About Tougaloo College

Established in 1869, Tougaloo is an HBCU with a rich history. Originally a seminary, Tougaloo College is affiliated with the United Church of Christ and is committed to providing equal educational opportunities to all people, regardless of ethnicity, creed or financial or social background.

Tougaloo administers its academics through five divisions:

*Education, Supervision and Instruction
*Humanities
*Natural Science
*Social Science
*Continuing Education and Professional Studies

The college offers about 30 majors, some of which have the option of a special emphasis. For example, if he or she chooses, an Economics major can add an emphasis in Accounting or Business Administration. There are also some dual-degree programs available through the Division of Natural Science. These include Engineering, Pre-Nursing and Dentistry.

Tougaloo College attempts to remove its students’ financial obstacles, offering several kinds of financial aid. Among these are the school’s many institutional scholarships, which are awarded based on academic achievement, athletics and need to eligible students. Tougaloo’s music department also offers scholarships to exceptional students.

Admissions at Tougaloo are somewhat flexible. Students who don’t meet the school’s requirements can make an appeal for conditional admission, and Tougaloo has transfer agreements with several local community colleges.

Overall Rating

Tougaloo College is a very heart-felt school. I feel as if I am home there. Everyone is friendly and you can always expect a cheerful greeting whenever you come across others while on campus! The campus site is historical and very beautiful. It is very relaxing to go outside and study in its peaceful setting. My advice to any incoming students would be to be open-minded and open-hearted. Socialize while you're here! It would be very hard not to anyway! Everyone is too nice and friendly!
