Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

Alabama A&M University is known for its strong academic programs in teacher education. It is a land-grant institution, giving special, individual attention to students, meeting each student's individual needs by special tutoring for those who may not have high ACT scores or who need help in individual classes, or by a honors program for those who fit that category. Undergraduate courses are offered through the Schools of Agricultural and Environmental Science; Arts and Sciences; Business; Education; and Technology. The school is an historically black university established in 1875. Its 2,001-acre campus is located in northern Alabama.
