Alcorn State University continues to earn national praise and recognition for being an exceptional educational institution.

Alcorn was the highest ranked Mississippi HBCU and fifth overall in the state on College Consensus’ Best Colleges in Mississippi 2017-2018 list.

“This has been another strong year for the university in terms of receiving outstanding accolades for excellence,” said Rankins. “Rankings are often used by prospective students and their parents to decide what college or university best fits their needs. We believe Alcorn is a good fit for those seeking a comprehensive land-grant and liberal arts educational foundation. Our future is bright.”

During the fall 2017 semester, Alcorn has received a number of notable recognitions and rankings from various publications and outlets including U.S. News and World Report and College Raptor.
