The Associated Colleges of the South
Incorporated in August of 1991, The Associated Colleges of the South is a consortium through which our member colleges and universities can create and build programs not possible on an individual basis. By sharing resources, our members can increase the efficiency of their own operations. Our hope is that the ultimate beneficiary is the student.
