Alcorn State University

The Admissions Process

Applications for admission are accepted from first time freshmen any time during the calendar year. There are four criteria to gain admission to Alcorn State University. Students who do not meet one of the criteria will be required to participate in a Summer Developmental Program.

About Student Affairs

Ask ASU students what makes this place special and you’ll hear about the Alcorn Pride– all the traditions that come to life the moment you step on campus. It’s about bonding with a new roommate, connecting with a campus organization or club, being celebrated for individuality and finding safe and fun ways to unwind after class.
The Division of Student Affairs makes sure that these traditions stay strong and that each student feels safe and supported in exploring new challenges. By promoting self-knowledge, leadership, responsibility and diversity, we are cultivating student excellence every single day.

We are the Division of Student Affairs, and we invite you to be a part of our heritage.
