Awards and Accolades


It’s rare to find a scholastic environment that can offer superior instruction and excellent class offerings, yet also provide a truly personal college experience. But that’s exactly what we strive for at TROY. And it shows.


Service to students is our top priority – whether they are studying with us in-class or online, are traditional students or adult learners, are at one of our four Alabama campuses or halfway around the world. And, the proof that we excel at that? More than 140,000 graduates worldwide—and recognition from some of the most respected names out there.
