No-Tuition Promise

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

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

An 11,000 pound cupola rose more than four stories from ground-level in the construction staging area to its location atop the new Margaret A. Cargill Natural Sciences and Health building at Berea College. Personnel from Campbellsville Industries, manufacturers of the custom-designed cupola, and Messer Construction Company, which serve as the general contractors, joined the Berea College capital projects manager Richard Dodd to successfully complete the installation of the new steel and aluminum cupola that is modeled after bell tower on Berea’s historic Phelps Stokes Chapel. The newly-installed cupola measures 33 feet 8 inches tall by 12 feet wide. Construction of this building represents an investment made by alumni and donors. 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.
