One of the Nation’s Best Liberal Arts Colleges – Right Here in your Hometown!

Want to earn a college degree from a nationally recognized, liberal arts college, but don’t want to go far from home? Think you can’t afford a great college education?

Problem Solved.

Randolph College knows college is an investment. That’s why we created the Local Educational Access Program (LEAP).

This special program allows us to offer a special rate to students from Lynchburg City and the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, Campbell, and Nelson.

Randolph guarantees that qualified students in the Class of 2024 will PAY NO MORE THAN $12,000 THEIR FIRST YEAR IN TUITION—though many students pay far less than this after federal financial aid!

For 2019-20, the average amount due after federal financial aid for Randolph LEAP students living at home was just $3,784.*

Want to live on campus?

For 2020-21, incoming LEAP students will pay no more than $20,000 in tuition, room, and board.

This means you can take advantage of Randolph’s high caliber liberal arts education, caring faculty, close-knit community, excellent athletic programs, and numerous internship and other programs at a cost that is comparable to or less than the cost of tuition at state public institutions.
