Athens State College is a public institution, operating under state control, located in Limestone County.

Athletic scholarships are given in basketball and various sports. Student housing is available.

Athens State University is both the oldest and youngest institution of higher education in Alabama's state educational system. The Institution was founded in 1822 by local citizens who purchased five acres of land, erected a building, and began Athens Female Academy. Ownership of the school was transferred in 1842 to the Tennessee Conference of the Methodist Church. With the birth of the North Alabama Conference of the Methodist Church in 1870, the Institution came under the jurisdiction of that body.

Students have selected Athens State because of the neighborly environment where 33 different degrees are taught by an understanding and quality faculty. They offer a course schedule to meet your needs whether it be day, night or weekend courses.
