Southern Union State Community College is an open admission, public two-year college and member of the Alabama Community College System. Southern Union was chartered as Bethlehem College in 1922. After a long tenure as a church-run college, in 1964, Southern Union was deeded to the state of Alabama and became part of the newly-created system of two-year colleges. In 1993 it merged with Opelika State Technical College, and now serves more than 5,000 students on three campuses in Wadley, Valley and Opelika.
Southern Union offers associate's degrees and certificates from their academic, technical, health sciences, and adult education divisions. The Associate of Science degree designed for transfer to a four-year institution can be earned entirely online.
