An Open House has been set for Tuesday, Sept. 2, 3-8 p.m. at Franklin Pierce University at Lebanon for students interested in meeting with University representatives to learn about their options. Franklin Pierce at Lebanon is located at 24 Airport Road, Suite 19, in West Lebanon.

Franklin Pierce University President James F. Birge recently met with Ron Biron, president of Lebanon College, to discuss ways that Franklin Pierce could best extend a welcome to Lebanon College students. A tuition discount and transfer of credit package has subsequently been set up by the University. “We are well known for being student-centered at Franklin Pierce,” said Chris Audino, Center Director of Franklin Pierce at Lebanon, “and it was only natural for us to reach out with this personalized program for displaced Lebanon College students.”

Franklin Pierce at Lebanon has online as well as hybrid undergraduate programs that can provide ready alternatives to students of the defunct two-year private institution. Displaced Lebanon College students can find out about tuition discount eligibility and transfer credit opportunities at the Open House, or by contacting Admissions at or 1 (800) 325-1090.
