Tuition and Acceptance Rate
- Having evolved from three earlier institutions, Franklin Male Academy, Louisburg Female Academy, and Louisburg Female College, Louisburg College is the oldest chartered two-year, church-related, co-educational college in the nation. During the presidency of Arthur D. Mohn in the 1920s, Louisburg College experienced a period of building expansion. The West Wing of Main Building, the Pattie Julia Wright Dormitory, and the Franklin County Building were constructed. Unfortunately, a disastrous fire gutted Main Building and the new West Wing in 1928. Louisburg College has comprehensive transfer agreements with many public and private colleges and universities, including the 16 branches of the University of North Carolina system, that allow Louisburg College graduates to make a seamless transition upon entering four-year schools as full-fledged juniors. Our top five transfer schools are East Carolina University, North Carolina State University, UNC Chapel Hill, UNC Wilmington and Barton College. The faculty at Louisburg is dedicated to the success of every student. Teaching and advising - not research - are our professors primary responsibilities. Our dedicated faculty provide individual assistance, ensuring that each student is academically prepared to meet the requirements of major four-year colleges and universities. Louisburg College has a long tradition of excellence in athletic competition. Hurricane athletics play an integral part in college and campus life. Because Louisburg is a two-year college, our players have the added valuable opportunity to contribute and make a difference on their teams from the first pitch, dribble, or header.
