Selma University President Dr. Stanford Angion addressed the Selma Rotary Club as guest speaker on Monday.

Angion gave an update on the University’s current status and his viewpoint of the financial aid situation.

“We are working to restore participation in the Federal Financial Aid Program,” Angion said. “We lost participation in 2019. We are working to clear two audits for 2018 and 2019. It’s a slow process. It’s going well, but audits are expensive.”

Angion said the University was fined $1 million but has paid half of that amount.  He expects full federal financial aid to eventually get restored.

A member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Angion thanked the church group and the Selma community for supporting the university.

“There are people who want and need Selma University,” Angion said. “We have good support from churches. God continues to bless us, and he always finds a way.”

Angion said tuition at Selma University is $2,400 a semester. To stay on campus, the cost is $6,000 a semester.

Selma University currently has 75 students enrolled, with eight living in dormitories. Angion’s vision is to eventually have between 350 and 400 students on campus by 2031.
