In a statement Monday, ASU President Gwendolyn Boyd said the school's recent credit downgrade by Moody's Investor's Service is the third in almost nine months and she considers it a "very serious issue."
Boyd says university officials are hopeful that fiscal austerity and the implementation of financial best practices will help restore the school's credit rating, which dropped Oct. 18, Jan. 21 and again on Thursday.

In this Dec. 20, 2013 photo, Dr. Gwendolyn Boyd is offered the presidency of Alabama State University by the Board of Trustees at the ASU campus in Montgomery, Ala. Boyd is one of several women who are shattering the glass ceiling in the Montgomery area.
It seems that the honeymoon of Alabama State University's newly elected President Gwendolyn Boyd and the school's board of trustees is over.
The board unanimously voted Dec. 20 to select Boyd, an ASU alum and a former Delta Sigma Theta national president, to be the next-and first female-president in the university's 146-year history.
However, a series of letters obtained and recently published by The Montgomery Advertiser show that the love between the new president and some trustees may have diminished.
The back-and-forth letters emerged after Boyd presented a new organizational chart at a trustee committee meeting on April 25-and then almost immediately released the information to the media.
Dean further said that Boyd seemed not to understand the role of the board and that it had the statutory authority to approve the final organizational structure.
In a response dated April 28, Boyd defended her actions.
"It is with shock and dismay that I read your stated correspondence, which does not reflect accurately the events which transpired or the cordial relationship that I thought I had with the members of the board of trustees," Boyd wrote. "In my opinion, your assessment of me is unfair and inaccurate."
Boyd said she has always been conscientious in responding to board members' visits, phone calls or texts. She also recounts an April 11 meeting with Dean during which he reviewed the draft of the organizational chart-an action Dean denies-and told her to "just give it" to other board members at an upcoming meeting.
Boyd also references an April 24 meeting in her office with Trustee Marvin Wiggins, ASU general counsel Kenny Thomas and attorney Donald Watkins.
The meeting, Boyd said, was held to discuss forming a relationship with the FBI, a follow-up to a previous meeting in which someone tried to convince Boyd to provide statements from the sister of former ASU employee Jacqueline Weatherly.
Boyd indicated that she chose not to speak with the FBI since the case had already been adjudicated and she felt it was not in the university's best interest to dredge up more "negative press.
"Yes, I did stand my ground with (Wiggins)," Boyd wrote.
According to the Advertiser, Dean recently said the issues between trustees and Boyd had been worked out in private.
A spokesman with Boyd's office told the AFRO that "rather than comment on the situation you reference, President Boyd is focusing on her role as the leader of our University and her desire to enhance the already good progress that we are making in the lives and education of our greatest asset, which is our students."
"She is also busy working on the proposed implementation of her campus-wide reorganization plan that comes up for discussion at a Board of Trustees meeting on May 23," he added.
