Luther Rice University, founded in 1962 and located in Lithonia, Georgia, is a private, Christian college situated about 20 miles east of downtown Atlanta. The institution offers undergraduate and graduate programs with a focus on theological education and Christian ministry. Luther Rice stands out for its online degree programs, designed to offer flexibility to non-traditional and working students. While the university has a relatively open admissions policy, it maintains a commitment to academic rigor within its distinctively religious curriculum. The campus exudes a serene, suburban atmosphere, with facilities geared towards adult learners and commuter students rather than traditional campus living amenities, as it doesn't provide on-campus housing. Popular majors at Luther Rice include Biblical Studies, Ministry, and Theology. Luther Rice University is not specifically renowned for its athletic programs; thus, sports and team names are not a prominent feature of student life.

Luther Rice University has an open admission policy which permits enrollment by any high school graduate or GED holding student.  107 students are enrolled on a full time basis, and 474 attend part time. In-state tuition for 2022/2023, excluding room and board, is $8,448 plus fees of $1,360.
