We are confident you will excel at LR and benefit from the high-quality academic programs, experiential and service learning opportunities, as well as the numerous student life activities and organizations. To ensure you begin your journey fully prepared, we invite all students that plan on enrolling at Lenoir-Rhyne to attend one of our Red & Black Days.

At Red & Black Days, students will have the opportunity to:
  • Learn about LR’s curriculum and meet with an advisor
  • Register for your first semester classes
  • Hear from residence life and submit your housing preference
  • Learn how to get connected to our campus community

Students must submit their enrollment deposit before attending Red & Black Day.


Red & Black Day Documents

Student Disclosure Form (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law which helps protect the privacy of student education records. The act provides eligible students the right to inspect and review their education records. An “eligible student” under FERPA is a student who is 18 years of age or older or one who attends a postsecondary institution. The intent of the legislation is to protect the rights of students and to ensure the privacy and accuracy of education records.

All LR students must have a student disclosure (FERPA) on file. You may complete a new FERPA at any point in time. Please print the FERPA, complete, and bring the disclosure to Red and Black Day.
