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.”

Berea College Celebrates Construction Milestone for Margaret A. Cargill Natural Sciences and Health Building

Berea College trustees, administrators, faculty, staff, and representatives from builder Messer Construction participated in a topping out ceremony on Friday, April 21, to mark another construction milestone for the Margaret A. Cargill Natural Sciences and Health building. The audience watched as a crane lifted the structure’s final beam—signed by donors and supporters of the project, and decorated with an American flag and Berea College pennants—and maneuvered it into position atop the building’s steel framework. The investment made by alumni and donors in supporting the campaign for the Margaret A. Cargill Natural Sciences and Health building propels Berea College into the 21st century and builds on the college’s long tradition of providing its students with outstanding educational opportunities and facilities. The new academic building is scheduled to open in the Fall of 2018.
