Stillman College will open its doors to students and faculty affected by Birmingham-Southern College’s recent closure announcement. Administrators with the Tuscaloosa institution acknowledge the unfortunate predicament this announcement has caused students and faculty.

“Stillman College stands ready to assist Birmingham-Southern College faculty, staff, and students during this difficult transition, said Yolanda W. Page, president. “BSC will have our support as friends and colleagues.” Page said the institution will participate in the BSC Student Teach-Out and Transfer College Fair on Friday April 5 for BSC students where they can learn more about the campus’ programs.

Stillman has already begun accepting students who the announcement has impacted. In order to ease the burden, Stillman will:

  • waive all transfer application fees;
  • prioritize BSC student transfer applications for immediate placement in identified programs;
  • accept credits awarded by Birmingham-Southern College without any requirements for students to repeat credits;
  • provide designated transfer advisors who will assist students throughout the transfer process; and
  • provide financial support according to institutional policy and available funding without reference to residency status.

Eligible students must have a completed FAFSA to be eligible for institutional aid.

Additionally, Stillman College welcomes faculty applicants in Biology, Mathematics, English/Journalism, Business Administration (with various specific interests such as Data Analytics, Supply Chain Management, and Accounting), African American History, or Gender and Race Studies.

“We would welcome any applicants interested in continuing to teach and research in a small, private, liberal arts college with a mission focused on serving the underserved and marginalized, and those with disparate levels of preparation,” said C. Mark McCormick, provost and vice president for academic affairs.
