Why Allen

Joining the Allen University Family

Begin the next chapter of your life by becoming a Yellow Jacket. Once you join the Allen University family, you find yourself surrounded by other outstanding students, a caring and active alumni network, and an educated and dedicated faculty. We love our students and we care about their education and success.


Educated and Dedicated Faculty

We have over 40 full-time faculty and 60% of those have achieved the highest degree in their respective fields. Our faculty have been educated at institutions such as Howard University, Purdue University, University of Massachusetts, Clemson University, University of South Carolina, and more. Students at Allen benefit from educated faculty who care about them as individuals.

All Inclusive Tuition

There are no hidden fees in our tuition costs. The one bundled price includes room and board, tuition, and the student athletic fee. That means it’s easier for you to understand the full cost of attending college. In addition, 95% of our students receive financial aid. We work diligently with each student to help find the finances required to realize the dream of earning a bachelor’s degree. Money should not be a barrier to education.

Tight-Knit Learning Community

Allen University’s low 13:1 student to faculty ratio encourages meaningful interaction between students and faculty. You are not a number here, you are part of our family and a caring academic environment. We walk step by step with our students to help each one realize his or her potential.
