Newberry College

Newberry College challenges and nurtures students for lifetimes of service and leadership through intellectual transformation, social development, a culture of physical well-being, and spiritual growth by providing a Christian education in the Lutheran tradition. Students from all faiths, ethnic backgrounds and nationalities are welcomed and embraced. A small, private, residential, co-educational college with a diverse student population, Newberry College offers baccalaureate degrees in 30 majors, 35 minors, and 29 areas of concentration. Founded in 1856, the College is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America and accredited by The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools: Commission on Colleges, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, the National Association of Schools of Music and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. Core courses emphasize liberal arts, sciences, and technology. Among the most popular degrees are business administration, teacher education, biology, health professions, science, psychology, communications, and English. Unique degree offerings include social media. The College has a radio and television station, and offers 17 NCAA Division II sports, plus womens field hockey, competitive cheerleading, a dance team and a marching band.At Newberry College, we understand that student loan debt is a big concern. A great liberal arts education is one of the smartest investments you'll ever make in yourself, but we understand it's a big decision for an uncertain return. We're the first in South Carolina to offer a innovative new loan repayment program called LRAP(Loan Repayment Assistance Program). It's open to all incoming freshmen and transfer students enrolled for Fall semester 2016 and beyond. The Newberry College Loan Repayment Promise gives you the freedom to pursue your academic and vocational goals without the burden of excessive student loan debt.
