At Berea College, we take our admissions decisions seriously. When we review your application, we’ll consider more than just numbers on a piece of paper.
We will evaluate all of the elements in your application file, including your transcripts, test scores, recommendations, and your personal interview. This provides us with a complete picture of who you are as a student and who you hope to become.
Our Admissions Decision Team carefully considers every application for admission and scholarship to Berea College. So you can count on our team of dedicated professionals to consider you based on your merit, financial need, and ability to contribute to our educational community.
Berea College operates as rolling admissions; however interested students are strongly encouraged to apply early and meet priority deadlines. The College maintains an open admissions policy for all applicants and considers students regardless of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, gender, disability, or sexual orientation.
The admissions process conducts a holistic review of each applicant. Many factors are considered in the selection of an applicant, including a properly completed application, personal interview, official academic records, test scores and financial eligibility. In addition to these components, we value recommendations/endorsements, extracurricular and co-curricular activities (e.g. music ensembles, athletics, theatre), community service, character and personal qualities.
