About Louisburg

brownIt is a pleasure to welcome you to our website. Louisburg College has been serving students for over 232 years, and as the oldest two-year college in the nation we are excited to be serving a new generation of students.

Louisburg College is the only two-year residential college in North Carolina. At Louisburg, students are given an opportunity to excel in the classroom, and within the campus community. Our students are a part of a learning community where faculty and staff enthusiastically offer the support they need to discover their path in life and reach their full potential.
At Louisburg College, our philosophy is "students first." We believe strongly in the value of a two-year, supportive, opportunity-driven educational institution committed to nurturing young men and women both inside and outside the classroom.

As a college related by faith to the United Methodist Church, we also believe that higher education involves the growing of the mind and the heart.

Louisburg College is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, and ​has comprehensive transfer articulation agreements with many public and private colleges and universities, allowing ​Louisburg College​ graduates to make a seamless transition upon entering four-year schools as full-fledged juniors.

I hope you will visit our beautiful and historic campus in person and consider becoming a part of the Louisburg College learning community.
