    Alcorn State is a NA school. That means that the administration is affiliated with the NA faith. Classes may be designed with religious principles in mind, or some schools may even incorporate prayer into their schedule.

It's a good idea to ask an admissions officer or current student what role faith has at Alcorn State to help you make an educated decision.
