- Alabama’s oldest, private, historically black, liberal arts college continues to offer a unique undergraduate educational experience. We are committed to maintaining a high standard of academic excellence evidenced through the success of our graduates.
- The history of Talladega College began on November 20, 1865, when two former slaves William Savery and Thomas Tarrant, both of Talladega, met in convention with a group of new freedmen in Mobile, Alabama. Savery and Tarrant, aided by General Wager Swayne of the Freedmen´s Bureau, began in earnest to provide a school for the children of former slaves of the community. The grateful parents renamed the building Swayne School and it opened in November of 1867 with about 140 pupils.
- In 1869, Swayne School was issued a charter as Talladega College by the Judge of Probate of Talladega County.
- Talladega College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award the Bachelor of Arts degree. The Social Work program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.The Teacher Education Program is accredited by the Alabama State Department of Education.
