Albany State University has a new program for students and it doesn't involve them stepping in the classroom.

Albany State has launched a new app for iPhone and Android users to allow for them to access a variety of services from the palm of their hand.

Students can access emergency services, course registration, admissions, faculty contact information and campus news from the app.
