About the University of Mount Olive: Leading Christian Liberal Arts University in North Carolina

At the University of Mount Olive, we believe in transformational education. Not only do we strive to cultivate a generation of intelligent, open-minded students with a strong liberal arts background — we recognize that it is just as important to teach our students values that will help them develop into positive, contributing members of society.

Transforming Education

When it comes to higher education, we know that one size does not fit all. In fact, the University of Mount Olive is currently home to approximately 3,800 adult students along with more than 900 traditional students. And with our diverse range of degree programs and campus locations, students are sure to find a major at a location that suits their academic goals and personal needs.

Offering small class sizes, personable faculty and staff, and affordable tuition, the University of Mount Olive is quickly becoming one of the leading private Christian universities in North Carolina.

Transforming Lives

Founded by the Convention of Free Will Baptists, the University of Mount Olive provides an educational experience shaped by strong Christian ideals. Developing positive values in our students is not just rhetoric — it’s a fundamental part of our University’s commitment to integrity and is therefore reflected in all that we do.
