The University of Louisville became a public state university in 1970 but its origins can be traced back to the Jefferson Seminary, an institution of higher education that was founded in 1798. The Jefferson Seminary, however, suffered financial difficulties and was able to open only in 1813. It did not last long, closing in 1829. In 1833, two schools, the Louisville Collegiate Institute (LCI) and the Louisville Medical Institute (LMI), were chartered by the City Council. The former was renamed Louisville College in 1840 and was given Jefferson Seminary’s estate in 1844.

In 1846, the College, LMI and a newly-opened law school were combined by the State Legislature to form the University of Louisville. Several expansions during the early 1900s added new programs and new colleges. Since the university has become quite large, a call to make it a public university, meaning funded by the State, started during the 1960s. University of Louisville finally became a state-supported university in 1970.

At present, the University of Louisville offers over 4000 degrees given out by its colleges and schools: College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business, College of Education and Human Development, Graduate School, J.
