Randolph College is a private, liberal arts college located in Lynchburg, Virginia. Founded in 1891 by William Waugh Smith, then president of Randolph-Macon College, it has, for over 118 years, existed as Randolph-Macon Woman’s College, one of the top institutions of higher learning for women in the South.
On July 1, 2007 the historic decision was finally made to turn the college into a coeducational school and admit male students – a painful decision that was nonetheless needed in order to insure the viability of the college and stem the steady decrease in enrollment. Thus, in 2007, the school officially became coeducational and was renamed Randolph College.
Today, the college offers both undergraduate as well as graduate degree programs. It has over 50 majors and several pre-professional programs. Students can also pursue graduate studies and opt for the Master of Arts in Teaching and the Master of Education degree programs. Dual degree programs are also available in nursing and engineering.
Students enrolled at Randolph College mostly come 36 states and 30 countries outside of the U.S. These students are guided in their studies by 80 fulltime faculty members, 90% of whom hold the highest possible degree in their chosen field. With the average class size no more than 12 and the student to faculty ratio at 8 to 1, students are assured of a focused, one-on-one interaction with their teachers.
Cost of attendance for academic year 2009-2010 is US$38,145 for fulltime students. This cost includes tuition of US$27,920; room and board at US$9,715; student government fee of US$210; and technology fee of US$300. Financial aid is extended by way of loans, grants and scholarships to help students pay for their cost of attendance.

Classes meet Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to around 4:30 p.m., and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 11:10 a.m. Holding classes on Saturdays is what allows us to complete the program in only four weeks. Summer school course hours meet or exceed Virginia’s state requirements.
During the evening hours, students enjoy the use of our 135-acre campus, playing football, soccer, basketball, swimming, or simply enjoying a leisurely walk to enjoy the beauty of the campus and our mountain views. Students also have the option at times to go into Front Royal for a movie night or game of bowling.
Summer school students may go home after classes end on Saturdays and return Sunday evening. Those remaining on campus are required to participate in the weekend activities. On Saturday afternoons, students participate in trips to major theme parks. Sunday activities include on-campus athletic activities and off-campus shopping. Day students are welcome and encouraged to participate in all activities.
All students are assigned a mentor who provides academic and social guidance and support throughout the summer school session. Each mentor meets regularly with a group of no more than ten students to encourage one-on-one rapport and group connectivity. The mentor’s mission is to help make every student’s summer experience positive and productive.
