Spencerian College was an allied health-based career college in Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky. It was founded in 1892 as the Spencerian Commercial School, a private for-profit business school, by Enos Spencer.[1]

In June, 2018, Spencerian College and Sullivan College of Technology and Design (formerly Louisville Technical Institute) were authorized by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, to merge their programs and students into the regionally-accredited Sullivan University and cease operations as separate institutions. [2] [3]Since June, 2018, degree and certificate programs from the former Spencerian College are included within Sullivan University's College of Allied Health and its College of Nursing.
