School Details

Spalding University, which was founded in 1814, is a private, not-for-profit, four-year, liberal arts institution of higher education located in the city of Louisville, Kentucky. First established by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth at a site near Bardstown, Kentucky, the Nazareth Academy was granted a charter to award degrees in 1829. Then, in 1920, the Nazareth College opened a campus in Louisville. The campus officially changed its name to Spalding University in 1984. Today, Spalding University continues to honor the Roman Catholic legacy of the Sisters of Charity and partners with an extensive network of organizations to provide students with volunteer, internship, mentoring, and leadership opportunities.

Spalding University supports over twenty-four degree programs, which include associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs. Online degree programs include associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs.
