Compare This School What's my Chance of Admission?


Louisburg College is a two-year college located in the North Carolina community of the same name. The school has an official Methodist affiliation which is reflected in certain aspects of study curriculum, though the school does not turn down applicants due to differences in religious belief.

Louisburg College is one of the oldest and most historic colleges in the region, and dates back (through one of its two predecessor institutions) all the way to 1787, which is considered the official date of establishment. One of the school’s most prized assets, its large, 75-acre historic campus, looks more like the sort of thing students and visitors would find on a four-year, senior college and is in large part responsible for the outstanding reputation that Louisburg College has.


Louisburg College implements an open admissions policy in considering new student applications, so effectively any person with minimal qualifications and that shows the ability to be benefited through studies at the school will be accepted. Standard admissions requirements apply, such as provision of proof of a high school diploma or GED and official results of SAT or ACT exams.

There is the possibility for students who don’t meet Louisburg College’s basic requirements for admission to be granted conditional admission if there is sufficient reason to think the student and institution will both be benefited as a result. Furthermore, there is the possibility for high school juniors and seniors to be admitted (under determined circumstances, such as with a teacher’s/principal’s recommendation) for dual enrollment at Louisburg College, giving them the chance to gain college credit while still in high school.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis at Louisburg College, so applicants will be attended promptly no matter when they should choose to contact the school for admissions.
