Randolph-Macon is an undergraduate, coeducational college of the liberal arts. The purpose of a Randolph-Macon education is to develop the mind and the character of its students. They are challenged to communicate effectively, to think analytically and critically, to experience and appreciate the creative process, to develop qualities of leadership, and to synthesize what they know with who they are.
At Randolph-Macon College the liberal arts constitute a comprehensive educational opportunity. The curriculum includes exposure both to broad perspectives and specific concepts. Students explore the natural and social sciences, the arts, and the humanities, while they also achieve a deeper understanding of the single discipline in which they major. They are guided in this endeavor by a faculty of teacher-scholars who are dedicated to the liberal arts and active in their professional disciplines and in the extra-curricular life of the campus.
Randolph-Macon's signature academic scholarship program for new students is the Presidential Scholars Program. The program recognizes students who have demonstrated the highest levels of academic achievement and leadership. Most awards range from $13,000 to $20,000 per year ($52,000 to $80,000 over four years). Awards are renewable for up to a maximum of four years, provided the recipients maintain the required grade point average. Select, exceptionally strong candidates may be invited to compete for full-tuition awards. The primary criterion for selection as a Presidential Scholar is academic achievement. We also consider leadership in school and the community, personal accomplishments or talents, and the personal interview with a member of the Randolph-Macon faculty. Most scholarship recipients will have a high school grade average of a A-/B+ (roughly 3.5) or above, competitive test scores (SAT above 1150 on critical reading and math sections; ACT above 25), and be in the top 25% of their high school classes. However, all students are evaluated individually during the admission process for scholarship eligibility. Students with solid academic performance in high school or college (but who do not qualify for our Presidential Scholars Program) and students who have demonstrated strong leadership while maintaining academic success may receive a Dean's Award. The Dean's Award is $13,000 annually ($52,000 over four years), and is renewable each year (for a maximum of four years) if the student maintains satisfactory academic progress. All applicants to Randolph-Macon College are automatically considered for a Presidential Scholarship or Dean's Award, but you should apply to the college no later than February 1. Eligible candidates will be invited to campus for an interview during one of our scholarship days in the spring semester. Award recipients may also qualify for other types of aid based on demonstrated need.
