About

History

Meredith has experienced plenty of change since the College began educating the South's brightest women more than 126 years ago. Our enduring commitment to innovation and fresh perspectives over the years has allowed us to confidently grow and adapt our programs - and keeps us going strong.

Education

Meredith College, grounded in the liberal arts and committed to professional preparation, educates and inspires students to live with integrity and provide leadership for the needs, opportunities and challenges of society.

Research

With a long history of educating strong women, Meredith is positioned to take on national prominence as a leading source of important research on selected women’s issues. Building on the momentum of The Status of Girls in North Carolina report, the College released The Status of Women in North Carolina Politics and launched The Meredith College Poll – both of which offer insight into how the state’s citizens perceive women as political leaders.

Student Reviews

Private All-Girls College
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I enjoy Meredith College a lot. There is a rich history, and the faculty and staff care about their students. It’s a smaller campus, and an all-girls school, but neither bothered me. It was nice to have my professors know who I am, and even what is going on in my life. The only downside of Meredith is that it has a heavy tuition, from $35,000 to $40,000.
