No-Tuition Promise

Berea is the only one of America’s top colleges that awards every enrolled student a no-tuition promise.

No student pays for tuition.

Our generous TUITION PROMISE SCHOLARSHIP makes it possible for you to graduate debt-free. Even if you borrow for special learning opportunities or to replace your family’s total contribution, you will have a low debt compared to national trends. We sometimes call Berea “the best education money can’t buy.”
