LYNCHBURG–Randolph College has announced a new program aimed at making a high quality education more accessible to local students.

The Local Educational Access Program (LEAP) is available to qualified students from Lynchburg, Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, Campbell, and Nelson counties and offers both a residential and day student option.

"In today’s economy, we understand that many families are finding it harder to afford the cost of college," said Bradley W. Bateman, president of Randolph College. "Fortunately, students do not have to look very far to find high quality institutions close to home. Randolph recognizes the many talented students in our region’s high schools and wants to make it possible for these young women and men to attend a nationally recognized college where they will receive an excellent liberal arts foundation, individual attention from professors, and the opportunity to be a part of an engaged, student-centered community —all right in their backyard."

Under the program, students who choose to live at home will pay tuition of no more than $12,600 (after scholarships and grants). Tuition for students who live on campus will be no more than $10,000 (after scholarships and grants.) Students may also be eligible for additional federal aid.

Randolph’s tuition for 2013-14 is $32,240.

Students must qualify for admission, completing an application, essay and interview, and have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and a minimum SAT of 1050 (verbal and math).
