Athens State is an upper-division university, meaning we serve junior-level, senior-level, and graduate students in their pursuit of a degree. This makes us uniquely positioned to help students who want to finish or advance their degrees and ultimately maximize their earning potential. We have a long, rich history, but we are built for the un-traditional college student. We place a genuine emphasis on producing the graduates that employers desire. We’ve become a destination for transfer students and for students who have paused their education — students who often find themselves balancing education with demands of adult life, including work and children.
Not only is Athens State a friendly, personable place to go to college, but because we’re an upper-division university, many of our students are working adults who are in need of a flexible schedule. Course schedules at Athens State are built to accommodate you on your time, including nights and weekends, in-person, and online. The many flexible online and hybrid learning opportunities are appealing to many of our students and are the hallmark of a modern university.Learn More
