Description

Miles College in Fairfield, Alabama, is a historically African-American, Christian liberal arts college that offers a holistic approach to learning in an intimate setting.

Miles College awards degrees through more than five academic divisions. These divisions include:

  • Business
  • Education
  • Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Social and Behavioral Sciences

Miles College generally keeps its student population well below 3,000 students. Consequently, students get substantial one-on-one attention in small classes.

Miles College also offers a holistic approach to education. That is, they believe in nurturing the student intellectually, physically, spiritually and socially. Miles reflects this mission in its academic programs, and in its student services, which offer health, mental health, academic and spiritual support.

Applicants may obtain admissions applications by contacting a Miles College admissions representative. Applicants should have completed a college-preparatory curriculum that includes courses in English, the sciences, math and history. Those who wish to apply for academic scholarships will also need to submit ACT or SAT scores.

In addition to scholarships, Miles College awards need-based federal aid like grants, loans, and work-study. To apply for federal aid, applicants must complete a FAFSA.

I personally think Miles College is an awesome college to attend. Their academic programs are the best, they actually give you a challenge and I love a challenge. The schools campus isn't big only because we're not a University. I still feel comfortable and have grown to love being on this campus and meeting my peers and instructors as well. There Greek life is the best of the best, I'm considering joining a sorority at Miles College. I would most definitely say I wish we had more campus activities go on, but college is what you make it. My experience at Miles College has been a good one and i'll recommend anyone to come and experience it.
