’s accreditation by SACSCOC, most of the programs in the College are also accredited by program accrediting agencies. The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE), the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) and the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA) have individually accredited ASU programs. See the Search Profile for a complete listing of the undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Identifying sources and developing plans for securing external financial resources for the College’s scholarly and programmatic goals as well as articulating the College’s vision, qualities, and distinctiveness as its principal advocate and spokesperson within the University community and to national and international external constituencies are important responsibilities of this leader.
