Vice Chancellor's Welcome

“Educate the mind to think, the heart to feel and the body to act,” these words represent not only TROY University’s motto, but also our mission. Founded in 1887, TROY University is a diverse, public university whose goal is to allow every TROY graduate to enter the world with the education they need to succeed, and the passion to make a difference in their community. We are committed to the highest standards of academic excellence, with faculty drawn from among the best in their industry. For the past 50 years TROY University has built its service to the non-traditional student on convenience and affordability. We don’t insist on a one-size fits all model. Students have the choice to customize their education to suit their career objectives, with flexible delivery platforms that fit a busy life and schedule.

Troy University’s Montgomery Campus is located in the historic heart of downtown and serves as one of the anchors of the downtown business community. Built around the student’s educational needs, the University serves students from throughout the River Region in face-to-face, blended and online delivery platforms. Whether you choose to take a course on the Montgomery Campus, online or at one of our other Alabama campuses; the quality of your degree program is the same.

Troy University Montgomery understands the demands of balancing life with the goal of obtaining your degree, and provides students with services through our Student Development Center, located in Whitley Hall. Students have access to tutoring, testing and proctoring, disability services for those who need additional learning support, as well as a TROY for Troops resource center. For students who are undecided about their degree path, the Student Development Center provides advisers who are skilled in listening and career planning. Most importantly, Troy University Montgomery Campus students have highly qualified faculty and staff members who are dedicated to teaching and lifelong learning.

Please consider this a personal invitation to visit Troy University’s Montgomery Campus and speak with one of our enrollment advisers about your educational goals. To schedule a visit, or merely to speak to an admissions specialist, you may call 1-800-355-8786 or (334) 241-9506.
