What began as a promise more than 115 years ago has become Franklin University’s single-minded mission: to make a college education possible for everyone. Today, we’re still giving hope to graduating high school seniors, working adults, military service members and international students from around the world.


In addition to the Main Campus in Columbus, Ohio, Franklin offers a number of programs, resources, and services at other regional locations. Community College students can also build on associate’s degree credits and complete a bachelor’s degree onsite, through our partnerships with area Community Colleges.


Franklin’s Center for Career Development offers a wide array of services to meet the diverse needs of our students and alumni in today’s changing workforce. Our goal is to help develop lifelong career management skills and integrate academic and career interests, as well as to connect students and alumni with employers and businesses interested in discovering great talent.
