Alabama State University is a comprehensive regional university that focuses on offering learning and practical experiences that are designed to develop students' intellectual abilities, as well as social, moral, cultural, and ethical values.

Accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools-as well as business, teaching, music, occupational therapy, health education, and social work accrediting organizations-the university is dedicated to continually improving and expanding.
