Why Louisburg

main building

Top 5 reasons why Louisburg College is the right fit or you!

1) Louisburg College has been helping students transfer to selective and highly selective 4-year colleges and universities for over 225 years.

2) We are the only two-year residential private college in North Carolina. You get to stay on campus, so your living experience in one of our 7 recently renovated residence halls is the same here as it would be at a 4-year institution.

3) We invest in you! We award over $3.5 million in LC grants and scholarships. We are one of the least expensive private schools in North Carolina. We offer levelized tuition and free books.

4) You get to lead, belong, and participate from day one on our campus because freshman and sophomores lead 100% of our clubs/organizations and are starters on our athletic teams.

5) We have extensive educational support services (Academic Support Center, Peer Tutoring, Learning Partners, Great Futures Coach, etc.) to help you achieve your best while you are here.


Building a Strong Foundation for Great Futures

According to our students and their parents, an education from Louisburg College is of great value. Students come to Louisburg for a variety of reasons, but most are attracted to the small class size. You are more than just a number here! You will get individualized attention from a professor that not only knows your name, but also knows who you are.
