Saint Andrews Presbyterian College is a private, four-year, liberal arts college located in Laurinburg, North Carolina. Founded in 1958, it traces its beginnings to a merger between two schools: the Flora Macdonald College established in 1896 and the Presbyterian Junior College founded in 1928. The resulting college was named St. Andrews Presbyterian College first to acknowledge its Scottish Presbyterian heritage and, second, to make it identify with the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. Although founded in 1958, the new college opened its doors to students in 1961. Acting ahead of its time, the college insured that its campus was barrier-free and accessible even to students with physical disabilities.
Today, St. Andrews Presbyterian College grants Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees as well as certificate courses in therapeutic horsemanship, organizational leadership, and equine business management. The college’s Center for Adult and Professional Studies allows working individuals whose schedules may not permit them to attend the tradition day classes to complete their courses either online or during weekend classes or a combination of both. This flexible scheduling of classes assures that anyone interested to pursue education in the college is able to do so.
Cost of attendance for academic year 2010-2011 for fulltime residential students includes full-year tuition of US$21,614 plus comprehensive fees of US$8,938. This includes room and board and other required fees but not the cost of books and supplies, transportation and miscellaneous/personal expenses. The student must set aside funds for these as well. Financial aid in the form of loans, grants and scholarships is extended to help students pay for their cost of attendance.
